November Studio update

November is almost over already. I feel like it has just started. Thanksgiving is over and I hope everyone had as a joyful one as we did. We have lots to be thankful for this year.
We have had our first snow fall of the year. And Christmas is fast approaching.
Here is a quick update on the studio.
Here is Quinn helping me bag and put away inventory. He is such a great assistant and he love to be in the studio making also.
Here is a picture of several project that are in progress. I have finally settled on the design of them and now they just need to be finished. Some are old projects rediscovered and others are new.
There will be four new necklaces and one new pair of earrings. I have loads of new ideas also. I just have to find more time in there. I am hoping to find more time very soon. Again thanks for always reading and I will do another update very soon.
Have a fabulous day.

Quilting update

Here is a quick update on Quinn quilt. Well first it is not done, as I knew it would not be done in time for his birthday. And Christmas is fast approaching. I am hoping to at least have the top done by then. Also I have my new machine. It is a Singer 128 with gold sphinx decal on it. I love it. It is a treadle and I love that it is so simple, Quinn is excited to learn how to use it also.
 Here I am Working on it. So fabulous!!
 Here is a good amount of the top done. All the big squares still need to be put together. After that I will lay it all out and put the top together. I am so happy with the way it has been coming together.
I promise that my next post will be about jewelry and what is going on in the studio. Thanks for reading. Have a fabulous day.

Quinn's Art project

Last weekend Quinn made this amazing piece art. I think it is just amazing. He worked on it for most of the day. First he blew up a balloon and then added masking tape all over the balloon, so that it could not be seen. Then he took markers and crayons colored it and then wiped it off. The effect was this amazing texture of color. Then he popped the balloon and cut a slit in it and had help from daddy to put the twine tied on it. Then he filled it with cloth from my scrap bag.

I just think that it is amazing that he took it upon himself to make this fabulous piece of art. It warms my heart to see him enjoy making so much.
