No, no quilting yet. My machine is still in storage. But I need a creative outlet to de-stress.
Flowers do make me happy, but these are a little strange. I haven’t painted or drawn anything for so long, I don’t feel much like an artist at all. This is messy. Watercolors take practice and I am really out of practice. I feel like I am starting over, and I hope you don’t mind if I share a few things that truthfully, I’m not too happy with. I’m trying to bring some balance to my life my drawing more, even if it is just doodling. And I don’t claim to be very original as I do look at Pinterest a lot. Here is the non painted version.
Maybe I should have left it this way. Really struggling with colors–but I’ll probably get better if I keep trying. The only reason I had time to do this was I was home sick with a cold from work today. Hope my weird creation at least made you smile!
The school year is almost over and that means I have more time to quilt! I woke up Saturday morning with that in mind and this is the result. For a long time I have wanted to make some quilt projects and offer free patterns and tutorials on my pamsquilting.com website. Now I finally finished one! Hey, quilters, let me know if this is helpful. And if anyone makes a wallhanging like this of your own, I’d love to see a picture! Hope you are all having a great Memorial Day weekend. And please check out the USA wall hanging tutorial and let me know what you think.
Oh my! It’s Spring Break and I can finally think about something other than teaching music for a few days. I looked at my blog and realized it was stuck in December! So sorry. Well, it certainly isn’t cold winter here in sunny Las Vegas today with highs in the mid-80’s. I needed something bright and fun to post just to get some “Spring” into my blog. So I searched through my almost finished projects and found these little hexies. Will it turn into a small pillow or a wall hanging? Don’t know yet, but I have some ideas. I’ve tried it out on a couple of different background fabrics just to get my creative juices flowing. I’ll decide soon what to do and promise not to wait another 3 months to post about it! Happy Spring!
By the way, I’ve updated my “About Pam” page to reflect a little more of what I am doing these days.
