I have challenged a group of my fiber art friends to do a Sweet Sixteen project. Since it is Sweet Sixteen this year (2016) I thought it would be fun! Feel free to join in if you are interested. Leave me a comment (make sure that you are not set to no-reply) The rules are simple. Make something (fiber arty) that has 16 in it. It could be one piece that has sixteen fabrics, a shawl with sixteen sections, sixteen art quilts, 16"x16", etc. Whatever says Sweet Sixteen to you! Due December 31, 2016. My theme is that I am doing a monthly piece that is 16"x 16". Each month will be focused on a color. I combined it with my Quilt Keepers challenge, using the orange batik as my pebbles.

I have been preparing for Pie Plate Patterns Super Spring Retreat. They are a mother/daughter design team who live in a small town 15 miles Northwest of my small town. It is a fun retreat! A nice thing for them to do for the local quilting community. And bonus! This year it is opening on my birthday!
I have relisted my patterns for sale on Craftsy. I am not set up to handle VAT, so if you are in the EU and wish to purchase a pattern, please do so at my Etsy shop, they handle VAT on instant download patterns. Thank you.
We were down in Kanab last weekend and there was a Hot Air Balloon Fest. What fun! I have never seen balloons up close while they are filling and launching. I would never go up in one, I have a fear of heights, but it was exciting to see all the bright colors floating near the red rock cliffs.
|Looks like fun!|
