So, WHAT IS ON YOUR WORKDESK WEDNESDAY?
Well as you can see Honey cat is in charge on my desk this Wednesday. Not much going on so he is guarding it for safe keeping and holding down the papers in case a tornado were to pass through any minute now!
I did get some wonderful little postage art card in the mail this past week. In an online group I am in, we were "stamp"ing on little art cards to make a booklet with. We could use one or more postage stamps on the face of our work. These are some of what I traded. Note on the bottom left, I am again using disgarded items. The tassles on the hat are actually pencil shavings glued on.
Here are what I had gotten back in the trade.
Steering away from the desk, you are getting another bit of a tour this week, as we must go through my kitchen to see what else I have been working on this week. In the far corner beyond the fridge is where the computer is where we had last been. It's a shame that it separates my long arm area. I keep thinking we should gut out the kitchen, make it all work area and put in a vending machine and trash can! Sounds like a plan to me! Who likes to clean the kitchen anyway? My sink is in the center island. although it seemed cool when we got the house 11 years ago, I often thought it sure would make for a nice cutting table and that sink is certainly in the way for that!
One thing that I do have is lots of cupboards and cabinets. Also lots of collectable junk! lol I collected lots of copper when we lived over seas along with other antique things. I even have a propeller off of my dad's airplane that he made. Yup, it's a real propeller that he built for one of his one seater experimental air craft. It's one of my favorite found memories I have of him that he hand carved. You can see it in the far corner of the past photo. I sure miss my dad, he was so wonderful with building things.
I do have a new toy in my kitchen! I use to have a two handled faucet and hated it! We had to have the plumber come in to do other work so had the single lever installed. I am so thrilled and the cats are facinated (or should I say faucetnated?)
Bisky is the first to try out the new contraption!
o.k. so I got a little side tracked. I tell you, the kitchen is just in the way. Too many temptations past the refrigerator. lol Anyway, at the end of the kitchen, you can see where my long arm machine is. Yup, it was the dining room. As you see, I have a quilt on the machine that I had been working on. I am so excited to see it when I get it off of the machine.
It has been on the machine for the past three days and I am so close to being done! I hope to have this off within the next hour to post, so this will remain in my draft folder for the moment before I hit publish.
O.K. finally got it finished in time for today! Yippie!!! Here's a little teaser of the corner.
I am photographing this while on my machine so you aren't quite seeing it all. Can you tell I am a fan of feathers? I love it when a customer lets me have my way with it:) This is Lacine's beauty.
Look at all of her flower varieties!
Each corner also has a different block
I shall have to wait until my hubby comes home from work to help me get a full shot of the quilt. It's a difficult task when the quilts get so large. Even to photograph them on the clothes line doesn't quite cut it. I will insert it yet onto this post when it is ready.
In the mean time, I also finished the other quilt that I had on the machine last week. Sorry didn't get a great shot as I didn't have good lighting that day.
I also finished 2 other quilts that are Lacine's. This was the smallest one that quilted up very quickly.
Then she had this stunning red, black and white quilt.
Don't you just love the sashing?
Well, that's all of the eye candy for this week. I will take a breather, regroup and get another quilt on the machine this week. In the mean time, if you are starved for more. You can check out my website for more great pieces.
