Well i have been making and painting and sewing and quilting and taking some photos when i make some progress. The excess humidity has rendered me lazy and lethargic and prone to wishing for naps for sometime. i finally am getting close to the finish of a mango inspired quilt, a little quiltie!
i have had the blocks pinned to a design board for most of the year.if you have visited this blog before you might recall i am a painter of bland vanilla colored cotton fabric, turning it in to ALL the colors of the rainbow and saving the scraps and bits from previous work.
scrape pile of possibilities....
sewing random pieces and strips into squares is soothing
yummy threads to sew with!
Bernina 830 Record hums along
waiting for paint to dry......
i painted mangoish color on white background fabric
for binding.in humid times it takes longer.
While waiting for paint to dry, made a few little guys,
i can use for pin cushions or just for fun.
(if you Google fabric pumpkin pin cushions you will find a ton of tuts.)
mine start with a circle of fabric.
Back in 1976
i had the fun of making this little slightly astigmatic pumpkin jack o lantern
from clay. I am thankful he has survived this long!
Voltive candles from the drugstore are his favorite food to burn.
Have a great pumpkin day!
Be well, Sonja
