I used my energy cleaning up the mess I left behind, from all my recent projects. I am tired out, and still have mess to clear away. So, here is a picture of the next tropical quilt, not quilted yet. It was hard to make, since I completely changed the design several times, and started over.

This scarf is number 21. I knitted it a few weeks ago, but just wove in the ends. I love the Noro yarn. Every one of the colors is gorgeous.
Another new tropical quilt. I can't remember the name of this flower right now, will let you know. Number 20.

This is my grandfather, dressed as a cowboy, about 1910. The quilt was the first project I made for the Creativity Task, which I mentioned before. The task was to use the colors butterscotch, aqua, and ivory, in a fiberart piece. I got a chance to use the buttons my friend, Gail, gave me for my birthday. Number 19.

Number 18, just finished, Pink Passion.

Sunday, January 24, 2010

Three Birds of Paradise, finished today. Number 17.

I put the binding on these three too.

Hibiscus, finished. Number 16.
This is the story. I am part of a fiberarts group, with a two week task. We draw from a bag, a few techniques we have to use in a fiberart piece every 2 weeks. Last time the draw was1.) Start with black and white, add 3 colors. 2. ) Seed stitch. 3.) Cut with a wavy line. 4.) Add borders.
I used a busy scrap of black and white. I added red, yellow and green. I cut my apple with a wavy line. I added borders, and seed stitched all over. I did not like this piece. The only good thing is the way it feels, with all the seed stitches.
So, this week we drew the following: 1.) Add triangles. 2.) Repeat a shape in many sizes. 3.) Attach something loosley.
I decided to start with my last piece, since I didn't like it.
Cut apart. I cut it in a triangle, and other odd shapes. Feels good.

Under construction.

From the top. I added circles, in the form of buttons, in several sizes.
Apple side of structure. I attached a clump of grapes button, loosely.
Finished structure. Number 15. I like it better now.

Viewers' Choice, on the right, Holly Kreag.

All the other winners have ribbons shown.

I decided to kick the door down. This is one of the new tropical quilts made today. The other 2 I made last week. I still have to quilt them all, so am not counting yet.

Can you tell I'm having trouble getting into my sewing room? It's like an invisible door is closed. I think it's all in my mind.

This is a good day to sit and sew. It's been snowing for more than an hour. This is another of the bracelets from December, so I won't count it. It's the project for Art Salad class, Jan. 18. I call it a high fiber bracelet.
