My crafting this summer has been in spurts. I've sketched a few days, but need to draw more regularly to see improvement.

What is anyone else working on? (And yes, organizing and cleaning your craft room is a good thing, too!)

Congratulations, F8CONE8 on your new awards for your quilt and your birdhouse! Thanks for posting!

Last week my 11-year-old granddaughter came for what we call "Nonna Camp." We studied Matisse, visited a museum with a Matisse exhibit, and she worked on several collages on canvas. She completed one piece and is anxious to come back to finish the others.
Such fun to do arts and crafts with children!

Does cleaning the summer junk that was stored in my shop count?
I spent most of the day clean out things like a chain saw and motor oil out of my shop. Now I can work in it. emoticon

March is National Craft Month! So what are you crafting this month?

This event was designated by the Craft and Hobby Association to help retailers promote their craft businesses and to get more people involved in regularly doing a hobby that they enjoy.
Here's the link to see all the promotional materials that the C&HA provides for retailers -- which I thought was interesting and very well conceived.

What kinds of crafts are you working on right now? I've been pretty much at a stand-still for the past few weeks, but I hope to work on my altered book some this week-end.

I just finished covering some of my plants outside for the hard freeze that we're supposed to get tonight. Brought other plants in the house to keep them safe.

Now I'm ready to go work in my altered book. I'm taking a year-long online class from Lisa Vollrath, and I need to get started!

My youngest grandson turned 7 this week, and today I'm going down to his birthday celebration -- a fishing party. I know that my son-in-law will be grilling hot dogs, so I'm trying to decide if I'll take something else to eat or just go ahead and have a good ol' hot dog. I don't eat them often, so I may just treat myself today. (Plus a small portion of birthday cake!)

Does anyone else ever feel like September is the start of a new beginning? Maybe it has something to do with the slight change in weather, because I don't have any ties to the new school year anymore.

Somehow I woke up on September 1 with a new mindset and renewed motivation to get healthier and lose more weight.

Snowy weather is a great time to be working on that quilt top, and it's so good that you're trying to get it done way ahead of time. I bet your group sells lots of raffle tickets!

I'm itching to do some crafts today, but so far I've been bogged down in paperwork and volunteer duties for my Master Gardener organization. Every now and then I've been taking a break and working on some tags for my gratitude journal.

How is the work with your kiln going, PICKLEMIRE?

I've been neglecting my art journals for the past couple of weeks. I did make another SoulCollage last week, and to stay on my self-imposed schedule I need to complete another one by Thursday.

I learned how to run the kiln. I went home turned it on and ran it through a cycle. Blew every fuse in the house. I now know that the kiln has to be the only thing on in the shed. To do this I must run it at night only. Ran it through the second time just to get all fume out, then the third time just to dry the molds. Can't run it tonight to cold. It won't heat the shed by its self. It emoticon should be warm enough for fusing by Thursday. Will post pictures if all goes well.

Still working on cleaning up that mess in my guest room. My daughter did not come because my 6-year-old grandson came down with the flu. (He's okay now.)

Hopefully I'll finish getting all the Christmas decorations up this week-end -- and clean up that room!

Last night one of my daughters called and asked if she could come spend the night Tuesday night after shopping late so that she could get up the next morning and go again to finish her shopping. So I'm rushing around today trying to get all my Christmas gifts wrapped and off of the guest room bed. It's buried!

Just got back from a benefit auction where I purchased a lawn mower. For the past 10 years I've been having my small lawn mowed by a local company, but I need to save money (and exercise!) by doing it myself. Now I guess I don't have any excuses!

Popcorn Yea! I like my with just a shake of seasoning salt. Or a whole lot of white chocolate with peanuts.
Was discussing the food piramid with workout instructor. I think hers is wrong. She said there was NO CHOCOLATE food group. Do I have the wrong piramid? Mine also has Krispy Creme Dounuts on it too. The chocolate dounuts are on the very bottom of mine.

That IS a nightmare!

Had a great time last night. Granddaughter's softball game was postponed until tonight, so after the graduation ceremonies we all met my daughter-in-law and two grandsons for dinner. Got to see all the grandchildren after all.

I ate a salad and some baked fish over pasta. Didn't eat too much of the pasta, so I did fine.
Have been on a popcorn kick this afternoon...

I have three grandsons and two granddaughters. Granddaughter number 2 turned 9 years old yesterday. I'm going down to see them tonight for my 5 year-old grandson's graduation from pre-school, my 11 year-old granddaughter's softball game, and to take the 9 year-old her birthday gifts. Hope to see the other two grandsons, also. They are the loves of my life!

Same here! Mulitmillionare. My oldest could not live with my rules. So I told her she was free to go, but she had to live with someone I knew. She spent a week with one or another sister even a neice. It took living with my dad for her to understand why she had rules. Daddy was a cop. I have seen some pictures no one should ever see. I also know both uses for a tire iron.
My extend family is growing fast. Neice just had baby girl number one friday, great neice is in labor now. Daugther number one is due in Nov. Twins and I think they are both boys. This means 5 boys in the house. Ages 12,10, 4. emoticon

I haven't done long stitching so I looked it up. I rather like it especially if you use a design. That may be just the ticket.

You got that right. You know I was working on a quilt and it just wasn't right so.... I took it apart and redid it I am much happier. I am making this on for my bed which is unusual. I usually just give them away. All I have left is to quilt the bugger. It is a queen so I'm not sure if I want to stitch in the ditch or hand tie or... hand quilt. Not sure my hands will let me hand quilt.

Been working on stained glass for craft show in Oct. But the most fun I am having is making the two baby quilts for new grandchildren due in Nov. First born daughter is having twins. Still don't know sex but, do know which quilt pattern I am making. Then their big brother is moving to a big bed so I am making him his big bed. This quilt is pictures of "John Deere" equipment. Good thing there is a dealer just down the road. All I do is take a picture of the John Deere then up load it to my computer then print out the picture right on the cloth. This is so much fun and easy. Only need 4 more implements and I can start quilting. House work does suffer. But I never read an ephitat that said " I wish my house was cleaner." emoticon

Today is the frist day of the rest of your life make it count.

Sorry for the house work. But crafting sounds fun. My mother used to say she couldn't have a house keeper come in until she cleaned the whole house. emoticon

Thanks. I thought I would work on some crafts, but didn't get a chance while he was here. I don't remember when I've worked so hard! For instance, when he moved out the washer and dryer to paint the laundry room, the mess underneath those was downright embarrassing. So I had to hurry, hurry, hurry to get it scrubbed out so that he could finish working. Washed bedroom curtains by hand, cleaned windows, washed knick-knacks and vacuumed under furniture in my bedroom when he painted in there. I thought my house was pretty clean until we started moving everything!

He left this morning, so McJulieO and another friend came this afternoon for our weekly craft playday. We worked on several crafts and had a nice afternoon drinking hot tea and watching it rain.

Speaking of rain -- we're finally getting a steady rain here in South Texas this week. We're still in the drought stages, so this rain is wonderful.
The handyman got the outside trim on my house painted before the rains came. It's amazing what a difference fresh paint can make!
