I finally made something that was not so gigantic in quilting. I guess you can say this is my first of few finished wall hangings. It is made with Batiks, which I just love. Even added some crystals on this "piece of art" for air bubbles. It is a raw edge applique, I used invisible thread on top and tan thread in the bobbin . I think Iwill give this to my friend Darla. She likes to scuba dive and also likes sea turtles, I hope she will like it.
Well I better go have some lunch and try to finish up the down stairs bathroom with the painting.
My husband got me this African violet plant from a couple that grow these very well and have won many champion ribbons for them. They had showed him how to water it with a piece of yarn coiled in the bottom of the flower pot with a tail hanging out of one of the bottom holes which then the yarn goes in to a bowl with a lid with a hole in it. It waters it's self which is just great.
Here is a pic of it .
My luck in growing these flowers before were always short lived. Hopefully not anymore.
I have been painting our downstairs bathroom which has not ever had any thing done to it since we have lived in our house since 1987. It had wallpaper that I stripped, and is being replaced with paint. We had put in new flooring, toilet, sink w/cabinet and shower knobs and head. It sure looks more updated now. Well I need to get back started on the bathroom again.
Tonight at guild we revealed our secret sisters I could not believe that my ss was Jo Ellen who I sit with at guild meetings. I guess that shows that she can keep a secret. We are going to draw for new ss's in Feb. I did win a door prize which was some fabric and a heart pattern. Well hopefully I can get this page looking like I want it to look. I am working on some pics now for the site.
