Cheers to 2012!
Thinking about love (my love shack)...
and more love and...
"lettingo" - on the wing of a bird on a pretty magic wand.
My "word-for-the-year" is lettingo.
It makes me happy and brighter (and lighter) just to think about lettingo.
(bird was inspired by an article in the latest Quilting Arts magazine)
Always...thoughts of the beach! Oh how I love that beachy feeling!
I made "new" light, medium, and dark fabric from some Kaffe and used these pieces
to make a beach scene with sand, water, sky, shack, and palm tree.
(inspired by Edrica Huws' book Patchwork Pictures.)
Besides thinking about love and lettingo, I want to make more fun little projects this year. I have been sewing lots of the hexes, so I having a special place for the process was a good project to start.
It gave me a chance to use a bit of each fabric my boys picked out for Christmas.
Three big pockets for each stage of a hex.
I especially like that I used this big bead that was on a necklace I impulsively bought at Houston and have never worn. I put the necklace around the whole book and laid it in the middle.
On the outside, the necklace string gave me a place to tie on these polka dot strips.
On the inside, I wrapped some floss and used the floss to sew the necklace down.
For the next project...Good fortune is waiting!
What's your word or project you'd like to make this year?
