You never know what you might see on the backyard trailcam, especially on Halloween. He he he.
Sometimes I just feel like one.
Happy Halloween Readers...
|This is the view from my sewing machine.|
|The view of the rest of the sewing room.|
Check out the clever way to raise a normal table to a better height for cutting. PVC leg add ons.
|Mary made a tee shirt quilt for a friend.|
I always thought I should make one of these, but now I know it is a difficult project.
|Linda sewed a lap quilt. The Christmas images reminded us of vintage Christmas cards.|
|Sharon made several purses for gifts.|
|Mary cranked out a bunch of pillow cases, all with doggie prints.|
She's donating these to a fundraiser for the Humane Society.
|Several made totes.|
These were beautiful with many pockets and features.
|Inspecting the finished tote.|
|It was nice to have room to layout the pieces.|
This is Brenda's quilt for a young friend.
|The ping pong table served as a good place to layout squares and planning a pattern.|
|Jan was working on a nice quilt for their camper.|
|My strips sewn together waiting to be cut into lengths.|
|I spent the first day working on binding my yellow brick road quilt.|
This quilt was pieced at a class last March.
|Mary had to pin the backing to the quilt top and stabilize the batting.|
|This part of the process is tedious.|
|It takes a lot of pins to be sure the batting and backing do not shift.|
|Jan's finished quilt top.|
|Linda was working on a bib for Finley, her new grandson who is coming soon.|
Is that a cute monster, or what!
|Mary got into the purse business too.|
I would have loved to have made one of these, but I was focused on my quilt top.
|Starting to layout the blocks to arrange by color and value.|
My final layout and all blocks and strips sewn.
|Two projects completed!|
|Brenda finished piecing her quilt.|
|The artist's description: Here I’ve tried to capture a perfect beach day. The south shores of Maui are ideal for sunbathing and playing in the waves. This picture highlights the perfect blues you can see looking out from Kihei and Makena, under a bright sky with just a touch of soft clouds. I’ve used my favorite ocean colors, Prussian Blue, Deep Turquoise, and some Cobalt Teal. This is a fun memento of a sunny day at the beach.|
|The bottom of the quilt starts on the sandy beach |
and then moves up through the ocean and into the deep blue sea at the top of the quilt.
|Next steps for this quilt is just to sew shams to match.|
|Last of the cosmos|
|This little guy was hanging on in the wind. I love how they puff up to stay warm.|
|Artsy fartsy isn't really my thing.|
|The sounds these cranes make as they fly over is pretty amazing.|
|The sun hitting the birds as they fly in.|
|There were big groups of cranes and big flocks of geese.|
|These two were settling in for the night I suppose.|
|Some scenery, while the colors are dulling towards winter, it is still a pretty time of year.|
|The sunset was worth the drive.|
|It was a blinding and beautiful setting of the sun for sure.|
|These swans were busy preening.|
|A gnarly old tree that is home to some kind of critter.|
