The Jackets are DONE!

(Fleece jackets for Autumn and Prairie)

From the lack of postings on my blog you might think that I have just been watching soaps and eating Bon Bons, well not true. I have been working on some new projects but my guilty conscious kept me from sharing. I had one project that was on the top of the To Do list but I was not working on it. I was working on other projects, but just kept everything to myself. Well, the jackets are in the mail, so now I can share what I have been working on.

I have had two skelton fabric panels for YEARS and have done nothing with them. A few weeks ago one of my sewing students was going through the Halloween fabric and asked if she could make the skelton. I said yes and then I decided that I should make the other one to hang on my studio door. It’s complete. The skelton even glows in the dark, but not for a picture (I tried).

Here are a couple of other easy Halloween projects I made to hang in my studio.

Tom is in the process of redoing the train board in a winter scene. We are planning on a couple of train days in December. We will invite children (and their parents) over for a fun “Polar Express” adventure. As I was thinking about this, I decided that my colorful flower wallhanging that is on the living room wall just was not quite the mood that we wanted to set, so I started working on this Winter quilt. It is from a McCall’s pattern (that I have had for years). I am sure it will look much neater when all the details are completed.

In November I am going to a guild in Pennsylvania to present a Hands-on Demo on the folded hexagon. I have this idea for a growth chart with folded fabric for the sunflower. (It is hard to tell from this picture.) I want to complete this project so I can take it with me on that day as another example of how the fabric folding can be used.

The Pelham Art Center holds an annual fund raiser each year. They ask the different artists to donate a piece to be auctioned off (either live or silent). This is the quilt that I am working on for this event. This really has to be finished very soon. The event is Nov. 3. This quilt makes me think of Argyle socks, so I think I will name it “Argyle”.

I think the embellishment is what makes this quilt look cool.

The last thing that I have worked on does not have much to show for now, but hopefully in the Spring. I dug up all the old Summer flowers and planted some Spring bulbs. I have been wanting to do this for years. I usually still have the bulbs around in December and the ground is frozen solid – to late again! Well, this year it’s done and it feels GREAT!
