"Thus nature has no love for solitude, and always leans, as it were, on some support; and the sweetest support is found in the most intimate friendship." - Cicero
my weekly report card for the 15 minute challenge:
i was out of town for a couple of days which totally messes with all of my schedules but i still did manage to get all 7 days in for the 15 minute challenge with the group found at Kate at Life in Pieces.
once again i was grateful for the easily carried along pink lemonade quilt. i now have just over half of the alternate blocks quilted.
i used a tailor's buttonhole stitch to attach the leaf onto the AAQI quilt. it worked well as both a way to outline the leaf and sew it onto the piece.
this is a shot of some felting that i managed to get done on my felting machine last week. i'll be fiddling with it a bit more and then using it for postcards. i think.
love the new felting machine but i'm not very good at it yet so it's costing me a fortune in needles~!
recent gifts include:
- the joys of friendship
- a spare hour to hang out at barnes and noble, sip a smoothie and peruse the art magazines
- indulging myself with the purchase of a few of those magazines
