I have not been in the mood to blog lately. No particular reason. I just think the blog’s biorhythms must be on a low curve. It’s certainly not been for lack of things going on. To summarize:
- I’m still fundraising for JDRF.
- I’ve made a bunch of Smurf hats, a kilt, and a Smurfette dress for the annual Halloween party at the taekwondo school we attend.
- Vampire capes are next on the list.
- Things are going swimmingly in my patchwork class.
- We’re trying to show as much of Oahu to our exchange student as possible — hiking Diamond Head, going to the Haunted Lagoon, eating sushi, etc.
- My art quilt, “War Sucks” will be shown at Art=Quilts=Art in Auburn, NY next week, and at Art Quilt Elements in Wayne, PA next year, and I’m still plugging away on it’s comrades in the Army Wife series.
- And, I’m gearing up to go to the International Quilt Festival in Houston in just over a week! That in itself has had enough things on the “to do” list to fill my time.
Part of preparation for Houston involved me getting out my paints and stamps and fabrics and doing some making. About the same time, I also noticed that the cut base of a baby bok choy makes a pretty flower shape. This was worth some exploring….
I added the bok choy to the stamps, grabbed my girls, and we sat out on the lanai to print fabric for a few hours.
Fabric paints worked quite well.
I even ran out to get more veggies to print with. Celery made the white flower in the photo above.
I’m not sure what we’ll do with these, but I’m sure I’ll find something sooner or later.
DeColorant had mixed results.
