Hello everybody! I can't believe we are already into June! Wooo, the saying time flies when you get older must really be true, because I turned 50 on Sunday, and now it is JUNE! :) My word. My lovely and beautiful family and friends threw me a fabulous surprise party. Look at my cake, isn't it lovely? You can see the garden in the back, the cake was in our little garden house out near the garden. I am so blessed. Thank you to everybody for the birthday wishes and their hard work. It was greatly appreciated!
Next, my guest artist blog spot is up at Luminarte. I would LOVE it if you stopped in and posted a hello! Pam's Guest Artist Spot at Luminarte keep checking back, I have a little tutorial on the project I posted a sneak peek for in the last post.
Class in Chicago is finished now, and the garden is 85% planted. Hopefully the rest will go in this weekend. This crazy weather has been a hindrance to getting everything done. We have a free weekend this weekend though (YAHOOOOOO!!!) so I have great plans on finishing things. I have a mile long to do list, but I am actually happy to have time to work on it, even though many of the items are chore like items. I do plan on sneaking some creative time in, not sure if it will be fabric related or scrappy or mixed media related. Any creating time is good time though, so I can't wait! Here is a pic of a little layout I recently created (I used twinks, so there is a shimmer to things you can't really see in the pic)~
I have also started taking digital pics of some of the quilts I made years ago. This is one I designed and made for my wonderful hubby. I made it about 12 years ago. I won a blue ribbon at the county fair with it too, I was pretty happy. It featured machine piecing and quilting, and hand turned applique for the sports figures. It took me a while to figure out how to design the sports figures and make them as large as they are. My hubs is a sports nut, can you tell?
OK, I am off to the garden center now for a few flowers for my pots and hanging baskets. Then it is on with the to-do list! I wish you have a joyful and creative week ~ Pam
