Material Girls

At my quilt group this week, Material Girls Idaho, we each made a cute little pin cushion from two circles of fabric. The bottom piece is wool. They were easy and fast, my two favorite things and my homemade pin toppers look great on it. Follow the link and check out the photos from our show and tell. The recipes from our luncheon are even included.

Pizza Box-black and white

This month I had Mary's pizza box and she's doing all black and white squares. So I improvised a square this time and I think it turned out cute(sorry it's a little blurry).

Here are all the blocks in her box so far. I know she'll love making a quilt from all of these.

Dinosaur Eggs

Thanks to a post and tutorial on Our Best Bites, my girls and I decided to make dinosaur eggs last night. This morning when we unveiled/peeled the eggs, it was a fun surprise with each one.

Once they are hard boiled and cracked, then they have to stay in the dye cups overnight.
In the morning we peeled all the eggs and to our surpise even the inside of the peeled shells were a piece of art.
Some of the eggs were easier to peel than others, but each one is quite unique and of course very pre-historic looking.

Scraps galore

I've had a huge stash of batiks for quite a few years now. I use them for lots of things, but it never seems to make a dent in the pile. So here's yet another attempt to use several of my leaf print batiks and I actually think my pile went down quite a bit for this one. I'm still working out the details of it and some of the things are just pinned together but I'm liking what I see so far.

Neon anyone?

Here's how the balloon wreath looks in neon. My daughter decided she wanted to join me in my class and she chose to do her balloon in neon and I liked hers the best out of all of them.
