Hi everyone! Without going into a lot of boring detail, I’ve been really tired and swamped with other projects, that’s why I haven’t blogged lately.  To make up for it this post will be image heavy with projects of both mine and some friends.

To start off, The Skrappy Ladies had their fall canyon retreat in October and a wonderful time was had by all.  The challenge this time was to make a project using the selvedges of fabric.  All the entries were really great.

The first entry is Carol J’s, I think. lol it’s been a while.

The next picture is of two entries.  The lamp is by Jean and the zippered pouch is by Melissa.

Jan covered a can for her entry.  Which we used to hold the votes for winning project.

The winning entry was from Cindy S. with her appliqued selvedge pillow.

There were a couple of finished quilts to show and a pic of one in progress.  First up is a quilt by Jean.

You may be wondering what I did all weekend. Well I made some felted fabrics with my felting machine, and started work on a new site on the Crazy World project. No pics of Crazy World until I finish Australia.

I will leave this part of the post with a picture from the front porch area of the canyon lodge, showing the canyon wall.

Just recently I finished an online course by Barb Owen.  The class was “Mining Your Muse” and along with the learning, I had a great time.

One of the first Muses that we learned about was also the latest one I’ve finished. She is “Thistle” – the artsy fartsy muse.

Then I combined two lessons for my Soul Muse, the face drawn on a covered button and the soft body. For the body I used the backside of one of the felted fabrics that I made at fall retreat.  She didn’t want to stick around so she is now residing with Mitzi.

And last but not least.  I made a birthday card for my dear Daughter in law, Jessica.

Now I need to get busy and send out my Postman Swap envies and make some Christmas cards.

Thanks everyone for stopping by,
