Snowing again…..

It is snowing again here in Michigan. We are supposed to have 6-10 inches by tomorrow afternoon. Kids are hoping for no school! A snow day would be nice! I miss them when they are in school all day. A side benefit is that I can stay in my pjs and drink coffee instead of playing taxi driver :).

I did some sewing this weekend but can’t say I produced much. Working on my “crap” quota I guess. I did make a few ACEOs. I am still trying to decide if I  like that format or not. I like the idea of it, just not sure I can say much in a space of 2 1/2″ x 3 1/2″.  I think mine still need some work. Maybe tomorrow I wil take pics and take suggestions :).

I have  a luscious box of hand dyed leftover strips. I should be able to come up with something creative out of this box! So far, this is what I have done:


Not loving it so far. Although I do seem to have a fascination with ladders lately. Here is a piece I made for my show. I call it “Self-Effort”:


I do like this one a lot. Until next time.
