I saw this piece at Artists & Craftsman Supply (981 King Street,Charleston). It's on the third floor of the repurposed church. If you're in the area, drop by. They do their best to help you find the perfect 'whatever' you might be looking for. There is a stair lift for anyone that can't maneuver steps, and entry is on ground level. Parking is a bit tricky, so if there is a convenient spot on the street, I'd grab it.
I came home with a few 'ingredients' for testing out some of the ideas that are percolating for the 'YOUR CREATIVE YEAR' journal project. It will be a Follow Along that's coming in 2018. Plans are underway for this once a month project, idea, tutorial, prompt, etc etc etc. If you want to partake, the easiest way is to follow this blog. Enter your email in the FOLLOW ME bar at the top right side of this page. Then confirm by responding to the email you will receive from Blogger. You won't miss a post, and I'm not into posting every day so I won't be filling your inbox.
Quilts for Houston is underway. Over 50 people have joined me since Wednesday evening at 8:30 when I put the first post up on Facebook about the idea. Quilt tops are already coming into be layered with backing and batting for the longarm machine. Once quilted together, they will go to volunteers for bindings to be attached. I'll be sending my Sand in My Shoes quilt to Houston. At present all sizes are accepted, but we're asking for 36"x48". This size will bring comfort to a child and the adult that holds the child!
September 3 - a day to thank God for our blessings, and we have so many to be thankful for!
It's now September 30th, where did the last 27 days go???? Here's a quick over view with a few pictures from along the way.
And Melinda getting ready to take some down to Florida. Harvey and Irma were two miserable hurricanes that left lots of devastation in their path. We want folks to know that 'WE CARE'.
Then off to Door County for a bit of 'us time'.
And more eating,,,,
Then we traveled the rest of the way home, tired but content to have seen some of our children and a few friends. There is never enough time to see everyone we want to, and this time we needed some 'down time' to be ready for all of what had to take place this week after returning.
The quilts are pouring in, my workshop for October is coming to it's time, and honestly, my house is not a very tidy place right now. Not to fret, a few minutes each day, in each area of messiness, and it'll be fine by,,, Christmas??? Probably a lot sooner than that, but I've got quilts to quilt, rugs to hook, and pictures to weave. No one is going to want a picture of my clean house, but something I create?, ah yes, that's my legacy! So, with that being said,
Let's Create Today,,,,
