Becoming Madonna (or just dressing up like her)!

For the Madonna concert, I am dressing up 80s Desperately Seeking Susan style. A little altering here and there and it should look good.

T-shirt scarf

When in North Carolina we found an artist collaboration which has awesome items. One item was a t-shirt scarf so I decided to try and recreate. This is the result with a $4 shirt from Job Lot

Children's artwork to quilt

I found this drawing that Sydney did when she was young - maybe in Elementary school. Well this is the inspiration for my next art quilt.

My next project - landscape quilt

Been wanting to try this. Been watching Sewing with Nancy on the subject so I am gonna try a small one.

Here is the background fabric a beautiful blue batik with a little sparkle to represent the night sky

Trees and leaves

Should be fun!

Attempted to Blog using IPhone

Total disaster - trying to stick to my promise and blog more.  Got the app on my IPhone but then there are a number of other steps.

So, needless to say, the pictures and comments for my next project will come late...  It will be worth the wait.

Time to start posting again

Going to make a goal to post something to my blog each day (or at least each week day) - something inspirational and creative.  I need to start tapping into my creative side again.  Now that I have changed jobs(and love my new job) it should free up my brain space to allow the creative bug to re-enter.

Here is something that I found that I really like - click onto this and you will see why.  A blog called 'A Beautiful Mess'?  Right down my alley...
