I managed to finish 3 cheater quilts this week, and make patterns for them which are waiting to go to the printer's (hopefully tomorrow) and be put in their little bags. I got 8 more beasties 90% done, but I ran out of steam and declared Saturday a Pajama/Blankey/Couch/Snuggle Day. The most ambitious thing I did was to play a board game with my son. (He beat me by ONE point, by the way, even though I was totally whomping him til his very last move.) So the last 10% of doneness will just have to wait til tomorrow. In the meantime, two of the three quilts are up for auction, but the bird one is waiting til next week.
This one is called Cats in the Garden.
It was so fun to paint!
I wanted to make 15 different versions.
Now where did I put that cloning machine?
I repainted this next one several times til I was happy with the colors. I really like how it turned out though. What can I say, I just love those anthropomorphic celestial bodies. This last one, called Birds and B's,
is probably my favorite, just cuz I like moving
the little button-jointed wings around.
Also, it indulged my love of fonts. It did put a serious dent in my green button collection though. I think I used about 70! No more button trees in my near future. Unless maybe they're apple trees, I've got lots of red buttons. . .hmmm. . . I couldn't resist giving them flappy little wings. A bird's not much of a bird without moveable wings afterall. The rest of the softies will be done by Tuesday (God willin' and the creek don't rise), so I'll see you then.
