sometimes you just want to do something for fun! One of my online swaps this month was the perfect place to just play a little! After doing some stalking on my partner and her likes I found that she loved frogs.....Had lots of fun making this little guy but decided he would be lost without his pond and lily pad so I made sure he had that too when he traveled to his new home! Next I'll be back to my quilting with some new quilts to show you and a tutorial or two! Things will be picking up here on the blog!

I'll be getting back to my studio to work this week and took some time this week end just to play and relax a little. Julie Richardson used hexies in a little mini quilt for Art Quilting Studio magazine and I wanted to try a variation of her little quilt just to experiment with my box of hexies! She used lots of yo yo's and images on fabric for more embellishment but I decided I wanted to keep it simpler with the idea of using it for a fun quilt block in the future. I added a few buttons for just a hint of embellishing and really like the result. It's always fun to be inspired by another artists work and make it your own.

Some days you just have to step back and just play a little in your workroom! All of my orders were caught up, I was ready for my next show in Reno Nevada next week and I had even finished my yardwork.....what to do!! I decided just to play a little and make myself a little piece of fiber art to hang for summer. This is what I came up with!

Finished! the cover is complete and ready to be put to work! I chose a Japanese linen print that reflects my love of anything "birds"! It took an afternoon but I saved the $90 and up that they wanted at the departmentstore in the handbag department! And mine is a one-of-a-kind!
