I'm gong to leave this reminder up to subscribe again on the side and since there are a couple blogs coming,we should know shortly if everyone is getting what they should.
Creative Projects that is.
On the finished side, I spent last week sewing and ended up with a table runner, patriotic napkins, coasters, and a pile of re-usable paper towels like the two shown here. Not sure if I'll use these for the patio or bring them to the inside table. I also worked on a couple of the wood blocks I pan to use for the wall sculpture, and am not sure they are exactly what I want (If not I'll sand and redo since wood is going up and I'm not sure where I would get reclaimed blocks or even cut them). I'm using the quilt with all the modern quilt blocks for the design inspiration but not the colors.
As far as in the middle, rather than a Pinterest challenge I'm doing an Etsy one. I saw this mini wood barn quilt and tried to redo it (smaller, shelf sized and in bright colors) as seen above. I don't feel I made enough lines so I'm going to redo with six lines going the long way and four on the two short sides and add a bow. I also saw these cute little houses and am using them for inspiration but have a completely different painting plan. I love the idea of tiered trays or try decor but I am very much NOT a modern farmhouse style gal (with apologies for those who are. So I'm making some mini pillows and stuff for that, and a front door wreath from and old picture frame that may or may not come out. We'll see after the weekend. Also the gray modern quilt with all the bright colors should up for viewing by next week.
I've opened up a selling page but my strategy is to make what I like, put some thing for sale and as for the rest, just can "I can make this for you in any color you like", or something like that!

And because I always have way more ideas than I will every make and sometimes need to let things "marinate" for awhile. I continue to look at these fabrics (yes, more pictures of Alice) while I decide what to make and how to get two quilts (not necessarily the same size) out of these fabrics. And, since I must make a pride quilt this month, I decided I could use the rest of my scraps and do something like this with maybe four different squares for a wall quilt and either paint or iron on fabric letters so the word Ally is the middle. Wish me luck!
A few of you have asked about my day dresses. Since I just did a quick wash and hung some on the door to get the wrinkles out, I figured I would share a few and also some current ones that are similar. I really dont only own navy and pink I have green and yellow as well. Just how this picture happened! I dont really wear house dresses because once I'm dressed for the day I dont change unless I'm swimming or working out (I can do chair aerobics in dresses), but I probably will not wear the shorter pink one very far afield. The stripe maxi came from somewhere I don't know but I am thinking Catherine's or Kohl's possibly. The pink floral from Walmart, the blue floral from Kohl's, and the two tie die from Lane Bryant. Every year they do the same dress in different colors. This year's is yellow and I'll probably get it. Price range from twenty to thirty five dollars (cause as we all know nothing at Kohl's is every full price!!)
