Creative Week(ness)

I spent the week tied to my studio creating stuff each day either for trade or for gifts. I have hand dyed, printed and or painted most of the fabrics used.

Funny how I love Sept. and Oct. and find myself indoors, but at least it was doing things that I love. The one thing that spoils it all is that I have to regroup and have to clean up the studio and face the reality that the house is getting neglected. I also need to get another customer quilt on the machine, sigh, the magic was fun while it lasted.









I made the one with the guitar for my cousin who is a musician. She has a music CD out, so she may use it for business cards, but can also be used for ID, CC, etc. for hands free shopping with it hanging around your neck.


As you can see, the guitar "pick" is pulled and it reveals the message I wanted to send to her. I didn't photograph the back before I sent it to her, but what I did was add an extra half pocket on the back side.





(The original pattern was by my friend Norma Jean Brevik from a magic card trick. I have taken on a new twist for their design and loved how they turned out.)

These are gorgeous - love the colors, well everything about them. I know what you mean about wanting to be outside to enjoy the weather and wanting to do something creative inside at the same time. I've been feeling like that this weekend.

Wanda, what are these? They are lovely!
Happy that NormaJean gave you an A+. I would have too. :)

Oops, going back to edit. Norma, they are card holders to hang around your neck, to put your ID, CC, or business cards in. Great if you don't want to carry much around especially when you go to shows or hands free shopping:)

These are lovely. You are so creative. What a great thing to take shopping or to the ballgame with id and credit card. I need one with baseball on it. We still go to the Diamondback games even though they are in last place.
