Working on the little samples for camp, but barely started on them so really nothing new to show.
My day started with an interview for the local paper about my art hanging at the library right now. I was glad to go in and chat because I hadn’t taken any pics of the show after I hung it. The nook they put the art in is very cozy, with armchairs and a fireplace and it makes you feel as though the art could be hanging in your home. I like that a lot.
This is still my current favorite piece!
And space on each side of the fireplace, along with their permanent art pieces.
It’s always fun to have your art on display!
My day included a little jaunt to a quilt shop about an hour away. I knew that I would not get away without some fabric, despite my attempts to destash, but I was very conservative!
Half yards and yards, though, where I usually only buy fat quarters, but aren’t they gorgeous!
And a quick step-by-step of the sample distraction project, because it is DONE!
Another one mounted on wool, with edges fringed and wild, but I’m liking the way these look hanging on the wall. I need to get out of the green/turquoise family, though. I’m feeling like it might be time for some orange on the next one.
And the most joyful part of the day came in the mail. My aunt was on a little trip, went into a store and saw THIS–
She knows I like colorful fabrics but she had no idea that I LOVE sugar skulls and this fabric is totally awesome. Aunt Jean is also super awesome!!! Thank you.
Now I need to get going on stitching up those sample pieces!
