Mini Fabric Art Collages

Last fall my art quilting group had a program using Lenore Crawford's fabric art collage technique. One of our members had attended a class by Lenore and showed us the technique. In that meeting, I created the summer and fall mini collages in the picture below. This past weekend I finished the seasons adding winter and spring. It is a fun, fast and easy technique. I found nice shadow boxes on sale at Michael's . The shadow boxes fit very nicely on the shelves in my living room! This past weekend was great! I had fun attending Wicked in Appleton, WI and then came home to watch the Packers win! I live about 2 hours north east of Green Bay so we are all Packer fans here! Happy Quilting!

Pin Cushion Doll Continued

I have been so busy with fun activities lately that I have missed my blogging! Ski season has arrived! I joined a ladies downhill ski club and am going weekly to Marquette Mountain. I have downhill skiied only a few times before and broke my arm six years ago skiing in Montana. I was VERY nervous about trying downhill skiing again! Here is our beginner ski class as the top of the chair lift. We made it up AND down safely! I am the one on the right with the new red helmet! Back to quilting and sewing....a few weeks ago, I blogged about attending a pin cushion doll class. It was very fun! Paulette is an excellent teacher. Here is my "girl". Sally attended the class with me. Here is a gang of girls...from the left they are Paulette's class sample, Sally's doll, and then mine. We think Sally's looks like Barbara Streisand. Well today, I am off to visit Jerri's Quilt Patch in Norway, Mi. They are having a fantastic Superbowl sale that can't be re
