PRAISE THE LORD!
My mother’s aortic aneurism is not large enough to require surgery! She can pick up PJ, too!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I spent a long weekend working on my red and gold project. I really enjoyed myself and stitched till my fingers hurt. I’m just not so sure I like what I’ve done. I’d remove the beads, but it’d leave holes.
I plan on making it into a book jacket, so we’ll see. I think I’ll put it up for a week or so and have a look at it again,then.
Yeah, I know, that’s Brad’s job, but I’m talking about Angelina fibers. I bought a few packs of it at the needlearts extravaganza in Statesville. I experimented with embossing the fibers with a rubber stamp and iron: This snowflake stamp wasn’t “cut” deep enough to work well, so I chose what I hoped would be a better one:
I personally am having a ball, sitting home, stitching and watching the ACC tournament. Whew, Carolina had me worried!
On a more serious note, the 8.9 earthquake in Japan and it’s consequences have me worried, too. One of the moderators for the Crazy Quilter’s International Group lives in Sendai in Northern Japan. She has yet to be heard from, but prayerfully, her power, phone and internet service are all out. The military is fine so the couple of former students I have stationed there should be okay. Another couple are working and going to school in Hawaii. They both have good science sense. One of them is a geologist. I think they’ll be fine, too.
This beauty is blooming outside the house where I babysit. I wonder how these blossoms would look printed on fabric and embellished? Or maybe appliqued on a green blender background?
