Little Stuff

Gosh it's been a long time since I posted! I've gone to California (to attended classes at Empty Spools Seminars in beautiful Pacific Grove), Las Vegas, come home, planned my next few trips ... and not posted a thing.  I had visions of catching up, writing about all I'd done - nah, it's probably not gonna happen. So - I'll just pick up right here.

The Pacific was anything but peacful on this day. Very crashy waves!

Oh, Big Sur - you had me from hello!

I saw this mural on a wall in the Mission District in San Francisco. It screams "quilt" to me.

I've been playing with some small stuff. Here's my piece (not yet quilted) from Sue Benner's class. That class was great! If you like different stuff and have the opportunity, take a class from her.

Here's a bit of my improv piecing done in Rayna Gillman's class. More fun stuff! 

  No, not mug rugs - small art pieces. (OK mug rugs if you want, but why not small art to add just a dot of color to a dull spot on your wall?)

Here are a few more, waiting to be made whole
All of these are from the scrap pile.

I attended a weekend Retreat at Cinnamon's Quilt Shop. We did a quick (and I mean QUICK) make it-take it zip bag. I made these from uphostery samples. For context, the one on top has a 6" zipper.

And that's what I've been up to the last 3 months!  Thanks for stopping by!
