A Few Things I've Been Up To :)

I have almost filled my IG Heart canvas. I have 6 spots left. All these wonderful hearts have come from all over the me from all my Instagram friends. 144 hearts....just yummy. I am very grateful and thankful to all who contributed to this lovely canvas.

I have hung it in a place of honor....the entry way to my art rooms. Every day when I see it just makes me so HAPPY :)

Working on art journal pages.

For the life book 2014 project...I learned how to do a paint-over technique. I used a photo of myself.

Over all ....I was very happy with the end result. It even looks like me...with fewer wrinkles...LOL!!!

My girls fresh from the groom....Daisy, Zoey, and Bella...... (and Happy is in the background...giggle...she is a 1930's cement cast from a hotel)

Thanks so much for stopping by....

Judy Niemeyer Class ...Taught by Jackie Kunkel

 I flew back to Arizona for a visit...and while I was there.... I took a Judy Niemeyer class over at Quiltz. The Certified instructor was Jackie Kunkel. AMAZING teacher!!!! If you ever see her name pop up at one of your shops...take her class. The quilt project was the Golden Harvest. (picture below)

My space as I'm working away :)

Lots of demos

After 2 days this is how far I got...My little Janome started to smoke...literally!!! I had to stop sewing...machine broke down.
Some of the class mates brought finished quilt tops they made in another Jackie class. So she could see them..they were all beautiful!!!

Here is Jackie's next class...wish I could take it...but I will be in the Cayman Islands at that time :)

....and finally here is the class photo....
Lots of fun...can't wait until I can take another one of her classes.

Hope all is well with you my friends...
