I'm Still Here

Yep, I'm still around. I'm looking for a new place to put my longarm machine. I think I may have a place but another place has come up too so I'll be looking at that one. It's going to be a bit crazy for the next two weeks while I make a decision and get everything moved and set up.

This is my new adventure. A friend helped me out when I got the machine and allowed me to set it up in his home. Now he's selling and I've got to move on. At first it was sad but now, it's quite all right. The Universe is continually moving to align itself with things that I'm supposed to go through. And now is the time to spread my wings and fly. I can't believe that next month, I would have had my longarm for a year. Crazy how time flies and now it's time for me to start having some fun. I'm behind on my faces but I will catch up. Here are two I did a few days ago.

I also have two quilts to work on, so I'll be busy with those and packing things up. I will work better on my postings.

7 & 8

Here are faces I did two days ago and just now posting. I will be doing two more before the day is out.

I can't believe I'm keeping up with something. I guess I've found the right size for doing this challenge and I can get two faces done at a time. The month is still early though.

Keeping up with Faces

Okay, I did two faces today in order to keep up. Something weird happened to me and I decided that I was better than the incident and that I was going to get busy. So here are my faces.

The blue one is for how I was feeling yesterday. It was a sucky day. But... I shall persevere and keep on keeping on. The green one is one continuous line and both are done with color pencil.

I made progress on my Bargello quilt. I'm doing the wall hanging just to see how the thing is done. But I can continue on to make it a bit longer so it will turn into a throw. The backing is flannel. I'm finally excited about this project.

And here is a job on the longarm frame. So far so good for the end of the week. Time to continue to find my happy and create like nobody's business.

Rocky Start

I was off to a rocky start. Yes, I know, only three days in. Little voices of self-doubt were trying to creep in because life happens. Anyway, I got my second face done for 29 Faces. I make no promises of finishing. The weather sucks. 90 degrees and very humid. Working on staying positive in the fact that autumn is coming along with cooler temps.

I have no idea where I'm going with these faces. I'm just going to do them. The first two I've used watercolor pencils. I would like to be able to blend better. I think I know what to do now. Layers before adding the water.

I will finish longarming a quilt today. Can't show it because it's a gift. I did pull fabric for two more wallets, one is a gift. I really need to get back to my Bargello quilt top. I've given up on the garden. I will have to prep the soil this fall so there will be more nutrients in it next spring for planting. I will most definitely plan better for next year. So I guess I better get going. Seeing that there will be a lot of things I work on that I can't show because they are gifts. Hmmm...

Hello September

A brand new month and it's close to 90 degrees and humid. Gah! Summer is just hanging on and feeling a little punky. I just keep thinking about the cooler temps that are coming. I went to my Finish It challenge meeting and showed my black and white quilt top. They liked it. Now I've got to get it on the frame. The rest of the day has been a  no go. Just couldn't get my motor running but I did manage to do something for 29 Faces. Draw, sketch, paint, sculpt a face for 29 days. Usually it happens in February but there's one going on now. That's fine. I need something else to do in my day as a break. I used Derwent Watercolor Pencils. I think I'll try another with them. Maybe more blending first, then the water.

She's summer turning into autumn.

I've also started my next Sashiko piece. It's coming along quite slowly. I have a slight idea of what to do with them once I get the last design done. I think there's one more kit.

Still February

Working hard to get back in the groove of blogging. It's a way to get my feelings, ideas, and dreams out of my head and into the world. ...
