3 Studios Challenge is done.

Well here we are, just put the finishing touches on this. May need to finish some more...we'll see. The theme of the challenge was "puzzle" I figured the convergence quilt was a good puzzle. Things blending and mingling. Reminicent of family and people converging and blending in puzzle like formation. The cranes flying overhead seperate yet in still in the picture. The flowers add a soft touch to the picture..kinda like how nature softens the edges of our structured lives by reminding us of the beauty that's out there. Enjoy.

I'm so excited

I am so excited. I just won the 3 Creative Studios Block of the month prize package. It's the bomb!! It includes a package of Misty Fuse, Art + QUilt by Lyric Kinard, package of hand dyed by Vicki Walsh, art print and hand knit clutch by Terri Stegmiller, fray check and a spool of wonderfil thread.....I'm just tickled....it's better than getting a bunch of birthday squishies in the mail. Now I'm so jazzed I'll have to get the next block done at retreat this weekend...woooohooo. Everyone should come join the fun. See appropriate links on this page. On another note we have off school today because of another 7 inches of snow. I warned people that February would kick our collective butt and it is surly doing a good job of it. Will post snow dying photos after I do lesson plans for school....(thank God for the extra snow day so I can formally put those plans to paper );0)

Maria Elkins Class

Yesterday had class with Maria Elkins,

really cool.

Learned this cool new technique and I think with some more time and tweekage this could really be cool. Great for Chirstmas maybe. Right now I've got snow all ready to go in totes for snow dying..more on that in the next few days.

My Inner Light in progress

Ok so before I broke my foot I managed to get the arcs done for my Inner Light quilt....and there is a picture of what the top will look like kinda sorta eventually. So there are eight sets altogether. Not too bad. Could have used a little more transition from yellow to orange...Maybe I can get the rest done at retreat next weekend.

What a challenging couple of weeks

Ok so I've got this air cast on my foot now..been close to three weeks and I'm ready to stop feeling like i'm 15..hate the inability of just getting in the car a going somewhere...have to plan rides....sucks. On top of that I haven't been quilting like I'm used to..arrgh. But alas in the last few days I've managed to get a few things accomplished. The one of the left (red)is a sneek peek of the the 3 Creative Studios Challenge due Feb 28...the one on the right (purple) is block 5 of the 3 Creative Studios clock of the month...
