In July's calendar girl project before the month ran out. I went for cheerful neons in the background and from that my girl appeared. I am going to share her over at Paint Party Friday, Mixed Media World (stencils) and Show Your Face.

Day Dreamer...

quilt. I am at the half way point of making my first ever quilt, nick named the 'Daydreamer' quilt because of the Moda fabric I am using. The blocks are patterns from a quilt along organised by Live Love Sew. I am learning lots and have had to spent money on new essential stash...LOL!!

I am still painting, drawing and doing all things mixed media...but at present can't share what I am doing...wink!! Hence the lack of arty posts over the past few months. But they say variety is the spice of life so I am balancing work/life creativity with my love of fabric.

I am going to share my quilt in progress over at Sew Cute Tuesday

A couple of Cosy Afternoons

My rediscovered love of sewing continues with some quilting and I was pleased to spot that there are sew/quilt alongs with free block patterns. I have signed up and am on track with one organised by Jacque Lynne Steves called 'Cosy Afternoon' these patterns include an applique or embroidery panel in the middle.

I am going to link up my blocks over at Sew Cute Tuesday and Anything but a Card: Anything Goes!

A Double Page

in someone else's journal. A scary but exciting idea when I signed up to be part of a journal circle with a group of PaperArtsy crafters. I am pleased with how she turned out and hope the recipient will like her. I am going to share my project over at Paint Party Friday, Cute Card Thursday and Show Your Face.
