Digger Progress!

I spent some time on the flyer portion of the quilt.  This is the part that represents the wall.  Look at the photo below.  The flyers go where the ugly tannish color is.

 

Bags and Bags

I made some bags in hopes of stoking my confidence before starting the Digger quilt in ernest.  The above photo is of today's bag.  It's a little on the heavy side.  The pattern I used called for silk, and I used flannel.  It's pretty cool though.

Fabric is Here!

My Spoonflower fabric has ARRIVED!  I am very happy to say that it looks awesome.  I can now begin the production of the Digger quilt.

Destruction to Creation

This was once my favorite shirt.  When I was in my early 20's, I wore this nearly out.  Long ago, I put it away.  In our current house, it's been hanging in the hall closet ever since we moved in (7ish years ago).  I have not worn it in way more than 10 years.  Today, I destroyed it in hopes of making something else.

Shirt Complete!

I made my deadline.  Thank goodness.  Phil's shirt turned out pretty cool.

 

The back is pretty cool too.  I added color to the sleeves.

 

Retail

My greeting cards are now availble in Chain Reaction Records .  Talk about exciting!

 

 

Snack Bags and Badassery

                        When I was a teenager, I was lucky enough to work at the haunted house at Celebrity Sports Center.  I was a monster during two Octobers.  I loved it.  I’ll never forget being in the Egyptian Room and watching the guy from Teletunes walk into the room.  I was frozen and sitting on top of a pillar.  I was well above his head.  I remember him physica

Snack Bags and Failure

I finally sat down at my sewing machine today.  I made up these snack bags, since we don't have enough.  I actually made a lot more than are here.  I had not sewn anything in 3ish weeks until today.  It has been awful.  I am ready to jump back in.  Gates is calling to me.

Doing Stuff for Other People Continued

I finally got 2 skirts made up for Skirting the Issue.  I made two very simple gathered skirts.  I really like the stripes.  My 5 year old picked out this fabric.

I love the flowers in this next one.
