Charms for Quilting Arts.......




Hopefully, they will be published! If I just see a piece of one of mine, I will be pretty excited! Fiber art traders' is doing a Plus size inchie trade and apparently the owner of the group contacted someone at "Quilting Arts" and they want to feature a big number of them all together..We will see what happens! I really tried to make them unique and all kind of different. The green ones actually turned out the most beautiful I think...I used a drk green velvet as an accent and it is really pretty. I am sending them in tomorrow...


I got a couple new books that are pretty cool Saturday....Bernie Berlin's atc book and Romantic Home Sewing.....I love them both. The atc book is the bomb! I wasn't sure I would like it since I have been making them a while, but it is really out there...So many techniques. I saw the "magazine cards" on Evie Z's site and fell in love with them. I emailed her and asked her how she did it and she told me about this book. I cant wait to make some of these cards!.The sewing book has the some of the sweetest projects...Mostly I will probably just do a lot of drooling over the pictures and not so much sewing...I have a zillion things going and not enough time....DARN IT! Anyway, they are both books I would recommend...


Tomorrow I am going to get outside and take some pictures of some of my flowers...My dad loves to garden and he keeps asking how they are doing...Some things are just going crazy! I have clematis that are as big as dinner plates...no lie....

Love those plus sized inchies ... will keep my fingers crossed that at least some of the get published. Great work.
I have loads of beautiful clematis flowers this year too - maybe not dinner plates but large and plenty of them :)
