This past weeks creative endeavors...

This week and the last have been quite challenge with a lot of changes going on at my work which has sent me down to "my" room to work on my latest fabric as I call it and trying out something new with a soda can. I read somewhere and I am sorry I don't remember where I read it but, you can take a soda can and carefully cut it open (and wear gloves) and then you can use the aluminum for ummm what I did... I purchased a little kit called: Walnut Hollow Creative Metal Supplies - 8pc/Mini Tool Kit. I used one of the ball points to write Dream in the metal. I need to improve but not to bad for the first try. I have decided I need to learn to take better pictures of my work. I am loving how my fabric is turning out, can't wait to finish it to turn it into something.

Time to go cook some dinner for the hubby. Thanks for stopping by!


  1. Thanks for the tip on the Quilting Book. I ordered it today. That metal work looks fun. I need better pics too. I need to set something up outside. I notice that is what some bloggers do for better light. Terah

  2. I know I saw someplace on a video about cutting open pop cans and using the inside aluminum like you have and in other ways. I don't remember now either. Nice job!

    I love how bright and playful your fabric is.

    I hope the challenges and changes settle down a bit at work. Glad you have the crafts and art to fall into. It's so good for the soul, isn't it?

  3. Terah - you like it, it is a good book. I used to use it to teach a beginning quilt class when I had a shop.

    Rita - Thanks for coming buy and for the encouragement about work. Organizational changes are always so hard because the transition takes so long sometimes...

    You ladies have a great day!

  4. I love how your fabric is turning out, too.


  5. loving the fabric!
    can't wait to see more
