Yep...I'm still here!

I know it's been awhile since I posted but I have been working on projects...I just can't show what I'm doing!   I beaded Mr. Blue's feet on Saturday and started on the binding for my 12"x12" challenge squares that are due in September.  I also played with some stencils last week, which was fun and I can show those!    I used commercial fat quarters pieces I found to paint.  I have some ideas for these but will show those later.

I used and Indigo fabric paint on these and Golden Fluid acrylic brown(s) below.

This week will be what else is new!  Today, I'm headed off to have lunch with my friend, Joan, then we're going to the movies to see 'Dunkirk'!   I'm not big on war movies but poor Joan has sat through some of my strange movies I like, so it's her turn to pick!  I hear the movie is good...I just don't like sad parts in movies.
I'm more of a mystery or horror movie kind of gal!  In fact, my DIL Kris and grandson, Nick, are planning to go see 'Annabelle2'!!  How's that for a horror movie.  I think it comes out August 11th or around that time.  Now to try and work around their schedule...between work, football and entertaining we may have to get it on Red Box to watch!  HA

Wednesday is time with kids and Friday I'm headed to Cranbrook Art Museum with my bud, Carol, to see the exhibit of Alexander Girard - a designer who headed up the textile and fabric division of Herman Miller in Zeeland, Michigan.  You can go to the link and see some of his work.  Of course, Carol and I will have lunch and talk...lots...that's what we do best!  It's hard to be me and be so busy!  But I wouldn't have it any other way!


  1. Sounds like a good upcoming week…..that’s for sure….enjoy!

  2. Pretty pretty pretty fabrics! Yum :-)

  3. I like the results with that stencil! The Art Museum trip sounds interesting- have fun.

  4. Your stenciled and dyed fat quarters are lovely. Your week sounds perfectly wonderful spending time with friends. Hubby and I saw Dunkirk and fortunately he told me the history of Dunkirk on our drive to the theater. I had no idea! Happy Being Busy Dear...<3
