It was one of those fast little projects. I mixed 2 colors of paint together for the knife and fork. Then stamped them on the kitchen print. I quilted around them and then I started to think of words that fit for a kitchen. Family, Heart, Home, Eat and Food. For a 2 hour project I am happy with it. And it only took Sat. morning to do!

We watched the storm clouds for a long time last night.
We were very lucky it was not as bad as the Southern part of the state.
All that was on TV was Storm stuff and you can only look at that so long so it was off to the sewing room for me. I thought if I was going to get blown a way I would be doing something I enjoyed.
The blocks had to be floral prints and W-on-W . I don't seem to have many fl orals in my stash it was hard to come up with 4 I could use together.
Today it has been a beautiful morning. With the sun shining and the birds singing.
I hope it can stop raining long enough so I can get the garden plowed and planted.

It reminded me of finger painting so that's what I did.
This is what is called a learning experience!
We got more rain tonight and more coming. Thing are pretty soggy here. We haven't got our garden in yet. I went and got plants for it after work tonight. I thought if it did hail I may not get y. Everyone will be replanting. That happen one year to use we all got hail and had to replant gardens and it was very hard to find plants to replant with.

These are called Button Fairies . This is my version. I thought I would experiment making the wings.I took some holographic tissue paper and sandwiched it with iridescent organdy. Then I used a free standing lace pattern and embroidered it for the wings. It was interesting and fun but the wire was hard to get in the buttons and place them were they belonged.
They don't look much like some of the others I have seen some use butterfly wings and faces.
I made do with what I had on hand. I would like to of had larger buttons. I thing they will be O.K.
It has got very warm this afternoon. My sewing room is getting hot and stuffy.

So I did get some sewing done today. I could sit and watch my sewing machine work. Just set the pattern and let the machine do the rest. I love the embroidery machine.
We have had lots of rain here. With thunder and lighting. I think it's supposed to rain off and on all week end. D dog Teddy and I watched it rain buckets this afternoon.
I did this set for a trade in my Sew Good Friends yahoo group. The theme was Summer.
Then I made 4 potholders for prizes for the week long Sewing Bee we had all week on a Yahoo quilting group Stash Builders. I donated 2 for prizes and one for the hostess and one for DD Jennie. I put every ones name on theirs.

I would not have made it to 3 pair. They are only 4" long and I am not a beadier! What a Friday night project! I lead a exciting life!
We had a wonderful sunny and warm day with not much wind.

This one I added the purple and teal. I was not as happy with how it went together as the cat one. But I think the owner will like it.
I got mine back and now to find time to quilt it.
It's nit what I usually do it's in red and black. I thought it would be a change. It came out well.
DGD didn't make it today to do pillow cases. She has a cold or something? Not feeling well what ever it is. So I had time to get these done. They will go out in the morning mail to the next person.

I did these little note pad covers for my Like minded artist yahoo group. It's called swap you stash . I try to use everything that is sent . Some times it's hard to do . I think they turned out O.K.
I all ways make one for me and one for the sender so she has a memento of the swap.
I think DGD Kristin and I are making pillow cases for her friends grad. gifts today. With her hand hurt she can't use the rotary cutter. So she can sew and I can cut for her.

It's now time to get things done have been putting off for the last 2 weeks. Now that Graduation is over.
I think DGD Kristin and I are going to the Quilt Shop in O' Neil. She need fabric for pillow cases. She thinks thy would make nice gifts for her girl friends that graduated with her.
They do make a fast and fun gift.

This is a very tired Mom ! Before she got ready for the graduation! She will not like this photo. I think it says it all on how we felt by that time!
One happy Grad!
I went and watched Kristin open her grad. gifts today and had left overs from the party for lunch and came home and did nothing all after noon. well maybe one thing I did was give my dog Teddy a bath. I took him with me to Jennie's and he round in a mud puddle he was mud and sand . I couldn't tell what color he was.

She wanted teal and lime green for her party. With luck I had 3 yds. of this butterfly print and some marbled or shaded blue and green fabric. Then I went to Linda's a quilt friend that dose hand dyed fabrics and got what she had in the colors I needed. It's nice to have Friends that are talented.
It's raining with a chance for snow tonight. Wow would think we would have this kind of weather on 10th. I hope it gets better for the party this afternoon and night.
Now maybe I can work on some other things I need to get done soon.
