                                                             ....slow journaling.....

Update on my Blogger Quilt


      So, here is the update of where I am on my Blogger BOM.  I got the sashing done...then I needed to decide how to set the quilt.  I am a huge Kaffe Fassett fan.....so I thought I would go scrappy all around the quilt.......hmmmm....I am feeling like the blocks are lost in all that color...........

....then I decided to go with yellow Kaffe to set the quilt.... better.....but, the room this quilt is going to hang in is lime green....and I think the yellow and lime green will just not work for me.......
                           .....then I decided to try PINK.....Yes!!!! I'm totally liking the pink!!!!
                                                                                   

 ....and here is the top on my lawn:):) I really like it. 
Now ...I'm off to work on the backing, layering, and quilting:):)

Thanks for dropping by
Much love- Sandie

Working on My Blogger's BOM


 Hello Blog land :):) I am still trying to kick some of my UFO's to the curb :):) Today I pulled out my Blogger's BOM...to get it ready for sashing and piecing. I stuck them all up on my board to figure out how??? I wanted to piece them together....and decided to put them on point...I love quilts that are on point.
                                                                                  
          I LOVE this black and green polka-dot from the Kaffe Fassett line!!! Perfect for sashing!!!
                                               ....now, cornerstones or straight sash?????
                                                                                
Yep....I definitely like the cornerstones a lot!!!!

I didn't have enough blocks for this lay out...I was one block short....so, one of my favorite Kaffe's became the center of this quilt:))

.....and I'm decided to show you that I can never seem to quilt just one quilt at a time!!!! I always have at least two quilts I'm sewing at the same time.

These little baskets made it into the mix of my sewing the BOM together today!! So, when I am done sewing this top together...these little blocks will be done , and any other project I want to throw in the mix:):)   That's me...always the multitasking queen :):)

Well, that is what I was up to today!!!
Hope ya'll had a great creative day:):)
Much love- Sandie

A Peek Into My Art Journals :):)


I thought I would show you some of my journal pages..... above is a doodle I did watching TV. Then I used watercolors to make it bright.

                                  In my 21 Secrets class I did a self portrait journal spread.....
                                                                                 
                                      ...here is the full spread. The dots are my thumb prints:):)

I got some scraps from my friend in Denmark...Pia Diem. I took her scraps and made this journal page:):)
 ...and then my friend from down under...sent me scraps from her desk...and I made this journal page with those left over scraps:):)
This is what I started with .... next I will add color!!
Ta-Da....The doodle was also Jane's..... I used to make this page with all the scraps.

Hope you all have enjoyed a climpse into my art journals:):)
Much love - Sandie

A New Canvas :):)

I decided to make myself a new art piece for my studio. I love this saying... 
Take Pride In How Far You Have Come...
And Have Faith In How Far You Can Go!!
I used lots of layers ...paper, paints, spray inks, molding paste, and glitter.
I used my baby photo:) I was 7 months old in this photo. 
I was such a HAPPY BABY :):)
 I found the lime green frame at Sweet Salvage. I have had it for a while...and finally found a piece I can use it with:):) Very happy with the results:):):)

Sorry..I haven't been around last week...I was hit hard with a super bad cold!!!!
I am doing much better now...and completely on the mend:):)

Hope ya'll have a great week
Much Love- Sandie
