Hey girls! I've been working like a beaver on my quilt. Yesterday I sewed the strips together and today I hand stitched the back seams on 3 of them - still have 4 more to go and then I can quilt all the backgrounds around the flowers. That would be all 48 blocks!

Oh, and I put a couple of pics on my blog - not the whole quilt, just a bit of it.

I need to figure out some supplies for my latest adventure in metal embossing. I know that I enjoy it enough (with my whoppin' two projects that I've done! hehe) to invest in a few more tools. I also want to get some colored metal that you can sand to get a contrast....hmmmm......I think I deserve something new just because!! LOL

Considering that just a month ago I was still doing the applique, yes, it is progressing.

And while I was searching for that iron, I also discovered some other quilt blocks. I know that I have at least 2 more quilts that the top is all pieced and need to be either tied or quilted. And another 2 twin quilts that are same/similar scrappy quilts (dresden plate pattern) that only have the borders to finish (I think).

But I am really enjoying quilting again.

What do you do with all your quilts? Do you give them to family members to treasure? (I may have asked this before, but I suffer from chronic mommy mush brain and don't remember squat!!)

I think it's great that your are enjoying your quilts.....I think creating in different forms just makes the mojo that much better

Just got done watching my Taco Tuesday video (TenSecondStudios...metal embossing!)....I think that I'm going to be seeing a lot more stuff with metal on it in my house...just need to place an order
Actually, I am going to order the cross kit that they have. I collect crosses and think it would be pretty cool to have one that I made! (or two, three....hehe)

OI!! I could easily spend over $150 in just some basic tools for the embossing (ok...that isn't just basic tools...that is several sets of different wheels, finishing set, refining tools, etc, etc.....)

I like your new picture, Starla. Most of my quilts are around the house, but I have made some as gifts. Those are usually just tied and pretty easy piecing. I've done a bunch of baby quilts as shower gifts. The baby quilts usually only take a couple of days to make.

Thanks on the pic....I REALLY hate pictures of myself....hard to ignore reality! snort

We have a family friend who made both boys a baby quilt for their car seats. Perfect for just tucking in around them. Have them safely packed now. Those quilts had to be one of my favorite and useful gifts!

You girls planning on participating in VSN? I just looked at the first two challenges and my mojo went screaming out of the room (the first I've seen of her in the last few days)...don't know if I will be able to find her now!!
going out to dinner soon with the IL's....maybe I'll be inspired to create something just for the heck of it.....that would be something new

I did the first one - the card sketch. Was having a hard time figuring out what to do for the sweater challenge, and I have NOTHING to use for the marble one. So we'll see about the rest of the challenges. I think my first one turned out pretty good, though.....

I have only lookd a the first three, but I have some friends coming over tomorrow to stamp with me, so i'm hoping maybe they will want to play along. But they are both new stampers, so it may not be worth it to try and get my own challenge cards done. we'll see.....

Got the last one done... before the family came home. Tomorrow will be harder to get stamping done, because I have too many interruptions. We'll see.

Well you both got me beat. My mojo is hiding GOOD. It's raining out. Perfect excuse to just stamp. BUT have nothing in my head. Maybe I just need to create something just for the creating instead of making something for a challenge....

I think I could probably come up with something for the white/blue challenge. Maybe even the all white challenge...but all that comes to mind off hand is snowflakes. I'm DONE with snowflakes....need to think of something else!!

I was determined to play last night, but I really had to force myself to not overthink everything. I can go back and look at some of the cards and see places that could be done differently and better, but 45 minutes just doesn't give me that freedom. I guess that's why my cardmaking takes so long, because I don't just throw stuff together. I need to try something, then something else... until I'm really pleased with it. I'm not real happy with the first card I did and the last one would look much better with a larger fan of spirelli, but... it is what it is for now. I will probably use the spirelli card in a technique class - just fix it up.

I'm hoping to get some playing time in again today, but it's harder with the family all home.

