Fabric Collage for Lauritzen Garden Exhibit

Had a very productive weekend. Worked on the background of my cactus and finally found a sky fabric that looks awesome. I will start quilting this week so I will have both done by the due date of Oct 15th. Troy and I went to Mahogany Prime Steak House for our 16th anniversay and they gave us 4 roses, such a nice touch for a special occasion.
Went to Mangelsen's to look for sky fabric and found fabric to make new christmas stockings and Troy found an aluminum christmas tree on ebay for 50 bucks and its here is Bellevue - Score!!


Gracie had her girley sx this week and she is doing great, wouldn't even know she had anything done, the scar is pretty much invisable all the stitches are on the inside - Good work Dr May!

My treasures

Here are our cool finds on day one. Back again tomorrow, I have to check out my Flea Market Style mag for ideas of things to look for tomorrow. Troy is going to make a dragon fly out of the old wrench and faucet knobs, just news to find some wings.

Junk bonanza

Great day of junkin at Junk Bonanza in Shakopee MN. I didn't realize that much junk existed!! A lady we were in line with said junkin started in this area so there are a lot of events during the year. There had to be 1000s of people there. Will post some pics of what I got in awhile

Awwwwwwe what a cutie

Gracie loves socks so I made one just for her, hopefully this will save some of our good ones. She has the cutest little face. Her potty training is going really well. She rings the bell when she has to go out unless she just wants to ring the bell for attention.

Finally Friday

I never thought this week would get over, it was the longest short week ever.  I have worked a couple times this week on my cactus, but I just wasn't feeling right somehow. Tonight I think I figured it out, its been too darkish so I began adding brighter greens and I think it is starting to come together. I feel much better about it now. I ripped most of the right side off and added lighter darks (if that makes any sense) and used some lighter mediums. Now I can start the weekend on a high note :)  May have to do some fabric shopping.
