In between my oldest's graduation from high school
end of school year concerts
and visitng in-laws,
I managed to squeeze in
some much needed me time!
I was leader of fun
at a very creative pin cushion party
at Aunt Mary's!
Everyone got one of these cute fabric baskets
I made from this tutorial
( I love the fortune cookie fortune, "Expect great things today")
Here's our end of class pin cushion parade!
Virginia's too cute flower...
and creatively improvised wrap around wrist cat...
Kim's delightfully whimisical little monster...
Carmel and Alex's clever creations...
and Katie's Vodou doll and monster
with Carmel's Vodou doll and fried egg!
If you notice,
the pins in the cushions
have shrinky dink bits on them!
Here's my crumby toaster oven
with angry eyes!
After class, I noticed these wonderful wildflowers....
great color combos!
I took a doodle
with Laura Wasilowski
at Quiltworks Northwest.
(She's the Dean of Corrections at the Chicago School of Fusing!)
We were given two pieces of Laura's hand dyes
and this fabric choice of lights and darks
and true colors (light givers Mary Lou style)
was a recipe for sucess!
Here's fun and super calm Laura explaining her
fusing design process
and a little bit about her stitching.
Here's a link to her blog
These are her leftover bit creations.
Here's a quilt made by a worker who took Laura's class before...
Here's a bunch of Laura's quilts that are for sale...
and here's some of the class's creations...
and here's mine...
a dandelion for possibility
and the words
on the stem.
I am working on trusting...
everything is as it is meant to be
the universe has our backs
look for the angels
