bye bye

It's the last week of summer vacation, and we're heading where we'll hopefully find a bit of non-liquid sunshine and get to stuff our faces with Dixie's and ShiskaBerries. Yep, we're taking our annual trip to see the Red Sox play against the Mariners at Safeco Field! I also get to hang out with the fabulous Krista, otherwise known as lolablueocean. Woo hoo! She's a long arm quilting genius, so I'll be taking her a huge beast of a quilt top to work her magic on. It's a wedding gift for my brother in law and his new wife.


It's a sneak peek only, because I've got no time to figure out how to hang this thing up. I've got to pack! I spent the weekend running and painting, not getting ready for time away.

Speaking of painting, I figured it was time to combine my love of sewing with encaustics, so I played with thread and fabric in my latest pieces:



Fun, right? Have a great week!

Krista, I LOVE that second encaustic. I'm so glad to see that you are making them again.

Your paintings are amazing!!! I wish I could join you in Seattle to make a Krista sandwich, but sadly I just can't make it work this week. Have a wonderful time and you two can hug each other from me!!
