So I've been busy with several things, some quilted pot shard pins for my quilt guild's Quilt Show coming up in October. They're collecting things for the gift shop and our sig (special interest group), The Art Quilters have done several things in addition to the pot shards to donate for the shop. The Go Figure project, and some random knitting, though I have just realized thatI need to knit Suleiman a coat for the cold weather.
If anyone has suggestions for a nice synthetic blend, I'm all ears. I'm SO done knitting dog coats out of wool for various reasons. I really want to knit him the Stegasaurus Coat that I did for Toby a couple of years ago, but I seriously don't think I'll get Anthony to go for it.
Here at Heal My Hands, we've also launched a new line of products that we created for Natural Soda. They are truly amazing, with delicious fragrances I created from essential oils and absolutes. I particularly love the Moisturizing Body Polish which fizzes as you rub it on. Incredible if I do say so myself. I'm pretty darn proud of us!
We've also launched a client website (albuqcookie) and have two new clients. Needless to say, I've been a bit wrapped up lately.
And now that I've typed redux, I can't actually remember if I posted my first fabric collage. Well, if it turns out I've only posted it to Flickr, I'll post if here tomorrow. I've finished another fabric collage and truthfully, I'm lovin' this. I think maybe I didn't get enough glue time as a kid or something, because cutting and pasting these bits of fabric and getting something to hang on the wall without picking up a single spool of thread just thrills me.
Though on this one, I did burn the poppies to get the fabric to curl, and I did use sand... but still, it was mostly glue. Cool, huh?
