Table runner

Well I am surprised as to what I am actually doing this past winter, I thought it was not too much but by the looks at my posts and pictures, I have been busy..hahah..

This is the table runner that I completed a few weeks ago. I love the middle square with my angels/ the colors I just love. This was fast and easy to do, and once I started..I had so much fun I kept on going until it was finished..YEA

Quilt as you go..

This is a great way to use up little pieces of material, I wanted to make mine consistant in color, but a mixture of colors would be great also. I just have to label it and it will be on its way to my granddaughter's bed. I added the yo-yo as a different touch, I really liked the outcome.
This was done by machine and by hand.

Beaded Necklace and Bracelet

Here are my two completed items after taking a jewerly class. The necklace is beaded with black and deep purple beads, and the bracelet is with shades of black/grey/clear swarorski crystals. Right now I am working on a two technique necklace, it is crotched beaded rope/and viking knit. That necklace is not finished yet...

Beading Embellishing

This is the result of my beading embellishing class that I took. It is filled with a lovely sent of cedar/lavendar and essential oils.

Gabriel's quilted jacket

I almost forgot about my grandson's quilted jacket I completed in the new year. This is Gabriel's jacket and he loves Thomas the train anything,..It is quilted free motion and I embroidered the all aboard log and conductor design with my embroidery machine. He loves it!

Its been a long while

Well, well..I can not believe it is not 2011, and it has been so long that I forgot my password.

My creative surges are very short these past few years since I graduated from College, with working all week, it leaves only weekends for some fun/or down time, but housework and family are first and then creative time is last on the list..but I would like to add, I have been doing a few things.

I took a short little class, a few hours on beading embelishing and loved it.

I started a quilt as you go last fall. It was a Saturday class, and I have finished that also. I just have to add a label to the back of the quilt. My granddaughter will be the owner of this one. I plan to make one for each of my five grandchildren.

I have done a few beading classes, and enjoyed that also.

Hopefully it will not be so long until the next time I blog..sonja
