Happy Halloween

Just wanted to share some Halloween "pretties" that I have made over the years...

These lil' pumpkin wallhangings were made several years ago. I found them today while I was searching for something else in my sewing room/"Fiber Arts Studio".

This is another quilted wallhanging. I'm glad I signed the back of it...many moons ago! It reads "My First Hand-Quilting. 1998". Oh, my! That was forever ago!

This is my page for the Halloween Chunky Book Page Swap on the All Things Tim Yahoo Group. The theme was "Altered Ancestors." These are cousins Ernestine and Emilia.

I made this in a class last year. Lots of fun Halloween goodies. :)

Hope your Halloween is a happy one, too!

Blessings to you and your lil' goblins,

All Things Tim Journal Round Robin

Recently I hosted a Journal Round Robin on the All Things Tim Yahoo Group. Each participant began a journal that travelled around to other artists. We each then added a page (front and back) or a two-page layout to each person's journal based on their chosen theme.

This was one of my favorite pages that I created. The theme was Grungy Numbers. Her pages were various house-shaped chipboard pieces.

Here is the front of the humble abode.

Notice the words on the sheet music...all Tim-esque! Distress...yes!

A yellow rose of Texas by the front a Texas license plate planter, of course.

A big red heart welcomes guests. The entryway has two "sconces" on either side of the front door.

Mother keeps a watchful eye on the going-ons in the neighborhood from the window of her sewing room.

A close-up of the back of the page....more numbers.

And finally the back of my Grungy Numbers page for this participant's journal.

It is always such fun to be a part of other artist's pieces. I enjoy participating in swaps and round robin.

Blessings all, denise :D

"Oh, My Stars"

Our guild Opportunity Quilt 2011 was recently completed. As the chairperson for the quilt, I designed the quilt after seeing the Thimbleberries Block-of-the-Month Quilt 2009. Using a variety of Thimbleberries fabric and various star blocks from Quilters Cache, members of our quilt guild, El Paso Quilters' Association (EPQA), made the blocks. It is named "Oh, My Stars!"

These are the blocks that I made for the quilt...

And here is the completed quilt...quite a beauty!

Happy quilting! denise :D

Going Crazy!

I'm going crazy...okay, crazier...because I'm not able to load pictures on my blog. I've tried several times over the last month or more and no luck. Ugh!

Gonna work on it this weekend when I have some R & R time in the mountains. Yippee!

Stay some oh-so-cute Halloween projects to share.

Enjoy the little moments that make the best memories.
