Between starting the horse and turning off my lights, my very good friend, Carol R. came over to play for a while. We watched a few quilting videos and then she got out her box of "toys". What a great time!
Here's the first thing we tried:
|Sharpie and Alcohol art|
The next project was using the same tools, just on a grander scale and with a little added card stock for transfer of the design.
|A little faded|
The newsletter is out and I'm already thinking about the next one. I remember these days from past experiences with other newsletters. Must be the [fantasy] writer in me. I'll work on my art piece some more today and hopefully get that finished up. I have to watch a class on-line before doing the one of Lily.
Tomorrow we head to Chicago for the International Quilt Festival!!!! So excited!!! Since mom is actually going with us (really, she is) perhaps I can talk her into chipping in for the new sewing machine for my birthday/Christmas/cell phone bill/contribution towards Chad's housewarming quilt part I won't be able to cover. It depends on her mood and whether we can drum up a good deal. Crossing the fingers on this end for all the sewing machine planets to align tomorrow. :-)
