Funky Little Coffee Mat

I bought this at the Des Moines quilt show this year and decided it would make a great carry along project.  It did!  All I meed to do is the blanket stitch around the edge.  The design is by Darlene Smith of One Wing Wool out of Minnesota.  Here is a link to her website:

So much for posting daily....

I have been creative every day, even if I don't post....Here is my progress on Harvest Sampler.  I love when I get to adding the beads although it means I can no longer carry the piece around.  I have spilled beads at a coffee house once.  What a pain!

Homemade Stamps

I played with my craft foam today.  Been wanting to do this and see if I like it.  The middle picture was with yellow paint and I did not think it would show on the blog.  I restamped with brown paint.  Fun!!  Dd likes the triangles best.  I like the circles.  What about you?

Mail Art Start

I think this will be fun to cut up or fold up and stick in the mail.  Perfect for a long letter to my mom. It is a big envelope that my ds received with college junk mail.

Gelli Printing

Someone donated some maps to the local library and so we played gelli printed.  I now have a huge stack of paper to use in my art.  That is if my dd doesn't use them first.

Thread Counter

I made this for my local EGA.  I will be teaching it in January.  I have a few beads (cough, cough) in my stash to share....
