A busy week...

Made these little fiber necklaces for Syd's Queen of ARts show this up coming weekend. I've got a busy week ahead....making stuff for the Queen show (Fri, Sat. and Sun.) also I have a commission to do all the Christmas tree decorations for one of my favorite stores and galleries, Just Folk...and my husband's mother has a big birthday party on Sunday in Los Angeles..she turns 85 and everyone is coming to celebrate...all her kids (11) plus their kids and even great, great, grandchildren.
So today I got started on some of the tree garlands for Just Folk. I used some vintage quilt scraps given to me, ironed on some Wonder Under for strength and sewed away all day. I managed to make 10 garlands. Now to do a Dove tree topper and lots of fun folksey fiber ornaments...I'm thinking mushrooms, houses, birds, hearts, pigs, stars, and what else? Ideas welcome!
I'm still unpacking from Artfiberfest! Been home a week and had to jump right back into all the motherly duties....but I still can see all the wonderful faces of fellow fiber artists and look forward to 2009 to see everyone again and make more fun stuff!
