It's been a while since I posted here... a little depression mostly has kept me away from doing much work. I did take some pictures this week of quilts I have worked on recently. I started this bento box quilt about 3 years ago, and finished sewing the interior of the quilt at the last retreat I went on. It still needs borders... I think...
I also finished up the sashing on my horse quilt. It is a Buggy Barn design, and the horses need buttons for eyes yet, but I have to finish up the border on this one too - but I ran out of grass fabric, I'll have to find something else for the border...
I also finished up Paris Cats - The applique is on, and the quilt is ready for quilting... I even made a back for it - just have to get in there and quilt it!
And another Buggy Barn design... this one based on their 'Crazy Rays' but done in RW&B. I was hoping to donate it to quilts of valor, but I need to find someone who will quilt it for them, as I've kinda lost interest in finishing it. We'll see... If I can't find someone, maybe I'll find the enthusiasm to do it myself sometime in the future.
And lastly, this weekend, I made 8 fabric postcards. I made my first postcard snowglobes this weekend - It took a little work to make the snowglobe part - some vinyl, careful stitching and some seed beads for the 'snow'. They actually came out kinda cute. And I got so excited over the success with the snowglobes that I forgot to put fabric on the backs of 5 of the postcards before I did the edge-stitching on them. Whoops! So I added backs and just did a straight stitch about 1/8" in from the edge to hold the backs in place... Hope they hold up.
At least I did something creative this weekend... otherwise it would have been a total waste - I spent most of the weekend watching movies on TCM and AMC... They were showing old westerns, romantic comedies and musicals... I couldn't resist. I really need to turn off the TV and do more creative things with fiber... Maybe I have too many passions... sigh
What a Sweet Retreat!
