Self Portraits Spring 2017

These adorable, funny, clever, detailed, simplified versions of self portraits done by kids K-5th grade are the highlight of my school presentations. This week I visited St. Mary's Academy- Bay View in Rhode Island. The girls were a wonderful well behaved talented group.
They came up with lots of different looks. Checkout the hairstyles with all the adornments. Lovely lips and rosy cheeks.
 Eyelashes, Eyebrows and heads in all sizes. A beautiful array of girls. A wonderful day was had by all at Bay View! Special thanks to the talented art teacher, Mrs. Flanigan, who arranged my visit and prepared the supplies for our busy day.

The School House SHOP HOP!

 Oh my goodness what a fun day. I have heard of these shop hops were a handful of shops sorta put on a party and attendees flock from shop to shop. but never been on one. I was up at 6 am and ready to ride with my quilting club friends to New Hampshire. To start with we all signed up and purchased our tickets ahead of time. We received a useful turquoise messenger bag with directions and instructions...like a treasure hunt.

At each shop we got a free square of fabric, a quilt pattern, and chances at raffles. Plus free brunch, lunch or desert according to the time of day. Also, almost every shop had a demonstration going on. I learned lots of new techniques. So many fabulous quilts and inspiration! The pin wheel pattern above was one of the giveaway instructional. I LOVE it! But I would make it in my colors.

 Had we know there would be so much to eat we probably would not have stopped to eat at Daniel's in Henniker near the Quilted Threads (one of my favorite shops for their choices of bright colors). But this eatery was lovely with a view of the water and the falling SNOW! What snow??
At the Bunkhouse we spied this cheater quilt patterned bag that I had to have. Decided the pattern was to hard so I just got the fabric. Then at our next shop The quilted Crow, They were giving away a EASY travel tote pattern. So I am now ready to make a tote...and more cloth hen pincushions of course.

Blizzards and Valentine decorations

It all started with a little snow one Friday morning. It was cold and snowy so the domestics slept in while the wild life started a feeding frenzy.
At 9 AM my neighbor Annie called to see if I'd like a walk in the snow. The wind and snowfall was picking up a bit, but we soldiered on. Lula belle kept having to shake off the snow clumping on her face so she could see. We all returned home pretty wet.

So what do you do when you're snowed in. Break out the candy and make Candy Houses. Sister Sue, my niece Emma and I made these for Valentines decorations a few nights ago. YUM!

Making Iddy-Biddy Art

 After years of creating Cut Paper Children's books, magazines and advertisements, I have ended up with a closet stuffed to the brim with boxes of cut paper art.

Along with these whole pieces of art I end up with little bits that I can't just throw out! So I have started making itty-bitty works of art that I place in tiny frames 6 1/2 x 4 1/4.

 I am having a wee bitty sale on Thursday evening at 3:00 pm at my studio. I will also be at T.C. Scoops in Medway our local Ice Cream Parlor for a special arts and crafts night.
Or contact me for any thing you like.

Designer Hens

 I love working with Designer fabrics for my little pincushion/paperweight hens.

These two hens are very special to me as they are made of material designed by my talented friend Nicole Tamarin.

I created these two pretty girls for the designer. The green and pink is named "Nicole- Skilled and Classy". The blue is named "Tamarin- Talented and Stylish".

"Nicole" hen is available at 5 Crows Gallery in Natick. I have a couple of Tamarins roosting in my studio soon to go up on Etsy.  Although no two birds are alike the fabric will be the same.

I adore my #HerdOfHens each one is a thrill to see finished.
