Linking at the River

It's linky Tuesday with Free Motion by the River!   Today is an exciting day for me!!!  I have my first two Blog finishes!!!  Since joining this wonderful community, I have been {happily} overwhelmed with inspiration. I have started 10 new projects and jump between them like a busy bee.   Well, I have been focusing in as much as possible and finished two projects!

I am going to my first guild meeting on Saturday and I made this bag to carry my machine. I have a matching messenger bag in the works to carry fabric and supplies.  Lots of yummy little pockets and everything.

My second finish is my Hearts and Feathers.  I think I will add little triangles and hang it somewhere, but it has binding and for now is finished.  My next Trapunto, I will use water soluble thread. The thread build up here got out of control, but I don't think it takes anything from my first attempt.  How's that for positive, and crushing my OCD subconscious?

AND my last Tuesday news, and the best part:  We adopted two cats from our local Humane society.  I have wanted some kitties for a long time but had waited, knowing we were moving. Well, now being all settled in our new home, it was time!!   Here's a peek at "Queen" Eva and Slick.

Not the best photos, but more to come. lol   Have a happy Tuesday everyone!


  1. I love your bag and your trapunto is just beautiful - something I have never attempted. Have fun with the new kitties!
