New Adventures

Thanks A Latte

Shutter Card
Well, my newest adventure is to be part of a card making and scrapbook page class that will be offered right here close to home.  We are meeting only 3 doors down from my house at my friend Anna's house.  Anna Diana, and I will each design two cards, so the class will make 6 cards. I've posted pictures of my cards here and at our meetup site (meetup.com/Cardaholics). I don't know how to turn the pictures around, sorry. Guess that's one of those computer things I need to learn! The first class was originally scheduled for tonight, but we had to cancel for tonight and move the class to next week. The page layout class will be on Sat. Aug. 27th from 10 to 12.  We'll make 6 pages (3 layouts) having to do with summer. Anything that you would do in the summer, camping, vacation, swimming, gardening, etc. Hopefully, everyone will bring some pictures and will go home with 6 pages ready to be put in a book!

I'm still working on lots of projects and will try to be better about posting my finished projects.  After all, that's why I started this blog - to document that I actually am trying to finish something!

Card class

Saturday is our first card class.  It's at The Homeschool House on Robinson Road in the The Woodlands from 1:00 to 4:00. We will be making several cards and learning some cool techniques.  These cards are examples of the types of cards we'll make, but the paper will be different. I'm so hoping that someone will want to come!

Watercolor Quilt Wall Hanging

For my first post I'm displaying one of my ultimate goals, a finished project. This is the watercolor quilt that I made for my Mom.  Of course, it was her Christmas present from last year and it is now Thanksgiving of the next year, but it is done and delivered!

This wall hanging was made from 2" squares of three different fabrics.  I placed the squares to make the wreath design and then sewed them all together.  This was made really easy by the iron on interfacing I used that had a 2" grid all over it.  You then fold along the lines of the grid and sew at a 1/4" seam.  Sew all the horizontal seams first, then press all the seams one direction and sew all the vertical seams and press.  Add a border and/or binding and presto, a cute wall hanging!  This was very fun to make and actually quite easy....it only took me so long because of all the other projects and activities during the year!
