Midnight Garden

Deadlines are great for getting projects done. I wasn’t very inspired by my latest project, so I procrastinated on quilting it. I like it now that it’s finished. Some white paint was added after the quilting was completed. And it was completed just in time to enter into a juried show.

Frames for my Latest Succulents

I've gotten Succulents VII & VIII in their new 8 x 10 frames. I think they look great. I will plan on doing some more smaller framed pieces.

Working with Scraps

Our Fast Friday Challenge theme this month is outer space. We are supposed to use unusual materials or embellishments. My plan is to follow the requirements for this challenge while making a piece to submit to a show asking for art made from scrap, recycled, or repurposed items. I got started a week late for the challenge, and haven’t been working all that fast, but deadline for entering the show is still a couple weeks away. I think I have a good start with repurposed old jeans, garment sewing scraps, and pattern cloth scraps.
