One Art Fair... Coming Up!

Next weekend is the Art Fair. I'm hurrying to get enough done to not have an empty table. Sheesh... so I'm working on it... here are a couple pieces that will be there.

The first one is a flower garden (Zippity Doo Dah) with flowers made of buttons and zippers, and a sun of spiraled yarn. Below is a typical log cabin design, but assembled in an Atypical fashion - it's a no-sew piece.

Ahh September!

Well it's the 10th of Sept so I figured I need to get in gear with this blog. The political scene is pretty dismal, like kids on a playground hitting each other. It's almost too much to watch at this point. Thank goodness it's coming to a close soon. On to more important things, like quilting and art! I'm working on an art quilt for a daughter of a friend of mine. She'll be turning 5 in a few days, and I sure hope to that this ready for her wall. The request was something to fill a 12" x 12" space and she's all into Princess stuff these days, so I thought a pink and purple castle would be appropriate. I have a page where Im posting pics as I progress, but I've been sick for a few days (4 to be exact) so I'm a little behind. Here's a peek if you want to see it. I'll post the final version here once it's done.
--WELL HERE IT IS!! Sept 13th and it's done. -Delivered even!

I have another idea in the works.. and in that I have started using some of the fabric from the dye project below! some blues and greens have already made their way into it...keep tuned to see what turns out!
