My studio has literally spilling stuff outside of it that needs a new home. When a box of my fabric arrived from Spoonflower, it was time stop sewing, sketching and reading so that I could update my Etsy shop. I have made up additional fabric bundles and listed 17 art quilts for sale.

Fat quarters of the small handwriting print and additional art quilts will be posted soon.

I like the hearts on her cheeks.

The portraits on the wall are fun!

Thank you all for the suggestions on what the girls in my unfinished sketches are doing. I am still mulling over which ideas I like best and I have to get over my fear of messing up the sketches as they now.

Congratulations to Norma who will receive a few sketches to paste into her journal.

My Fluffy kitty got sick last weekend. On Wednesday she had surgery for an obstruction in her GI track.

As my doodling shows, I was worried about her.

Fluffy returned home on Thursday with instructions to not run or jump for 10 days while she heals.

Her bandage is off, she is eating and we are having a difficult time trying to convince her not to jump. Despite being 8 years old, she is all kitten.

While worrying about Fluffy this week, I found it difficult to make art quilts. Instead, I dove into piecing and quilting a queen size quilt.

I love Doctor Who and most sci-fi shows.
wpid-Sketch4-5-2014-07-18-21-29.jpg
I try to be my own cheerleader – it’s so much better to be happy than hard on myself.

When my allergies are bad, it’s not pretty.

Sometimes I feel like hiding away.
