The Storm has passed!

Issac came and went without much of a fuss in my area. I did get a day off of work so we stayed home and relaxed, save for a little trip to Waffle House for lunch. On our way out the door I noticed a dog wandering the streets of our neighborhood without an owner in sight so we looked at his collar and thankfully it had a phone number. He was returned to his home in about 20 minutes. They weren’t sure how he escaped. I was glad he got back home.

Putting some of my new fabrics away – I love this owl print! I found it in a remnant bin at Jo Anns of all places.

Cracker Barrel has a display up right now with all sorts of cute owl things. I loved these salt and pepper shakers. They had to come home with me. They’re so tiny and adorable!

This is a new Riley Blake print that I’m working on right now. I added a border print to it and will start quilting it soon. I have it in mind for someone in particular.

Quilted the bali pop jelly roll quilt for my mom! I wanted to do a variegated thread across the top but couldn’t get any of the variegated threads to cooperate. Had to use a light green. Did a simple meander across the whole thing. Need to trim and bind it now.

Bernie loves to wander around the house grumbling at the other dogs with a toy in her mouth. This is the super long squeaky snake they all enjoy playing with.

While quilting the bali pop quilt I went to change my bobbin and realized the Supreme Slider moved. It was sewn through apparently. I won’t be using it anymore I don’t think. I didn’t notice a difference without it.

My first attempt at “painting” with melted crayons! My pear turned out pretty cute. I still have some light outlining to do with colored pencils but it’s not bad.

The pear comes from this book that I talked about in Episode 50 of the podcast¬†Creative Quilts from Your Crayon Box.¬†The pear is one of the practice exercises. It is an interesting technique for sure! I will have to change my napkins and teflon sheet that I’m using so I can get better. My teflon sheet won’t lay flat at all, I need something thicker. The napkins I got are too thick to really control the melted wax. It’s lots of fun though! I can see using this with other shapes like maybe a corgi!
