Where have I been?

Cowabunga! I can’t believe it’s been almost a MONTH without a post! What have I been doing? Well, most recently, I was spending time with my younger son, John, car shopping. Long story short–he has a car!

I’ve also been in some more charm swaps thru the Charmsters from Art & Soul; namely, Dirty Dozen, Going Grunge and Mica. Here are my charms…..Going grungeGoing GrungeAnd these are my Mica charms–the theme was ‘Home’–mine are titled ‘Le Chateau’.Then I also made some ‘Button Fairies’. I was really having a time making these charms–they just weren’t coming together fast enough, and I ended up cutting it pretty close timewise. So I needed to do something that was just ‘fun’–yeah, right! My fingers were so sore when by the time I finished these! I started of with thinner wire, but it just give it the body that I like, so I switched to a heavier gauge, which I liked better, but the tradeoff was–PAIN!!!!! But then, I guess I didn’t have to make 8 of them. Don’t laugh–I planned to make 18!–but kinda ran out of buttons. Well, that’s not quite true. I have buttons, but just not ones that I wanted to use for them. You know what I’m talkin’ about! And I was thrilled when my daughter wanted one for her bulletin board at work!Button Fairies And while I’m at it, I’m going to post the latest quilt that I made. It’s a Stack n Whack–and huge! It needs a little more work, then it’ll be going on Etsy…..Stack n Whack qulit I don’t know why it’s so dark, so here are some of the individual blocks: Stack n Whack quilt blockStack n Whack quilt blockStack n Whack quilt block Well, that’s all for tonite–gotta keep artin’!
