What do you do with Scraps?

What do you do with scraps from making journal books? The scraps are thin, so you make them into little treasure slices for art greeting cards. I've attached the scraps to double sided fusible.

Sliced them in approximately 2 inch chunks.

Fused them to the front face of cards made from card stock.

Pair with a nice envelope.

Share your art with a friend.

First Friday Artist Reception

Friday the 2nd of September my fiber art pieces were on display at a local gallery that I'm a co-op member of. I was fortunate to be able to share the art that I love to make. The audience was on the small side but they were very interested in my process. Thank you Art Market 63 for hosting my event.

I have examples of my fiber art for sale at this location.

Pipers First Quilt to go to a Quilt Show

Miss Pipers quilt "Piper's First Panto" is going to the Machine Quilters Expo in Springfield. This is going to be her first quilt to travel to a show. Today is also her first day back to school, 3rd grade, after summer vacation. The MQX show is a great show to see quilting friends, take classes at, enjoy the beautiful quilts, and experience a lovely city.

Piper is rather pumped over the idea of sending the quilt, but for her world, she's more excited about gifting it to her friend. Sending it is vague but the gifting is real for her. She is 8 and most of her day revolves around what she can do that is fun.

This is a good experience for her and a motivator for me to keep her on a project when she is visiting me. I try to be a good grandmother.
