Way back when, in the spring of 2009, I decided as part of my 101 Things in 1001 Days that I would start a photo project – taking a photo every day for a year. I figured it would be kind of a cool way to journal a year of my life with photos […]
3/21/10 – 3/22/10 So, this marks my last two days of the 365 Photo Project. It’s kind of a shame that I didn’t go out with more of a bang. But, it is what it is. Progress photos of And They Sinned – my New Year’s Day new start. That’s all folks!
3/14/10 – 3/20/10 A few years ago when my Great Aunt died, her daughter offered me her quilt scraps. As time went by I gave up hope of every seeing them. But, at Christmas she sent me a Christmas card and asked if I was still interested. I replied that YES I certainly was still […]
3/7/10 – 3/13/10 Sunday was day 2 of the workshop. I started stitching petals for my three-dimensional flower. Now that I’m done, I’ll cut that yellow thread and the petal will detach from the fabric and I’ll be able to tack it down to my piece to form a flower. A view of the finished […]
2/28/10 – 3/6/10 I went to a workshop on Saturday with Amy Mitten. I’m in love with her thread, particularly the names of them. She designed an anniversary sampler for my guild’s tenth anniversary. This is my little bitty start.
2/21/10 – 2/27/10 So so so tired from Nashville. We got back Monday night (we drove). And I got right up Tuesday morning and went to work. Sylvia brought these fantastic things to me from Germany. You literally cannot just eat one. OMG they were so good. And I had to share these fabulous tags […]
2/14/10 – 2/20/10 Photos from Valentine’s Day can be seen here. On Thursday I headed off for Nashville to attend the Needlework Market with a friend. She asked me to come and help her with her booth. This license plate in the parking lot gave me a giggle. I knew we were in the right […]
2/7/10 – 2/13/10 We had snow again. It started during the night. And continued on throughout the day. When I woke up the next morning, the world was still blanketed in snow. Such a rare occurence in Texas. The branches on our trees were so heavy with snow they formed this little enclave. I felt […]
1/31/10 – 2/6/10 Guild night on Tuesday. Kim’s secret stitcher gave her some fun Mardi Gras stuff in her bag. And Kim gave me a scarf she made for me. Isn’t it fantastic??? I’m so in love with it. And she made it skinny like I like too. I spent Saturday afternoon making sand bags […]
1/24/10 – 1/30/10 Not much to report this week. Jut loving my silver feather earrings Eric bought for me at the Red Earth Festival we went to in Oklahoma a while back.
1/17/10 – 1/23/10 Although blurry, I love my new purple sweater along with matching nail polish. And momma’s got a brand new bag too… Saturday night we went to the Crystal Palace Burlesque Show at the Lakewood Theater, which was fun. Lots of amazing performers!
1/10/10 – 1/16/10 January is usually full of thinking about new projects and starting new things. This piece features a quote from Rodin. I can’t wait to see more of it come alive. This is a piece hanging in my local needlework shop. I am just in awe of it. The thing is HUGE!
1/3/10 – 1/9/10 This week was all about quilting. I finished the baby quilt for Cole. I’m really happy with how it turned out. And I started a calendar quilt. One strip of fabric for every day of the year.
12/6/09 – 12/12/09 Photos from the Going Away Tea here. I love this snowflake brooch my MIL gave me. And I love wearing it on this sweater.
11/29/09 – 12/5/09 I made this for my guild’s annual ornament exchange. I’m thrilled with how it turned out And speaking of the guild, photos from the holiday party are here. A friend bought me a box of Twilight Sweethearts. Love the ones that say “Bite Me”.
11/15/09 – 11/21/09 Organizing thread for some Christmas projects – a Nativity piece and my annual Christmas ornament for Eric. Standing in line to see New Moon on opening night.
11/8/09 – 11/14/09 See Margaritas and Fajitas here. Nothing else for this week.
11/1/09 – 11/07/09 Trying to choose fabric that works well with my threads for my New Year’s Day project. Yeah, it was a slow week.
10/25/09 – 10/31/09 Making progress on my Halloween project. Of course, it has a graveyard on it. Finally finally finished the quilt top for the baby quilt. Love how it’s turning out. I wore my “Halloween costume” around the house on the 31st. Top… Bottom… And I spent my evening indulging in my annual ritual […]
10/18/09 – 10/24/09 We celebrated Eric’s birthday over at my ILs. He got his standard birthday cake which is a yellow cake with a layer of strawberries and whipped cream icing. His mom and sister really make the best cakes. But the irony that strawberries are one of the few foods I am allergic to […]
