Rainy Dayz Project, Planting Trees, & Sand Art
It has been a rainy week so I decided to try out the pattern that my sister, Jenny designed for Studios magazine.
I used this sewing mat project to practice my free motion quilting.
Make sure you get a good close-up look at the button I found. I couldn't believe that the feathers on the button and the colors were a perfect match. I didn't plan it that way.
I did sew Velcro at the top of the pockets on the inside so I would not lose any sewing notions while going to a class. This pattern was really fun to put together and a practical tool when space is at a premium in a sewing class room. I'm also planning on using it in my sewing studio.
It has been too wet to plant the fields. Dean had to plant something so he planted trees!
This time of year Dean is getting the farm machinery ready for spring planting. Hopefully, we will have some dry warm weather so we can get our field planting started.
It's been cold here, but the spring flowers are blooming. My mind tells me its spring, but my body says it still cold outside.
I was going to post more in the International Quilt Show, but decided to share a very special artist from my corner of the world. His name is Roger Powell. He does a sand sculpture during the Easter season. His work is really a true work of art.
Hope you all have a safe and Happy Easter!
