We Are Three Of A Kind

Robbie, Kay and Beth all love to play with fabric, fiber, paint, dyes, design and  creativity. We each have our own way of doing this.
We all are continually trying new things and even revisited things from our pasts.
Friday the three of us got together for lunch and sharing, showing and telling.
It was an amazing day with each of us having things that were so different that what the other two were doing.  
Robbie does some of the most amazing beading I have ever seen. She is constantly trying new things and currently is taking a year long class online from an artist in the UK. Beth is an accomplished doll artists. She also does a variety of surface design techniques and is continually trying so many new things.
All of us make quilts, with each of us producing totally different types. I hope to be able to share some of the pictures I took at our get together on future posts. Blogger is still making me fight to put up a post so I feel one photo is my limit right now.
Robbie has a blog which I am sure you will enjoy: robbiespawprints.blogger.com

Eagle River Quilt

I made the blocks for this quilt close to 20 years ago. Each and every block took a lot of time to make. 
They sat in a box until I decided it was time to make them into a quilt this month. 
I was able to assemble the quilt in only 2 days which surprised me as there was a lot of figuring and filling in empty spaces to do.  
It is now quilted and bound and I'm pleased with the finished piece.

2019 First Quilt

This is a quilt I started in November 2018 using a Box Quilt block I made in 1993. I expanded the block in a medallion format.
You can see the circular quilting I used on it.
I designed and taught a sampler quilt class and this was one of the extra blocks I made as a demonstration block to show students how to construct it.

A Hug From Grandma Kay

I knit this shawl for my DIL Julie to wear for the wedding. I asked her to wrap it around Jessica and Kevin as a hug from Grandma Kay.
We are so happy to have Kevin as a part of our family.

Personal Wine Coasters



Now you won't get YOUR wine glass confused with someone elses! It will also protect your table.



I made each one different. Having each one totally different from the others will make it easy to remember which glass is yours.
