This is a busy week for me. I have only some ATCs to show, nothing else is done. I will embroider on these, and add some beads before I trade them. I also made some fabric book pages for a trade, but they are plain, so I'll show you after the trade.

All the glass is glued on, will grout it when it's dry. This is a much truer color picture.

A flower mosaic, will grout tomorrow. Deb came over, and we played with mosaics until 9 p.m. It was a very fun day.
A fish mosaic, in process. Made it today.

Rooster 1 is framed. Got it back today.

This is frame 2. Just burned it, will paint tomorrow.

This is the other ATC holder I made last month. Just got a picture of it.

The frame is painted. I learned that the burning should be a bit deeper line before painting, to help separate the colors. Or you have to be a careful painter, I'm not. It was a fun project. Now I need a mirror.

This is a new project. It's a woodburned frame. My sister Connie made one, and I had to make my own. Now I have to paint it, will show you later.

Sunflower is done too. I like the dark green grout on this. Guess I have to buy dark brown.

The rooster 3 is grouted. I was hoping the grout would look darker, but it's done.

The turquoise purse. Got the yarn for this in Illinois last weekend. Just took out of the washer, it still needs a button.

A small purse, I just put on the button. This was done Thursday, I have another one in the washer right now.

This is Connie with me. It's all her fault.

Went downstairs for glue, accidentally made sunflower. Will grout tomorrow.

My new glass studio/furnace room.

Rooster3 with background. Wait 'til you see him after grout, tomorrow.

Rooster 3, in progress.

Deb and I on the way to the quilt show.

This weekend I went to the International Quilt Festival in Chicago, with my good friend Deb. We made mosaics at my sisters' house. This is the one I made for my sister Connie. It's my second Rooster.

The first Rooster mosaic I made.

This one is 4 Way Street.

This is my Circus mosaic. My sister Connie started it, I finished.

I just got home from ATC club. I finished this while we talked. It's a banner for July.

This is my briefcase. I made the bag a long time ago, but just put on the handles and button flap. It's about briefcase size.

This is Sundays' purse. I felted it last night, it's still damp. At this rate I'll make 180 bags this year! Better slow down. I'm just using up yarn.

Atcs for the April exchange. The theme is music, my song is You are my Sunshine.

This is Fridays' purse. I have just wet it to smooth out the book marks. It weighs almost nothing.

Wednesday, April 2, 2008

I finished another felt bag, the Pistons were playing, good time to knit.

Tuesday, April 1, 2008

Not a lot of finished things this week, sorry for long delay. As you see, the tshirt quilt is done and delivered. The Atcs I made last Friday.

My bracelet is getting there, another session or two will finish it.

A new purse, the button needs to be sewn on.
