On the road again....

Seems like I've been gone forever, and it has been quite a while..... I've been traveling and breaking bones, and having mechanical difficulties for months. So, new laptop, wonderful brand new sewing machine, and fingers working again! Tomorrow I'll post my recent projects, especially the fabric collage I'm working on. I took a class from Mary Ellen at Ginger's in Upland and pushed past the fear of not following the rules.

Cherry Delight Quilt Kit

Okay, I take it all back... everything I ever said, or didn't say, about "those people" who buy premade kits and copy designer work instead of thinking for themselves and doing something original.
I was just at Joanna's Fresh Figs and she has designed the sweetest, darlingest, most adorable, I-want-to-snuggle-in-it-quilt I've ever seen. I'm gonna make it. Soon. Not now, but soon.

Yard sale failure

Well, I tried, folks. I was gonna offer my beautiful silver Lincoln LS next, but with no takers on my free offerings, I'm sure that would be a waste too.
So, my sister in Upland will receive about 10 of the very big plastic tubs of crafting tools and paint and 2 sewing machines. My other sister has stepped forward for some of my gorgeous hand-painted furniture. My son is driving his truck 12 hours each way to collect some very large mirrors and antique furniture. I still have more than a dozen large art pieces to find a loving home for. And a marvelous walnut newspaper desk thought to have belonged to John Steinbeck.

And a little black dog.

art and craft magazines giveaway

featuring Classic quilted vests, a detailed how to. Out of view some Somerset studio mags, I think I have 8 or nine.

giveaway Plastic Gothic Garden Frame

If you lift the monitor and tilt it 90 degrees to the right, you'll find a delightful garden accessory, which I dug out of a dumpster in Bull Head City several years ago. It's actually much less pretty than it appears in my point and shoot soft focus. If it was really this cute, I'd probably keep it. I'm sure it would be, however, the perfect addition to your yard. Love, Sam
