Another phone charm

I can now post the latest phone charm I made for one of my Florida friends, Kay Sorensen, over at Quilts + Color.  Check out some of her latest shibori pieces!  Anyway, Kay and I met last year at an art quilt fiber group where I did a small trunk show.  Kay was kind enough to invite me over for lunch at her house a few weeks after our first meeting and I had a delightful afternoon with her!  You can see my post on our visit here.
Anyway, Kay was kind enough to let me choose 'two' of her fabulous amulets that she makes .  I gave one to my friend, Mary, and I kept the other one.  When I  met up with Kay this year, I wasn't sure if she had an Iphone or Smart phone to use a phone charm.  So when we met for lunch this winter, she confirmed she did have an Iphone...so, when we got home to Michigan I headed off to our bead store (see widget on the right of my blog!) and picked out a hand blown bead and added some other beads to make Kay her own phone charm.  You can see Kay's package on her blog here.  I think the bead fits Kay and glad she is happy with it!  Kay is such a happy person to be around and her art work will amaze you!

Also, some good news...this past week on Tues., I went with my friend Carol T., to assist her in showing our Inspired by the Masters exhibit to an Art group in Livonia.  Well, guess what!  I sold one of my quilts!  Who knew!
This was my Inspired by Friedensreich Hundertwasser and measures 20" x 24".   And yes, if you click and look closer, that is a hole/circle I cut out of the quilt.
The other circles were cut out of leftover pieces of the quilted fabric and attached with beads....gotta add my beads!  So now my Hundertwasser has a new home.   I hope Sherry enjoys her new addition!

Today Bob washed windows and screens on the outside of the house.  He always freaks out when I hang out the windows but truthfully, I think he was just getting bored.  He hasn't been golfing due to rainy weather and then I was gone for four days...but works for me!  I now only have to wash the inside windows!
For me, it was a lazy day...took Kalee for a mile walk this a.m., made a nice breakfast for us, then I sat and did some hand stitching on my Out of Asia piece.  Just a nice quiet day....so now another busy week will start!  And there will be lots of hand work and beading!!!  Target dates are approaching...ugh...hate the target dates!
