There. Another project completed. It's always wonderful for me to see something that began as an idea formed in my mind, perhaps schetched on paper, grow and become reality. Sometimes I see faults, sometimes I'm pleased, but always there is something to learn for the next project, whatever it may be.

The quilting ladies, our little bee, were at my home for our regular meeting, and it passed their approval, man and child were also pleased with it last night when it finally went up, so I guess it's a succeeded project. Yipee!

Now it's back behind my sewing machine, working on the red and white log cabin..so stay tuned....

wall hanging

The latest project: a 3 piece wall hanging for in the dining room to bring in some color. I chose the warm green of Kaffe Fassett fabrics that were interesting but restful to the eye. The project has taken longer than it should, but if all goes well it should be hanging before the end of the week!
It's very simple really, just one piece appliqued over the other, then stapled over a hand-made frame and hung on see-through suspension threads so it floats just in front of the wall.

Can't wait until it's done - then it'll be off to the next project - another log cabin project in red and white.....

I'm back!


It's been a very long time since I've written!
Where have I been? In Second Life, exploring new worlds, meeting wonderful people, making good friends, and working in this never boring world. One of the first things I did once I figured out how to move forward and backward, is joined a quilting group. A great, creative group of people from all over the world, it's been very inspiring to see their work, and share ideas. After realizing I'd need some money to be able to "live" like many of the residents and have a decent representation in the form of my avatar, I went looking for a job and found it teaching English as a Second language. Come of my colleagues have become good friends with whom exploring SL has been one adventure after the other.

After all this time, I finally feel a bit settled in Second Life, so now I've returned to my passions and projects that have been waiting patiently for my hands...
It's been weeks and weeks since I've really sat down and got to stitching, and I"m missing it. Stayed tuned for some shots of the latest project, a simple tryptic wall hanging in two Kaffe Fassett farbics. Something was needed in the dining room to bring some more color into it, but had to be restful to the eyes. If the sun will shine today - I'll add to the post...

SBQ of the Week: January 16, 2008

This week's SBQ was suggested by Outi and is:

What is your favorite past time while stitching? Do you just enjoy
silence, listen to music/audiobooks or do you "watch" TV/movies? Do
you have specific favorites you listen to/watch while stitching?

Normally I settle down during quiet moments of the day in my favorite corner of the couch, with a good murder-mystery series or plugged into my iPod and stitch away, a hot mug of tea with hands' reach.

A lot of stitching gets done in the evenings - as well during football season (soccer) when I don't have much choice (read: none!) as to what to watch. It's not all bad - a lot of eye candy in colorful shorts passes when giving the eyes some rest!
