For many years when the kids were little and I was still working in the Insurance World…well Halloween was where a lot of creativity was released. I’d like to say that Paul & Emily were some pretty decked out costumed kids each year.
Well Emily was easy…she just wanted to be some type of Princess each and every year.
She was a Princess,Another Princess,a Fairy Princess, a Angel Princess and a Medieval Princess. Yes this should be a bit of a warning sign for those “Princes” out there.
Still working on the “Hexies”…if you are a friend on Facebook you know this by my daily status updates. Will post some Hexie info here and there on the blog but I am trying to keep the material different and fresh.
During the late summer I was drawn back to eBay and it’s vast array of vintage quilt block offerings. I think having my tablet(a new toy!) and being able to just quickly check in and bid on things was a factor…but let’s just say a few block purchases….ummm….address relocations happened.
I pulled out a set and put them up on the wall. I am going to let them stay there for a few days so I can enjoy them and they can speak to me regarding how to finish them.
But if you look closely (not to closely yet..still working on a website update…but soon) you will see traditional blocks have been making their way into the backgrounds of my art quilts for a few years now.
“Let my Traditional Quilting Freak Flag Fly”
So this blog will cover both. Art Quilting and Traditional Quilting (heck I even love to do needle turn applique!)
and some knitting…
…and some kid stories….and whatever wacky thing that Paul Sr. does…
it could be interesting.
