inside was the star banner with my word for the year lettered and colored on it -- way cool!
it's hung clear at the top of the design wall -- to help me remember what I'm supposed to be doing!
the voting for the challenge winner goes on over here on the Etsy Beadweavers Blog
if you're interested, go over and take a look and vote on your favorite
the point is I make these to be used and enjoyed on a daily basis -- my way of sharing a daily hug!
this quilt was made for my daughter, and the silvery wings had become very thread bare, so she brought her quilt in to "the shop" for the needed repairs
the wings have been replaced (well, I actually appliqued a new wing layer over the old one!) and I have put a layer of fleece on the back and requilted in the necessary places
working on the new binding now, so this will be done soon
at the time, the adorable tractor buttons worked fine since it was an adult person doing the buttoning
now days, he's all about doing it himself (a good thing!), so his mama requested that I switch out the buttons for something easier
these vintage orange buttons are just the thing, and he took it home with him today
early in the week I had a real problem with the trim that is supposed to go around the windshield, so I picked that part out and refocused on doing the door, the fender and the hood
along the way of doing that I've figured out a different approach to that pesky trim piece -- yeah!
marching right along
Fog + Cold = Art Inspiration!!
this is what the tree in my front yard looked like at dawn this morning -- no, it did not snow again last night, we just had heavy fog that created all these little "twig-cicles"
as if I didn't already have a long list of art work I want to do! Mother nature just added another one to my list
