The road to hell and all that…

I have such good intentions of blogging. Every day, I think to myself, I really need to get back out there and blog. And every day, I find something else that needs to be done more urgently. And I wonder if anyone is even waiting to read what I have to see or to see

More to share

Today I was inspired to use the pieces of a purse I had started to make several months ago. I was making a lot of totes, but I wanted something that was more of a purse – with a closure. I started it and then I couldn’t figure out how to finish it. Until yesterday,

A busy week

Wow. I started writing this on Friday and it’s Saturday… Oh, well! And it’s August! Sheesh! Where did the summer go? This weekend is the kick-off of Art Unraveled and Joanne is in town. I’m heading out to see her in a while. It seems like just a few weeks ago I was meeting Joanne

Catching up – Gifts and Drawings

I’ve been quiet the past few days, but not because of my health. I’ve been focused on sewing and painting for a gift I created for my mother-in-law as a Mother’s Day gift. I’ve had to keep it under wraps, because my MIL reads my blog regularly (*waves to mom*)! It’s to the left. It’s

Back at the sewing machine

I’ve spent the past few days doing some sewing. It’s so nice to just play with fabric, fiber, and to hear the soothing sound of my sewing machine! I’ve been working, particularly, on a project for a friend. I made her a tote bag (right). I created the base with free motion stitching and then

‘Tis the season, right? Well, I had my treatment on Monday. I was pretty sick during it and the IV had to be reinserted twice, so it was not my favorite day. And, though it took longer for me to get through it, I had the pleasure of Angie’s company for a couple of hours.

Gifts: Finished Totes

Published on December 11, 2007, by in art, fabric, sewing.

I mentioned in my last post that I was working on some arty totes for the nurses at my husband’s practice who take care of me during my monthly treatments. After seeing them in process, my husband asked if I’d make one for the free clinic nurse manager. (Click on them to see larger images!)

Prescott, AZ Girls’ Weekend

Late yesterday I returned from a lovely trip with Angie. We went away for our first (of what we expect to be many!) girls’ weekend. Prescott is about 90 miles north of Phoenix. It’s a fairly easy drive and there’s some great views. Before we got on the road, I pulled a bag out of

Now for something else..

Published on August 30, 2007, by in art, fabric, life, pouches, sewing.

Well, I couldn’t just do my errands. I needed to do some art to calm my nerves about this weekend’s opening. I didn’t think I’d be nervous, but I am. When I’m nervous, I do art. Today, that meant sewing. I took some of the pouches I had ready to sew and I finished those
