I finished my CQ project inspired by Sharon's 100 details series. It was a fun project, and I enjoyed trying out different embellishment techniques and basically experimenting with how much embellishment a piece of fabric will bear. The other good thing about CQ is that it entitles you to be in a continuous collecting mode. I'm now on a perpetual search for interesting buttons and threads. I've also collected a few interesting neckties to use in the sample for Sharon's on-line CQ class.
I'll hang this one on the wall, as I don't have a baby grand piano to drape it on. It would be nice on a small table, but the cats would think it's a new platform for them to lay on and survey their domain.
Things are good on the home front. Alex is working and going to school and singing with his band. Allie has just been offered a full-time (but temporary) job doing data entry. She is interested in doing office work so this is her chance to try it out and see if going to college isn't such a bad idea after all. I'm waiting to get my car fixed, working on my Japanese ladies quilt, and I've collected fabric for a new quilt I want to make as a birthday gift for myself. It's pink and green. I'll post pictures of the fabric as soon as I get my camera back from Allie. Everytime I go to use it I have to ask her for it back.
