Here is a fun way to display your art collages.
Flags to tie together for bunting.
I made them 2 layers with a linen look cotton on the front and muslin on the back. I sewed a strip of muslin across the top, leaving about 4 or 5 inches hanging on the ends to tie flags together with.
Then had a little fun with paper and lace to decorate a flag... (yes I only did one). I spent the rest of my time making up more blank flags.
I'm listing sets of 5 blank flags on etsy that are ready to be decorated and tied together.
If you sew, try making some flags - easy peasy!
Yay for time off work to sew!!!

This is one of my favorite poems -
"Climb the mountains and get their good tidings. Nature's peace will flow into you as sunshine... The winds will blow their own freshness into you, and the storms their energy, while cares will drop off like autumn leaves. ~John Muir
I stitched it onto the muslin stripes on this autumn colored wall hanging.
Click for closer view. I listed it on etsy, there are more pictures there.
Best of all, in the corners are fabulous fabric covered push-pins made by Kathy over at Paper Pumpkin. I love them for hanging wall quilts with!

Just finished up a project I've been working on for a while...
It's a very detailed quilted wall hanging - all natural tones, full of roses and hearts, birds, flowers, and words. One large patch has the Bible verse "love is patient, love is kind..."
Fun to make, a lot of work. Maybe I'll do a whole lap quilt similar to it one day, maybe not. For now this one is on etsy.
Have a great day!

We spent Saturday with some good friends in Park City. Rode the six-pack chair lift to the top, and hiked half way down.
At half way point we got on the Alpine slide and rode little plastic carts down the slide to the bottom.
Ended up at Wasatch Brewery for lunch and brew. A brief storm of rain and hail passed over reminding us we were in the mountains and that Winter will soon arrive. Awesome day.

Persuasion was Jane Austen's last completed novel.
Persuasion of the heart.
I thought it was a good title on a fabric art journal,
ready to be filled with persuasive pretties.
I'm searching for a new title.

I sewed a stack of fabric books out of quilted muslin.
Full of quilted pages to decorate.
So soft. Even cuddly.
My husband (who has the mind of an artist only if looking at the paint on a Harley Davidson) says, "These are really cool, but..."
"but you're making something that won't sell. What are people going to do with them? Staple things to the pages? Use a magic marker and write on the pages?"
I wasn't hurt.
I know that textile artists will know what to do with my books.
Have a happy weekend!
