Etsy Shop update

I've listed several originals in my etsy shop.

I also finished the paintings for my sister in law, Erica, and she chose hers, the more colorful one, and hurray, I got to keep my favorite for myself. They are inspired very heavily by a painter who I admire, very very much.

My latest busy-ness

I have the twelve sailboat blocks done on the Sailing, Sailing baby quilt for our new baby that's coming. Right now his name is Harley, but it keeps changing. I have to make about 27 more 3x3" pinwheels and then I can sew it all together. I can see now why people like piecing. I appeals to my sense of order, somehow. It might be because the rest of my life is so chaotic, I like sewing those perfect little pieces of cut fabric together.
Dave and I bought a 25' 5th wheel trailer yesterday. It is a 1988, so it was not very expensive and I am SO excited. It needs a little work, but it is so cozy and I think we will be having loads of fun with it soon. Maybe I will post when we get the work done. I want to make new curtains, and maybe put a pergo floor in. Turquoise and Orange curtains and pillows I am thinking... I have not told Dave yet. :) But mostly I just want to go camping with him at the ocean with the dogs. Pure heaven!
I am also working on some paintings for my sister-in-law, Erica, and I hope she likes them. I do love trees.

My Doll from Jane's Class

You may have noticed the link to the right for Jane DesRosier's cloth and clay doll class. I just completed my first doll. There are things I love about Primrose, (my doll) and things I don't love, but it was an absolutely fun experience to take the online class. I highly recommend it. I have two more in the works, and hope to improve my skills as I go.

Paintings for Shared Housing Services Auction

Kelsi was asked to donate paintings for an auction happening tonight, and we worked on them together. There is a dinner and auction at Canterwood Golf Club, where the paintings will be available.

We really had fun working on them and thinking about what a neat service shared housing is. They find people who need help living at home and put them together with people who need a place to live.
