was great fun. This old science teacher celebrated by crafting! I’ll share later. Here’s a photo I got as the moon receded.
I put my eclipse glasses over the lens in my iPhone and took this. I didn’t realized I had captured anything until I enlarged it!
And mine is almost ready!
I did decorative machine stitching around both circles, today.
I don’t have but 20 stitches on my simple machine. I chose #17. It looks like a daisy chain or a row of little starburst!
I’m getting ready to commemorate the upcoming solar eclipse here in the US. It’s been “under my iron” so far, today. I used three fat quarters, 2 dinner plates of slightly different diameters and some Wonder Under. Now to decide how to finish it…
to add to my unfinished quilt collection!
This one is a Split Rail baby quilt I finagled from a jelly roll bundle. The fabric is Butterfly Blooms by Lily and Loom. I ordered it from Craftsy. I pulled all the pink, purple and green from the roll and had just enough to make what I hope will be a 36×42″ quilt. I haven’t measured yet, I’m too chicken!
I forget sometimes that I have Kaleidoscope Kreator 3.
All of these were created from this day lily photo:
Just finished this Kumihimo cord! I am so happy with the colors! I would have never thought to combine copper, gold and raspberry, but the stone did it for me! I dyed the raspberry cords, myself!
is another woman’s palette! The dining room table at Mama’s House
Isn’t it wonderful when you find things in your craft stash that you forgot you had? I found these in my Kumihimo stash!
After returning from Flat Rock, and a very wonderful, quilt-filled weekend with Laura, the hubby and I headed for Charlotte to help with the grandkids. Then, it was on to Pawley’s Island and that oceanfront screened porch I posted about earlier.It was a wonderful, relaxing trip and one day was especially memorable. I found a quilt shop in nearby Murrell’s Inlet that I didn’t know about. It wasn’t easy to find. It was in a secluded side alley in a strip mall. It was worth the hunt, though! Here are some photos from Accent Sewing:ALL of their fabric was 25% off! This was just one small portion.
‘like a candy store with no calories!
I was strong, and didn’t buy any fabric. I did pick up a copy of the #3 Cake Mix and an 8″ square in a square ruler.After that visit, I was starving, so we headed on up to Myrtle Beach to our favorite hole in the wall eatery!
This is another place that’s hard to find, but WELL worth the effort! I love the BBQ grilled shrimp and Kent likes the blackened grouper. Look for it on Broadway behind the Methodist Church. Tell Steven, Andrew and Agnes we sent you!
Then, it was straight out Hwy 501 to revisit Quilting at the Beach!This shop has the friendliest folks!
I didn’t resist the fabric selection this time.
We have a timeshare at what is probably the oldest and smallest condominium complex in Myrtle Beach. We paid it a quick visit to check on the progress of the elevator that has been 27 years in coming:At last, it was back to Pawley’s for dinner, which, after a late lunch, I think was a milkshake!
This is mine! Kumihimo is both addictive and soothing, not to mention, productive!
