vote at spoonflower! (3)

Here's my entry for the contest "candles". Like most of my art in the fabric contests, it requires you to look closer to see all the little details... PLEASE Go vote at spoonflower!! Hope everyone is doing well and enjoying the change of season, wherever you are. It is crisply cool (mmm, cold) in Texas ...some friends are camping right now at our favorite outdoor spot & it is supposed to get below 20 tonight! I'm glad we're just going for the day tomorrow & not trying to sleep out there! brrrrr!

please excuse the mess...

I'm wanting to give my blog a little makeover but can't decide which way I want to go... so please pardon me while I figure it out. In the meantime here's some designs I've been playing at for fabric over at spoonflower. This first one is for the next contest, theme "candles". And the bears (which I'm kind of in love with!) evolved from that. I've discovered if I paint only the actual objects in the design & leave the background white, it's super easy to color only the background & make a seamless repeat...

sign, pleeeease!

I don't usually do things like this, but it's something that I feel is really important & I guess this petition needs more signatures pronto! You can hear more about it here ...he's doing an amazing job trying to get healthier food for the kiddos --enjoyed last season of his show so much & they're getting ready to film another one soon! ...So just thought I'd help in my own little way to spread the word...thanks ya'll!

sweety girl in ballet class

Finally posting these ...she's been taking ballet/tap/gymnastics class for about two months now & really enjoying it! I'm so glad because I wanted her to start while she was still young to help with coordination & confidence ...& it gives her something to look forward to every week, which really helps with homeschooling! (thankyou marmie & ali aunt!!!)

Blogger's Quilt Fest

I haven't had any new quilts finished like would have liked, so my entry is my trusty ol' Amy Butler "just because" quilt. It was one of the first sewing projects I ever did, probably going on ten years ago. It's a great example of how a quilt starts to become like an old friend, worn & loved.   

              Now go check out all the amazing quilts & get inspired!
