Done in the Nick of Time!

I started this table runner way back in the olden days, like maybe April or May. For some reason, or maybe many reasons, I haven't had much ambition to do anything creative since then but I think the times--they are a changin'!  

I'm not sure it'll stay on this 
table but it works for this pic.

I love the happy colors!
 It's the Barber Pole Table Runner pattern
which is on Craftsy and made by 

I simplified it by making 
straight edges whereas the pattern had 
each section in alternating lengths.  

I'm so happy that I got this spring/summer 
table runner done just in time for fall!
Now I can start on a fall table runner and 
hope to be finished before spring shows up.

Nah, I think I'll skip the table runner thing,
 and finish up some other UFOs instead.
Decision made!

Until Next Time,
May Your Days Be Happy and Bright,

I Spy With My Little Brown Eye... Home Depot in Denton, Texas

Nothing like a little 

The three bumper stickers read:

Crazy Chicken Lady

I Heart Sewing

This Vehicle Stops At All Garage Sales

I'll bet this lady is a lot of fun!


May Your Day Be Blessed 
With Such Wild Creativity,

Talk About A Barn Quilt

Check out this wonderful barn quilt!
It's from the 
page on Facebook.
Cool stuff!
The quilt is painted on.
I love it!
Do you think that maybe 
quilting goes on inside the barn?

Line and Repitition

On a recent trip to Indiana,
line and repetition caught my eye.

Legends Restaurant

French Lick, Indiana

The Overlook Restaurant
(It overlooks the Ohio River)
Leavenworth, Indiana

Antique cars on a downtown 
street in French Lick

The historic West Baden Hotel Steps
West Baden Springs, Indiana

Entrance to the West Baden Hotel

A second-floor patio 
at the West Baden Hotel

I guess I'm drawn to line and repetition.
They were all really cool places!

Peace, Line & Repitition,

Easter Cross

When my Mom passed away in July, my sister Sue bought this cross. I want to call it a wreath but I guess technically it's not since it's not a circle. Anyway, Sue told me that after the funeral, she wanted me to have it. Thanks Sue!

I made it into this Easter cross for the front door. You can't tell but there's a tad bit of red on some of the edges of the word Jesus 
which, of course, represents His shed blood.

Maybe it needs more on it.
Maybe not.
But this is the "wreath" for 
now because it's on the door.
I see that I need to fix the right side of it.

Nevertheless, I wish you all a very Happy Easter!

Pillow Power

My dear friend, Faye, just had a birthday. A few weeks ago, she mentioned that she wanted to add a yellow pillow and some yellow and white daisies to her living room.

With that in mind, 
I made this pillow for her.
She loved it!
Mission accomplished.

I had a little leftover fabric and a 
travel pillow that needed a new 
pillowcase so I made one. 
Ms. Travel Pillow will be right at 
home in Wander Woman (our RV).

May your day be Blessed with Creativity
and more!

Chair Recovering~Another Before and After

See these chairs?

With the old, ugly, beat-up fabric?

They go with this table.
It's the worktable where I paint, etc.
They were long overdue for a makeover.

Here are the NEW and IMPROVED
chairs covered in a pretty batik.
They're vibrant and happy now.
The pictures don't do them justice!

Wonderful hubby did 95% of the work.  
He's awesome, don't you agree?
If I were to spill paint on them, it'd 
blend right in! Hopefully, I won't 
do any spilling though.
I love them!

May Your Day Be Blessed With Creativity!
