It's finally done

It seems like i've been working on this quilt forever. Maybe it's just because i have either been too busy or too tired to even look at it for the past few weeks. Anyways for anyone who was at the last quilt till you wilt then this is what i was working on. I'm really happy with how it turned out because when i started i couldn't help but to think " what the heck am i doing with this, it will look horrible!" but then again i do that with most of my stuff...

ceramics

So Jenny and I have been working at the kelley shop for the last couple of weeks. We have been studying under the great instructor, edeltraut (i think i spelled that wrong, sorry) and have been having alot of fun. I just thought I would show a little of what we have done (you will have to decide for yourselves whose is whose...)

Apron

So i finally created my new apron. yay!!! so here it is:
Side 1:



Side 2:





And something really really cool happened to me yesterday. I was in one of my not so lovely moods and feeling really tired because i started school again this week. So after cutting some fabric for a lady she thanked me and gave me a fused glass pin! She said that she wanted to thank me by giving me something she makes! I think it is the best thing ever and for the rest of the day i was in a good mood. So i now know it's true that one small act of kindness really can make a difference for someone.

Here is the pin! not so much of a good picture. So if you want to truly see it, just take a look at my apron when i wear it!

I'm no blogger

Okay Yes I KNOW! i'm a terrible blogger. But i'm sitting down tonight and writing a new post! YAY!!!! So i gave a sneak peek of this quilt and I have finally finished it. (who knew that being sick could make me so productive?) Here it is.... I really really like it even though it was a pain in the butt to make, but it really pops which is totally my style.



And this is a quilt i made from the Nest jellyroll that i had been eyeing ever since it "stepped foot" in the store. I'm really glad i did finally break down and buy because i adore the fabric! i used the pattern from the book Jelly Roll Quilts that is a really great book because , of course, it has a lot of pictures ( good for those who read something and think "HUH?" like i do).



Okay so thanks to all of those wonderful people out there who tell me everyday how many weeks it's been since my last post. Without you i probably would have stopped. what a shame.

Beads

So since i had the day off today because i'm currently carless, which turned out to be good because i'm sick today and wouldn't have been able to come in anyways, i decided to finally get off the couch and make something. So i looked through what little glass i have left and realized that i have never really done anything with purple. I took all my purple glass as you can see below...



And i decided to make what i think is a really cool set of beads. The purple is really much prettier than the picture shows just to let you know. I think i should get a bigger and better camera.....hmmmm.

Long time no blog...

Okay i would first like to thank everyone who has dropped little hints as to the fact that i have not written a new blog entry in like...yes i know...forever! So here it finally is, and hopefully i will start posting things more often. I thought i would share with you my newest expensive hobby i have taken up. This first quilt is a Turning Twenty that i used our new line of fabric from K& Company with. I don't think i like it because i realized after i made it that it wasn't my style. Oh Well!



Next i have the quilt that i made for my bed. The pattern is from "Sew Hip" and i absolutely love it! Probably because it is well...my style.



Finally is the project i'm currently working on. It's the first block of four and i love how bold it is. If only the circle things weren't such a pain to make.




And YAY now nobody can say anything about me not blogging for at least a week. I hope.

Loverly Fishies

In honor of finishing my last week of classes tonight for term 4 at UMUC i decided to post my inbetween classes project. This is one of those started more than a year ago projects that never gets finished. I love to make things with fish on it so of course the bookshelf has alot... ALOT... of fish on it. So this week and next week i will bring it back out with my painting stuff and start working on it again.


Here is a close up of the pretty fishies. All of which i drew myself based on real fish from this book with like every fish in it from my snorkeling days in Okinawa.


I still haven't decided what to do on the sides of it so any help with ideas would be wonderful.

The Vase Rambling

At the request of Corinnea i decided to post my vase. One of the longest projects ever!!!! I hand built the vase using slabs of clay and then took more than a month to glaze it. I was unsure what the colors were going to do but i think i really like how they turned out. My favorite is the swirls on the side. I probably should have posted it sooner but i don't have the patience for the pictures to load! Anyways more to come later because i bought a whole tea set of bisque to glaze so that it matches my vase! Why i did that i don't know because i only like i think two types of tea. One of which i can only get in eqypt that i discovered while visiting there.

mushrooms, and owls, and flowers, OH MY

What could be a better way to start off a blog then with mushrooms that have owls sitting on them? Nothing! so here it is...



I decoupaged it with the cutest mushroom paper ever, and then used the cutest owl paper ever! The owl paper was even double sided, my pet peeve, and i managed not to get upset about not using the other side.
hmmm...maybe i shouldn't have posted this project first because it will make my other stuff look pathetic.
