Happy Thanksgiving!

Happy Thanksgiving everyone. We have so much to be thankful for. I am particularly thankful for family and friends. I am also thankful for art and those who share their wonderful talents so that we all can enhance our artful journey. Blessings to all.

Still sewing...

Still sewing, making great crafts, that may end up as holiday gifts, on my Etsy shop, or as a gift to myself...

I am also still working on making backgrounds. Here are a few of the ones I have done so far..

Decided to take a break from sewing today to make a few backgrounds. Here is one of them. Fun times.

Finally back to work

It's been a while since I have done any work in the sewing part of my studio. I have spent most of the summer making dolls or taking classes, then once the iMac arrived, I have been playing and learning about my wonderful new toy. I was told about a site that offer great tutorials on how to thrive in the Mac environment. The site is wonderful and offers tutorials on all sorts of programs for computers, but i digress...
A friend asked me to sell a few items at her churches bizarre this weekend, and of course I panicked. I spent my summer learning and not really making art. Luckily I have a few things that I can take with me, but i thought I should spend some time making a few things as well. Here are three of the little bags/purses I made in the last day or so. I love the zippers.

Fall in Maryland.

Although the fall of the year can be dreary, I love the colors. Great color pallet for my next art adventure.
