Some Different Art

I think I might be able to get back into regular blogging again, now that cool weather is settling in and the thought of that white stuff covering every inch of ground is something I'm trying to avoid. The garden bed is ready to plant garlic tomorrow. And with the last clean up of the patio clutter, I'm beginning to get that 'nesting feeling' again! That means more cooking, baking and creating.

If you've been following this blog for anytime, you would know that I love to create, be it quilting, making art, crafting, etc.

Last summer an artist friend and I played with wax painting. This is a new medium to us and we started out with inexpensive supplies such as leftover mat board, beeswax, crayons, etc. These are what I did in the summer of 2014.  Remember, this was just play. I wasn't trying to create anything recognizable, just trying to wok with something new.

Embellished with ribbons and findings.

What to do with that odd earring.

Shells and cheesecloth.

And this was this summer's endeavor:

Alcohol ink and glitter embellished.

Alcohol ink and gold leaf. I placed a ribbon hanger on this one and it hangs on a hallway wall.

Quilter Activated Again

Hi Everyone! Did ya miss me? It's been a busy year.  My dear husband is still on the mend from his stroke last April and is permanently retired now. It's been an adjustment not being on a upside down work schedule for both of us, a new chapter in our lives. And next summer, oh do we have a honey-do list for him to work on around the house and yard.

And as for me, after more than a year of not quilting, the quilts have been calling my name. We disposed of our spare bedroom set and that gave me the space to set up my quilting frame again. The following pictures show my latest quilt project, a quilt top that had be languishing in a drawer for untold years. There is another, larger one awaiting it's turn on the quilting frame too. And then there are the unfinished UFOs. shall I go on? LOL

This is just a teaser post. I have more to share...flora, fauna, art projects and whatever else I can cook up. I love all of you who follow my blog. It's good to be back in blogland. Hugs!
