Getting a little filing done ..

My art studio has been suffering from clutter, and much of it are patterns I have printed out. Not for quilts- clothing, pouches, knitting, etc. So I have been filing it all away. I need to split this collection between sewing and knit/ crochet. Not glamorous, but at least there is less clutter, and I can find what I need. Yay!

Playing with color

Painted chips I'm considering for the kitchen, family room and dining room. Kumquat friendly!

The cone of shame

Once in a while, Ginger won't stop chewing on her paws, and that's when the dreaded Cone of Shame appears. Sorry, Gingie!

Hexie hairband

I made this headband for Sammy after seeing the idea on, via the Sew Can She tutorial website. Oh no, I thought I was so over making hexagons, but their recent popularity has hooked me back in. Just for a bit, then I'll quit. (Spoken like an addict)

These were 1/4" hexagons, a new size for me. You can copy off sheets of any size hexagon for free on various websites. I think I used

What I've been working on

Lately, I submitted 2 art quilts for consideration in two separate exhibits. Fingers crossed!!

Now that that's done, I've been finishing up some flowers and leaves, which I am about to send to Pokey for the "community garden" that will be at Quilt! Knit! Stitch! in Portland this August. I think the garden is such a clever idea. I confess that my flowers were started for other projects.

Lavender cat

I whipped up this little stuffed cat for my granddaughter. It turned out a little wonky-  am hoping its flaws will give it personality!  I was inspired by a photo someone posted on FB, with no name of the designer. Wish I knew who it was, but anyway mine turned out skinnier and wonkier. You might need to click on the photo to see the whole thing.
