                                                                       Week 18

For this week's project, I made several bags. I know you, the public, find that hard to believe. Just kidding. I love making bags and quilts and most everything else. These little gems are called " Little Glam Bags" designed by Nancy Green for Pink Sand Beach Designs. The pattern was well written and easy to make. The first one turned out so cute, I had to make one with fabric and suede.
Time has a way of flying by and I seem to be holding on to the tail of a tiger....that is running at high speed. I am presently trying to draw quilting designs on a Wacom tablet connected to my Creative Studio program. I am in the process of downloading the program to a laptop so I can be mobile in my endeavors. Hopefully, this will make me more productive and have better time management skills. I also am embarking on making original designs into silk screens so I can make designer fabrics. Not to mention, classes in the studio and working on my own art quilts.

Lena- I mustache you a question and Living the good Life #3- Meet me on Kauaii will be traveling to Little Rock,Arkansas in June for a show- themed "Down by the Riverside". Lena is going into a juried show, so wish her luck.

I just sent in an application for my quilt, Grandmother's Beer Garden"for possible admittance  into the show "In the American Tradition" that opens in Houston in October 2015 and may travel internationally. I should know something about this by June 5th.

I am also working on a very special art quilt for a call for entry into the SAQA's exhibition called "My Corner of the World". This quilt is near and dear to my heart, so I'm working extra hard on it. Meaning, lots of hand and bead work.

Classes in the studio are weekly. I'm trying to get my name out there so more people can get the word. I am trying my best to attend guild meetings and still work full time. Yes, life is hectic.

So until next week, or the end of this one when I post my next weekly project, live life to the fullest, don't settle for anything less than what you dream about and, as always, keep on quilting.
