So, here is the update of where I am on my Blogger BOM. I got the sashing done...then I needed to decide how to set the quilt. I am a huge Kaffe Fassett fan.....so I thought I would go scrappy all around the quilt.......hmmmm....I am feeling like the blocks are lost in all that color...........
....then I decided to go with yellow Kaffe to set the quilt.... better.....but, the room this quilt is going to hang in is lime green....and I think the yellow and lime green will just not work for me.......
....and here is the top on my lawn:):) I really like it.
Now ...I'm off to work on the backing, layering, and quilting:):)
Thanks for dropping by
Much love- Sandie

Yep....I definitely like the cornerstones a lot!!!!
I didn't have enough blocks for this lay out...I was one block short....so, one of my favorite Kaffe's became the center of this quilt:))
.....and I'm decided to show you that I can never seem to quilt just one quilt at a time!!!! I always have at least two quilts I'm sewing at the same time.
These little baskets made it into the mix of my sewing the BOM together today!! So, when I am done sewing this top together...these little blocks will be done , and any other project I want to throw in the mix:):) That's me...always the multitasking queen :):)
Well, that is what I was up to today!!!
Hope ya'll had a great creative day:):)
Much love- Sandie

I thought I would show you some of my journal pages..... above is a doodle I did watching TV. Then I used watercolors to make it bright.
I got some scraps from my friend in Denmark...Pia Diem. I took her scraps and made this journal page:):)
...and then my friend from down under...sent me scraps from her desk...and I made this journal page with those left over scraps:):)
This is what I started with .... next I will add color!!
Ta-Da....The doodle was also Jane's..... I used to make this page with all the scraps.
Hope you all have enjoyed a climpse into my art journals:):)

I decided to make myself a new art piece for my studio. I love this saying...
Take Pride In How Far You Have Come...
And Have Faith In How Far You Can Go!!
I used lots of layers ...paper, paints, spray inks, molding paste, and glitter.
I used my baby photo:) I was 7 months old in this photo.
I was such a HAPPY BABY :):)
I found the lime green frame at Sweet Salvage. I have had it for a while...and finally found a piece I can use it with:):) Very happy with the results:):):)
Sorry..I haven't been around last week...I was hit hard with a super bad cold!!!!
I am doing much better now...and completely on the mend:):)
Hope ya'll have a great week
Much Love- Sandie

Decided I needed a new vacation pin quilt as I filled up my last one. I have had this Bali pop sitting around for forever..so no time like the present:):)
I thought I would just sew them together in strip form...boring!!!
...so squares looked better for me:):)
...the top.... still a little boring...hmmm, what can I do......
A little wonky on the edges...YES!!!!
I decided to free hand my quilting
...making flowers with the Clover flower maker....
....close up of the flowers and some of my pins....
....I am really happy with this new quilt :):)
Hope you all have a week
