The Hamster Wheel

     Yes, I am on one this week. Hustling around trying to get the computer situation fixed. My computer guy is very disorganized and has cost me lots of extra time. Customer satisfaction is everything these days...Take care of the customer seems very easy, doesn't it? One more trip back today to return something and then three will be working. I might cave and go for the big Apple for myself after this fiasco. And then my lab is sick and at the vet-she ate a cake on the front seat of my car-homemade and a gingerbread cake. Silly things -that as the vet says-she does this every December. Must not like how busy I am.

     So, very little time has been spent on quilts. I have been hand stitching on my crinkle quilt. Pieces pulled



for something like this.


. Basting done for #5 which needs to be done before Christmas.



 I think #6 and #7 might be for the week after Christmas unless a huge chunk of time opens up. Haven't given up yet. And trying some more screen printing.  Screens from Lynne Krawczyk.




     Definitely addictive.15-30 minute bits of time in my studio.

     I am going to put some of these threads in my Etsy shop as several people have requested that I dye some for them. But I will put them here first. Two batches:

     The first one is Fire and consists of 5 skeins of hand dyed DMC embroidery thread- 10$.


              


The second is my favorite is :  Spring Sky 5 skeins of hand dyed embroidery thread-10$.      

             

Great for hand stitching on your art quilts. E-mail me if you would like them. If not they will be on Etsy tomorrow.

Whew -the weekend is almost here!

Be creative, my friends.

ADD: Hand dyed thread is sold- more to come in my Etsy shop.

  3. The prints look great! :) They are a nice way to sneak in some art time without big commitment.

    I LOVE the Fire floss - is it still available??
