Perfectly 'Back In Beads'...Again!

A few months ago I cleaned out the 'Bead Bins' and all that goes with making Jewelry!  Organized it, packed it up and took it all to my DIL.  I was through making jewelry!  Or so I thought!  Then on a whim I decided to pick up the Teenie Tiny crochet hooks and Super Skinny crochet thread and work on a pair of hoops that the finish had worn off.  Big Mistake!  One pair led to you guessed it...more!
  More hoops, more beads, more threads and more stuff to make more!!!
Aren't these peacock feather beads the bomb? 
Perfect for the 'Dream Catcher' hoops!
Perfect for 'Christmas Gifts' at my Shop!
Perfectly 'Back In Beads'...again!
On a Smaller Scale!
That Counts!


Back To Blog and Back To Quilts

I'm not even going to go there...there being the lack of attention this blog has had from it's 'Over Done Doer' also known as CollectInTexas Gal alias OverDoSue.  With that out of the way....
These are what's left of last years 'Plaid Pumpkins' and crocheted trivets.  There was a whole pumpkin patch of ones that sold...I don't know why these didn't.  I'm not sure how they survived to be my only October display.  I take that back...they are the only because I've been too involved in having a last ditch effort to 'Clear the Quilt Closets'.
Notice I said 'Closets'.  Not only several closets, but more than one rack and many walls.  It gets down to how many quilts can one person really use, need, collect, or give away to family.  Everyone is saturated.  Besides, for all the years of making and collecting quilts, I've had it in the back of my mind they were an investment.  So, the time has come to cash them in! 
Do you know how many people have asked "What's a Lay-A-Way"?
Isn't that a hoot?
After explaining to mostly Millenials and Generation XYZ or whatever they are know as now, and how in just a few weeks 'Winter is Coming'...they get that cause they too watched Game of Thrones...the quilts are selling out right and being 'Laid-A-Way'!  I just love it when a plan WORKS!

 I may have 'OverDone' my Facebook Quilt Show Blitz, but what they hey...It seems to have worked!  I basically have no shame....I even pulled in and played the Santa Card...HoHoHo!!!
And On It Goes!!!!


Seeking Shade in Sunny August

A cool shady spot has been difficult to come by this past July, but here I am in one spot of shade just a few feet from the door of my studio at The Chicken Farm Art Center.  By the way, it's where I've been most everyday in July for most of everyday.  Thank goodness I have an AC that keeps the studio cool. 
   So, now you know the main reason I've once again been an absent blogger. 
Maybe I'll be around more often in August!
