We enjoyed a cozy rainy day today. Nice for sewing. Not so nice for photography. Pictures are dark. I've been having to depend on my iPhone for over a month to take pictures - yup, lost my cameral charger, A-gain! It's somewhere around here.....
My iPhone camera, for some unknown reason, leaves a black blob in every photo. Grrrrr.... See it above? When I photograph something, I try to move around the phone to position the black blob in a dark area of fabric. Doesn't always work.
Any-hoo, I finished the appliqué on the Sue Spargo Block 5 last night - ready to embellish! And in a moment of sheer weakness, I did what I said I wouldn't do. I signed up for the 2013 Sue Spargo block of the month. I know! Tell me about it! I'm so behind now!
But it's these adorable birds! Oh they are so cute! They were tweeting to me, "Stitch me! Stitch me!" I'm a sucker for animals.
The 2013 Sue Spargo BOM is only open to current BOM participants now; but soon it will be open to all who want to sign up. Spaces are limited and always fill up, so watch her blog to make sure you don't miss out if you're interested.
And here's today zig and zag. As promised I used the wavy lines as a light fabric today.
Tomorrow, I'll try to remember to tell you about my new jeans. After having a "mom" body for 25 years, I can never find a pair of jeans that fit well AND are comfortable. But I finally found them! And I bought FIVE pairs!
I am a wife, mother to two daughters, an avid art quilter, cooking contest entrant, and dog lover. My book, FABRIC PHOTO PLAY, AQS, 2005, demonstrates my original technique for making portrait quilts. My second book (with Peggy Rhodes), Quick and Easy Hexie Quilts was recently released.
