I won a ribbon at my guild's show

I was surprised and pleased that my quilt "Flower Frenzy" won a ribbon: first place contemporary, individual! This happened at the  Flying Geese Quilt Show, aka Harvest of Quilts this past weekend at Soka University in Aliso Viejo. 

This was the quilt I made for the Sizzix blog hop last Spring. All the flowers and leaves were made on a Sizzix die cutting machine.

Circle skirt

I just made this circle skirt for my granddaughter Sammy to wear for Halloween. She is obsessed with cats, and the Simplicity pattern had a kitty version, in addition to the usual poodle. 
It comes with petticoat directions. What do you think? Do you think it is needed?
Curious Matilda had to come take a look.

Quilting Arts Magazine has Grandpa T!

I was flipping through the latest Quilting Arts Magazine, and I was thrilled to see that "Grandpa T and his Salad" was included in an article about Quilt Alliance's Animals We Love. Page 27, October-November issue. Woohoo, I am so surprised! 

Love to embroider

A tiny tear in my pants provided a creative opportunity.

Recent artful projects

Accessories for me, from vintage Alpha fabric. The bigger one is for my Mac Book Air, the smaller one for phone...
A doll made recently in my First Friday group. Jeanette Kelly originally taught us the techniques. 
A second purple dog, ordered by a friend:
The rest are items I made for my soon to arrive second granddaughter. So fun to sew tiny things!

Can't forget the first purple dog.

I have just updated my calendar of Coming Events, seen in the column on the right. And I have 5 art quilts out and about, to be seen in public places between now and November!

Now the magic happens....

Making loud pants, as part of the Alpha Challenge.
