Elaine's Sharing... Wow!

Elaine was very prolific this semester! Here are some of the pieces she brought in to share.

A landscape with a sky she painted herself
A pretty fence with 3-dimensional dragonflies

A wheel chair bag
Her shadow applique tablerunner
Her totebag side one
And side two

My company is gone. I'm sad that we didn't have better weather while Jonathan was here. Not exactly the impression of California we were hoping to impart! I have the long weekend to finish off the Bernina stuff and get the house back into shape for Pierre's home coming and the next batch of company.

Two Interesting Websites

Okay so now that I have a little more leisure time (I finished the hat today!) I had time to check out a couple of websites.

This one is in last month's Reader's Digest: http://

And my daughter told me about this one: It's a bit frustrating, but somehow its quirkiness intrigues me.


Even More Sharing

Here is the front of Colleen's jacket And the back

Here is Christine's notebook cover. You'd never know she's a beginner!
Christine's photo memory quilt

Christine's rag Christmas tree
And what am I doing, you ask? I'm plugging along on the Bernina Fashion Show ensemble. The dress is done. The coat and lining are done, just need assembly. I am in the throws of making a hat I've never tried before. I'm so glad I made a muslin mock-up first so I could see how many mistakes I could make! I'm hoping I got them all out of my system and the real thing will go smoothly. The cap part is finished, now I just need to tackle the band and the brim. I don't think it's breaking any rules to tell you that it's a hat known as a Gatsby or newsboy. Are you picturing it? I wish I could show you all, but not until the grand unveiling October 30 in Houston.
