Three day’s off…

And I spent time at home. It was nice to get some things done. I have to say that staying away from the crowds and stores was fab. I looked a local nurseries for a future fairy garden. I did get groceries. I went on a bit of a ride in the forest and saw elk.  I relaxed. Hmmmm. What a concept!!!  I didn’t waste time looking for stuff I don’t need. Saved money, too! Next weekend is a Highland games and I am saving my money for things I need from Ikea. A once a year trip to that part of our state.

I did a lot of stitching and a bit of drawing.  Here are a few pictures. I have to say that it feels good to be creating things.

2014-07-05 18.24.43 I made the lower left tangle this weekend. 2014-07-05 20.36.48 I made two pair of baby shorts for the grandbabies, I have a lot to learn about using a serger and knit fabrics. However, I think they turned out better than I anticipated!

2014-07-06 17.45.58I started an art quilt with some of my stashed fabrics. I love the idea of making mini quilts or sketches as Gwen Marsten called her concept mini quilts, I went to see them at a museum last winter. I am machine sewing and then long arming the quilt. I have tons of scrap battings to try and experiment with different textures in stitches. This picture shows some ideas I am playing with. This is just the beginning of this little project. I expect that it will not look anything like this when it is done.
