I'm so glad the holidays are over and I can sew again! Can you believe that I am having so much fun and I'm so busy that I haven't taken a nap since December? lol (Usually, I take naps when I'm either bored or sick....mostly! I just thought I should throw that in there for clarification.) It's gotten so bad that we hardly have a space to eat, the table is so filled with stuff! (Current projects are done in the kitchen, spare...."immediate need" stuff is in the dining room. You've seen the table!) I do move the sewing machine though. Otherwise Toby might eat the cords. lol He still loves to chew on stuff!! Sweet baby!
Remember, I told you that I was starting 2012 with solids??? What fun! Only.......I sure wish I could work faster!!! I have so much in my head that it's getting to where I am making quilt wall hanging tops only, just to get the stuff outta my brain and on/in fabric! That's NEVER happened before! I think I'm on my 8th project right now. I'm naming my newest series, "Abstracts"! Quite clever, I know! (Hey, I sew, I don't name stuff.............although I must admit that I ADORE naming my work!! (Secretly I always wanted to work in a paint factory so I could name the colors..........honestly!! Not many people know that about me!)
Okay, okay......I know, you probably want to see something. You didn't come here to hear me blab! There are two that I recently posted that I can show you. The others are either being auditioned for swaps or aren't done yet......sorry! First of off, we have ...................."Trees":
It's 9 x 19 inches.....and kind of ZEN like (or so I've been told). In actuality all I was striving for in the beginning was to see if tree limbs would look better if I used my rotary cutter rather than a scissors. Once I got them on fabric, I drew (and cut out) a zillion little pieces and fused them to represent the leaves. It's okay, but rather dull for me, wouldn't you say??? Who would guess in a million years that I would have a background of gold??? Eikes!
I do like this one better! I named this one, "Artsy-Fartsy". (My cleverness has no bounds!!)
And the back (which could be a quilt itself if it wasn't for all the lint and birds nests. Duh!) lol Incidentally, this wall hanging is 15 1/2 inch square!
So, there you have it! I'll get back to work now! It's 5:30 am (on Saturday) and I am ready! Who needs sleep anyway??
