First, I'd like to welcome my new followers! I truly hope you enjoy my posts. I offer tutorials, recipes, guest bloggers and tons of needlework & craft eye candy! I'd love to hear how you found my blog.
I've been busy the past few days, stitching on some little Halloween Crazy Quilt Cat Dolls! Here are the first 2:
I have a few more in progress but these are available in the shop now. I think I'll do an Autumn purse when I complete the next litter of Halloween kitties!
Also in the shop are some new Scarecrow Tussy Mussy's by mom:
There are 6 different Scarecrow Tussy Mussy's available, each one is different and so cute! Mom is now working on some Halloween Tussy Mussy's!
Does anyone else feel like it's August already? I don't know what it is but I feel like I should be putting out a few sunflowers and mums! Maybe it's the extreme heat we've had the past few weeks. Feels like I should be baking apple pies & carrot cake!
I've had Autumn on my mind a lot lately and came up with these sweet little Spider Web Needlekeepers:
I just love doing spider webs on Crazyquilts but wanted to make a few needle-keepers. I'm planning on making a few more of these, not necessarily with spiderwebs but perhaps some flowers. When I do, I'll write up a tutorial for you. I'm going to make 1 little change to how I put them together next time.
In other news, Bubba has the gas tank in the Model A:
And he has the fenders on it:
Every day is getting a little closer!!! Scott's been working on it for 7 years now! If you would like to see more photos of our 1929 Ford Model A Tudor Sedan, click here to visit my Flickr site.
Last week I mentioned that I plan to write some articles on coping with disorders such as ADD/ADHD, BiPolar, depression, anxiety and Seasonal Affective Disorder Syndrome using creativity to ease the symptoms. From personal experience, I think it's safe to say that I've become quite the expert on the subject. I like to keep my blog cheerful and uplifting so I won't be complaining about these things. I've been able to see much of my disorders with a sense of humor! I just want to help others who who suffer with these things. I want other women to know that they're not alone and that artistic creativity is tool that we can use to work with the disorders rather than fighting them constantly. I'll be starting this series of discussions in the next day or so.
I joined the Sister In Bloggerette Sorority at Some Days Are Diamonds blog:
Please hop over to Karen's blog and read about it! Join too! I think it'll be fun!
Well, I could swear there was something else I wanted to talk about today but it now eludes me. I think my brain is fried for the day! I'll leave you with my sister's newest pair of earrings:
These gorgeous green quartz earrings remind of Jadite Fire King! They are so pretty in person!!! And, they are available here.
