Pixelated Pumpkin

I've been busy in my studio painting, sewing, quilting, creating! I've done a lot since my last post I'd like to share but I've realized my creative process consumes me so that I forget to document what I'm doing. This is wonderful for my art but down right horrible for my blog.

Unhappy with this, I decided to brush up my nearly non-existent garment sewing skills. I have no formal training in sewing at all.

Monday in the Shade

I accompanied my hubby to the dentist office. We were running a little late and quickly made our way into the office. As I sat in the lobby, turned on my kindle to start a new book, I looked out the window.

Making Room For Something New

It's been a while since I've been here but I've been doing some reorganization in the sewing room to make room for something new, so I'm letting go of some of my fabric stash!

Is it Spring Yet?

When I walked into the floral department of our local craft store I was very happily surprised to find it filled with spring flowers!!! SO many bright, beautiful colors that made me so happy. I decided it was time to "Spring" up the house. (Even though it is technically still winter.)
