It was snowing and now its raining today. We are cooped up inside. So what better to do than begin a blog?
I have to start with my dogs, Roxie and Mik.
|Roxie is our Jack Russell terrier and Mik is our beautiful ridgeback mix|
Now that my daughter has gone off to college, Roxie and Mik are my babies!
I take embroidery classes at our local fabric store and would like to share what I have been doing. Since I am an elementary school teacher, I thought it would be fun to make an old fashioned sampler to hang in front of my door. It took me about 6 months to finish but I am very happy with the results.
My latest passion is crazy quilting. I began learning about crazy quilts a few weeks ago. The square I am working on is one foot square and was originally going to be a pillow but now I'm not so sure. I'm now thinking of it as more of a fabric and embroidery collage....
The silk fabric that I used looks rumpled. I can see that sewing the seems with a machine will be neater than doing it by hand. I have a friend who is going to help me work on my skills with the sewing machine.
At school this week my first graders were learning about matter. We made solid matter collages (LOL!) that I put up for display in the hall. Hope you like them.
