Merry Christmas

This Quilted Art Nativity Sold last Christmas.
Created when I was part of a Miniature Quilt Group as a monthly
challenge to paper piece one section a month.  
My style is more improvisational now
but this composition is still special to me.

Merry Christmas Grandkids!

This year's hand made gift from me to each of my grandkids
is a Child & Nana Journal. 
The idea is to write in their personal journal and maybe  add some art
and give it to them. Then they can write a note and maybe add some art
and give it back to me. And on it goes.
These 2 journals traveled to Berlin which makes this concept a bit challenging.
I plan to write my note, and maybe add some art and mail it in
a regualr envelope to Berlin and the boys can glue it into their journals.
Them they can send me photos of what they write to me.  
Sounds like a fun adventure this year!

Advent Candle Holder From Dad

 Every Christmas for several years when he was alive, my Dad
would create something useful for each of us 7 "kids".
I use this candle holder he fashioned from
chair railing to celebrate Advent.
I am thankful for the creative heritage from my Dad.

Buttoned Up Blue Christmas Tree

Artists appreciate hand made art. 
I wish I had taken a photo of the original fabric 
of this Christmas Tree that I purchased a few years ago.
I really liked the idea even though it was an odd color of green
with gold buttons. I prefer to decorate with silver and blue.
I decided to refashion the tree using the old shape as my pattern.
Now it's quilted from blue batik fabric, white buttons,
 wood repainted black and topped with a silver bow.
Ahh, it's ready for Christmas!

2017 Have a HeART for Big Brothers Big Sisters

I had never heard of 
Have a HeART forBig Brothers Big Sisters
until last year.  And I quickly created a Quilted Art HeART
to donate for the Valentine's Day Fund Raiser event. 
This year I've started a bit early and am 
creating one very similar that will also be mounted 
on a black 10 inch X 10 in Cradle Board. 
Hand embroidery and unique buttons to be added. 
Who wants to join and create a piece as well?

Sorting Buttons

I've been sorting 3 stuffed gallon sized zipper bags of
buttons for a friend.
 It's a bit tedious but fun
to see so many unique buttons.

Neo Natal Knitted Preemie Hat Pattern & Tutorial

As the weather cools, I find knitting a tiny Preemie Hat

along with their family.  
Here's my
I'd enjoy seeing a photo one one you knit too.

Rocks In First - "Simple Balance"

Aqua Blue Modern  Art Quilt Wall   Hanging  |'Simple Balance"
As is my habit, I listen to books on CD in my car.  
 and currently I'm listening to One Life Solution by Dr. Henry Cloud.
A phrase he build on is "Put the rocks in first" when explaining
to purposefully choose our priorities. 
It reminded me of this piece "Simple Balance". A good reminder 
for this Christmas season.
