Hey everyone! I am so glad to have my camera back! I just felt lost without it....I am frantically trying to get my little boy baby quilt done and then I can relax for a while again and just play and make things. Once in a while, I get really sad because everyone acts like I am wasting time doing this kind of stuff...I love the "oh, what's that for" statement. I realized how much of my sanity depends on being able to make things that I think about it...And a lot of times, my feelings are coming out in what I make so it's kind of hurtful. My daughter came up and she looked around the house and said this is "so pretty" and I know she meant it, but she never noticed why....I always was the one who noticed everything as a child.....Anyway, here are some pictures....The felt book is incredible and if you have a question on any kind of felting it is in here! I have got to start felting....right after I quilt make postcards, purses.......etc...haha!


The little atc is called "in her box" and she is a watercolor done around a rubber stamping for "Fabric atc's one to one"...It was a monthly challenge.....Now this go back to what I was saying. I have been feeling really cooped up on Whidbey Island and I have the winter blahs and I looked at this card and it came out in what I did! Isn't that strange..because it was not my intention.......

Last of all my piece de" resistaaaance! The black and red book spread for the round robin....black and red to me, is a little bit risque' you know like fishnets and red garters and this is where my mind went from there....the curtains might be too much, but it is my interpretation of her life is a stage......the little picture on the right is a tiny little altered cabinet card...I actually had a lot of fun and I hope the recipient ( Debby Harrietha) loves it.....night all! Melinda
