New Review

Quilting Arts has come out with an E magazine for only $14.95 It is not to replace the regular mag but it is so much easier to watch something being made and to hear the person who is making it. Almost like taking mini classes. I just went ahead and ordered it so I don't know if it will be easy to download but it should be. Warning!!! It will not work with Windows 2000. Here is the site that gives a great tutorial and you get an idea of what the emag will be like. Works with Macs too. you may have to look around on this page for the emag button.

They left so fast, the Hatter forgot his hat.

Mad Hatter's Tea Party

The Mad Hatter decided to have a tea party. He invited March Hare and the Doormouse. Every arrived but the Doormouse kept falling asleep so they stuffed him into the sugar bowl. Alice stopped by to join the party but then they were all summoned to see the Queen. Leaving a mess behind them, here is what is left of the party.

trying to prove how human

Remember the contest I just had? Well when I went to wrap the journal up and send it to it's new home, it was no where to be found. I looked thru the boxes from my last show 3x and searched my studio many times but no journal. All I can figure is that it got lifted at my last show. I have had many things stolen during shows, maybe it is the economy, maybe I need to watch more closely but I think I really learned a lesson this time. I keep great inventory before and during the show but when a show is over, I just stuff things into boxes and head home, always really tired. Now I am going to add a column to my inventory sheet and check items off as I pack them. At least I can compare that with my sold column so I will know immediately if something was stolen.
The good that came out of this is that the winner got a much better prize and I hope she wasn't too disappointed to get substitute prizes.

I entered my studio, worked and re-discovered what a wonderful space I have. Messy but comfortable. I cut out a dress and have almost finished it. I also have almost finished the dyed nuno outfit. Finally some progress. I still want to felt really badly and the chiro almost has my back in shape but I fell and broke a bone in my foot. I am so clumsy, one I actually fell off of a speed bump while walking, sigh. Maybe this is why I am not too fond of needle felting?

Now to decide on the next project. I have 2 classes coming up online. I am really excited about both of them. One is a mechanical bat doll that really flaps her wings and the other is a small fairy torso that is dressed up and has beautiful wings. She stands on her own wooden stand and will be so much fun to decorate. But I really need to keep my hands busy while I am in the "mood"

Thinking, thinking...
