Happy Friday!!!

Love the weekends. Last weekend was very productive, hoping this weekend will be too. Along with the clutches and needle case I posted last weekend, I also tried something new. Tried making a fabric background with bits of fabric placed between solvy. Found this technique in Fabric Art Collage -40+ Mixed Media Techniques.
Not as successful as I hoped, but not bad for a first try. I'll be trying this again this weekend, my friend Kathi gave me some good suggestions on how to do this technique.

Happy Friday, wishing everyone a WONDERFUL Weekend.

Made a few things

Sunday night already? Where did the weekend go? Stained door casings, made a couple sample clutches, finished my last "Ugly" Swap gift, and did a little crazy quilting.

I'm going to make a clutch for Emily, my daughter, to use on her wedding day. I've made a couple samples to determine what size she would like. I have a yard of Champagne Dupioni Silk on order. I made these two this weekend.

This one is about 7" wide Sarah choose the fabric for this sample.

This one is about 6" wide, made out of Ivory dupioni silk, great find in the remnant bin at JoAnn's.

I'll be trying another style next week.

I participated in an "Ugly" swap with the HGTV group. My swap partner was Dyed Grey, she made me this beautiful quilted table topper. Amazing what she did with the ugly FQ I sent to her.
I'm not a tradational quilter, I made a couple crazy quilted pieces and one quilt block zipper pouch. I need to mail this last piece, needle case.

Happy Creating, wishing everyone a Great Week.
