I have a folder of photos labeled “Blog Pictures” 2016. Throughout the year I put pictures in it that have no other home. Many Fridays I know exactly what I want to do a post on. On the Fridays where my mind can’t settle on something specific, I go to the Blog Pictures file. I scroll through them and jot down the numbers of any photos that catch my eye. Then I plug them into the post and look again. I rearrange a few and take out a few. This weeks pics had a recurring theme: color. Specific colors, golden pear to blushing magenta. Take a look.
This year was the most prolific for the berries on my Pyracantha bush.
I “saw a squirrel” below. Quick idea for cold nights or aching muscles. Make your own rice packs (sew a muslin pocket and add uncooked rice, then stitch opening closed). The plain muslin isn’t so nice. I cut the sleeves off a t-shirt (please notice the pyracantha berry color)and cut off the excess sleeve (black lines), sewed it to fit and voila, see below.
I made two. The hem of the sleeve I kept and use it as the opening. Heat these puppies up (in the microwave)and place them in your bed 15 minutes before your head hits the pillow. Ahhh, “berry” warm. O.K. crafting break over.
I rearranged my Kaleidoscope quilt on my banister and saw new squares that had been hidden. Wild and crazy is this quilt. I love it.
And then there is Polymer clay. Sandra Bruce taught me and it’s just like quilting and sewing Art to Wear, I can’t get enough of it. I want to make something like this piece.
Ohh, my goodness. Is this quilt Spiralicious or what!!?
I had just washed this exquisite pear and had to take a picture of it before slicing it up for dinner. Again, the color and shape, yummy.
Check out this way cool fiber jewelry piece. Golden pear again.
