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.

Elizabeth- WIP

I haven't been working on Elizabeth as I am trying to get that pilot class done.  But every now and then she gets a few stitches.

I Can't Spell

I have been wanting to improve my lettering style for a while and finally forced myself to play in my notebook.  Now if I could just learn to spell.... I am working on a needlepoint piece every night, but it is a pilot course and I can't post pictures.  Too bad as it is lots of fun!  Will try to show Elizabeth soon.

Forgot My Camera

Well, I did play with my friends, but did not bring my camera so I thought I would post my progress on Harvest Sampler.  I am glad my scarecrow has pants....

Art Every Day 2-Junque Journal

This is my new journal that I just put together.  I used the folders that I gelli printed last week.  I wanted to get it put together to share with my library art friends on Monday.  We are going to play on Monday.  Hopefully I can get some pictures of our work to share.