I made real cinnamon rolls for breakfast - YUM! Used a fast pizza dough recipe and went from there. And then I ate too much.

Yeah, I don't know if I could stick to a 45 min time limit either....I over think everything too!!
Cinnamon rolls....yummmm!! That beats the box of cereal that I served! LOL!! BUT! I do have my second load of laundry going, so that has to count for something, right?

I really do want to stamp today, but in all honesty, I think my mojo went hiding because deep down, I know that I really should start tackling my house....it's getting to the place that "disgusting" comes to my mind....maybe I'd be able to create (somewhat guilt free) if I did a bit of cleaning first....ICK!!!!

What kind of tools do you use for that? Is there something that you already have that you can substitute?

There are different decorative wheels, erasers, different style of stylus and brushes. There are also molds that you can use (you can use embossing folders too). Plus colored metals that you can sand so that the aluminum (sp?) core shows thru. Here are a few of the tools and such

http://bonniesbest.com/ten_seconds.htm

I have a very basic set of 4 tools, but you need different sizes of tools for more or less detailed work

Holy shmoly! Gorgeous stuff, but I am NOT going there! I do NOT need to get into that! I think I'll stick with aluminum foil glued to chipboard and cuttled!

Isn't is gorgeous!! I absolutely love the look!! My house decor is more of a spanish look and embossed metal is PERECT for it....I'd like to get good enough to do a frame around my bathroom mirror.....and to do a cross (or two).....we'll see...

I bought this book Metal Embossing Workshop by Magdalena S. Muldoon. Has patterns for frames, boxes, scissor holder, serving tray etc. Incredible detailed stuff. Just goregous. I don't see myself doing that fine of detailed stuff all the time. I want to do some funky, fun stuff too. PLUS I like the look of it on cards. I did another embossed metal piece and IRL it has a very elegant look to it (despite my lacking skills in going around round borders! )

Have a couple of ideas floating in my head...but need the supplies. I just need to bite the bullet and order some stuff. I know that I will use it....

Got 4 more VSN cards done today, plus the IC. I had to quit, 'cause the Mr. wanted the lights out. I won't do them all, but there are a couple more that I'd like to get done. Maybe tomorrow.

Good for you!! I got two of the three bathrooms cleaned, all but one last load of laundry done (does this count for ANYTHING?!). Hoping to do some playing today...have no immediate ideas brewing, but maybe something will hit me over the head

oh starla...come clean my house. I have a release this week...and nothing made for it! haha.

And...to report on my solo today in church...it went marvelously well!

I lucked out and when I got to church, there were only 2 couples in the pews. So I played through the piece once before the meeting began. Then, when it was my turn, I calmly walked to the piano, played it, walked back to the pew...no jitters, no fumbles. I probably didn't do the "loud/soft" super well...but hey...no fumbles. That's the biggest thing! haha

I lucked out and when I got to church, there were only 2 couples in the pews. So I played through the piece once before the meeting began. Then, when it was my turn, I calmly walked to the piano, played it, walked back to the pew...no jitters, no fumbles. I probably didn't do the "loud/soft" super well...but hey...no fumbles. That's the biggest thing! haha
Unfortunately, those two bathrooms are the ONLY things that got cleaned...I have the rest of the house to go!!

Good job on the solo....I always FREAKED on recitals/solos....


DH just came home with a new BBQ. I think this justifys me ordering some new toys too!!

Morning, ladies. Mostly sunny here this morning, although that may change with some snow flurries coming later. But the temp. is only mid-20's.

Yesterday morning I heard a robin singing. It's a bit early - they don't usually come back until about March 13th. And the ground is still mostly snow-covered, so he's gonna have a hard time finding anything to eat. Crazy bird.

I'm hoping to do some more VSN challenges today. Didn't stamp at all yesterday.

I just finished another vsn card. I think maybe I'll quit with that. I have to start thinking about what we're going to make in my classes this month. I may incorporate at least a form of a few of the cards I did for vsn. Got a couple of good ones for my technique class.
