Shop Hop

My Mom and I did a shop hop of quilt shops on the Olympic/Kitsap Peninsula today. We went to 5 shops and at each one we received either a blue or yellow fat quarter. I loved visiting all of those shop each have their own unique feel.

We also stopped at Pacific Fabrics in Bremerton. I picked up another fat quarter and some ultra suede.

While at Esters Fabrics on Bainbridge Island I found this cute satin ribbon that I had to have.

Also at Esters I purchased two wonderful pewter bumble bee buttons. The had a great collection of buttons there.

Season change and a braclet

One of the sure signs that the seasons are changing arround here from summer to fall is the GINORMOUS garden spiders. This one has been hanging out side our front window for about a week.

I recently finished(almost) this braclet. It was a design i have been admiring for some time. Now all I need to do is the clasps, I think I want 3 buttons instead of 3 beads. Any suggestions??

New post with a new computer

While trying to send an e-mail yesterday, old bessy (the computer) crapped out on me. Lost EVERYTHING!!!!!!! Pictures are gone, e-mails are gone, files are gone, patterns and recipies are gone, it is all GOOOONNNNNEEEEEE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Went to Wally World and purchased a new one and went in to $350 more into debt....So all evening I was updating and downloading and entering pass words and e-mail addresses. Other than that not much has been going on. Franc smashed his finger and we got to spend 3 hours in the ER. Here is a pic of Frankenfinger

I will spare the gorry detailes but the tip is broken and he had to have 5 big ole stitches. He keeps trying to show it to me, gross!!

I got my beaded hand finished, well at least the beaded part. Now working on the quilting part. I am going to frame it in black fabric and then add some other elements to it. I have a fabric origami book by Mary Jo Hiney called Quiltagami. I will be adding some origami in to the design.
Its not as cool as Beths beaded hand but she has more experience with bead embroidery than i have. This is my first large detailed piece.
