Portraits

For our anniversary this year (22), we went camping at Moonshine Lake. My lovely friend Corry from Corry Heinricks-Photography lives near there so she met us at the park to do some portraits. I wanted to share just a few of the wonderful shots she took.








We are off on holidays on Thursday so talk to you again in a few weeks!

Oopsy Daisy

Here is an update on the progress of the Oopsy Daisy quilt,
5 blocks get cut from each strip set, to give you 70 blocks.
See those triangles shapes on the centre left and right of this chopped up bit? You piece 10 of those together to cut your last 10 blocks. A bit of a crazy tangle of dangly bits!



here are all 80 blocks up on the wall waiting to be pieced, and they are all now on the bias! But here it will stay for a bit while I work on some other projects.



Here is my whimsy girl all finished, lots of room for artist growth here but I sure enjoy the process and the COLOUR!!!


 Thanks for visiting and have a great week!

We're having a heat wave!

And hiding in my basement playroom is what I do to beat the heat. (I have no idea why this line is highlighted so I don't know how to fix it!)

Here a few things I have been working on:

 Strips sets built for the Oopsy Daisy quilt I am making for a class sample. It is from the StrataVarious Quilts book.



 A fun little art girl, that is still a work in progress.


A practice in using my pan pastels


 This one I did not build in my basement but went to the glass fusion studio to play last night. It is a new obsession and I cannot wait to see this one finished. Pretty proud that the flowers are from my own sketch! It is not the best pic as it is from my phone but I will share the finished product after it is all fired and ready to come home!


Hope are all having a wonderfully creative summer!
