Feb. 21,2007

I have been working on my quilting. I have made progress with the quilt in the hoop, even was able to move the hoop yesterday. So now it is one circle closer to being done. Have also made a few more postcards and ACEO's. I feel my work is improving. I have hung up the ones I have completed in the coffee shop, took down some of the Valentines and replaced them with my new work. I still have a few to replace so I will be working towards that this week. My art reception will be this coming Monday evening, Feb. 26th from 6-8. My friend Marcie and I will be working on it together. She is such a great friend!! She loves to entertain so this is right up her alley!!

Yesterday I finished up a couple of postcards. Took them in town to show to a friend, then I went by Donkey Coffee. I saw that another one of my Valentines sold. So since one of the cards I had with me was one for Valentines I replaced the one that sold. When I got home I realized I hadn't taken a picture of it:( So when talking to another friend on the phone about it he told me to make more, what a new concept. I had always just done one of a kinds before. So I made another one, I think the quilting is better on the original though. So the postcard with the family of kitties is the one I made another one of. It is a cutie!

I tried my hand at ACEO's for the first time the other day. As you can see I finished 4 of them. What fun!! I am trying to learn something new each month. January was finally working with angelina fibers which I am still having fun with. For Feb. it will be ACEO's. I hope to get a few more finished before the end of the month!! As you can see by the photos I also am doing more postcard quilts. I most likely will be back and forth on what I make. My show comes down on the 3rd. After that I hope to have lots to put in my etsy store.

Yesterday I had the day off and was finally able to work on my quilts. I quilted on the one in the hoop for a few hours and also created a few postcard quilts. I will finish them up this morning before work and take photos. It has been so cold in my sewing room that I moved my ironing board and my sewing machine into a warmer room so I could work on my art. This month so far I haven't been doing much. Was hoping that the weather would break so I wouldn't have to move things around, finally got tired of waiting. So hopefully for the remainder of the month I will be getting something accomplished.

BRRRR!!!! We are having a cold snap. Which makes my sewing room alittle too cold to work in. I have to keep the door closed because my kitties would wreck havoc with my fabrics. With the door closed the heat doesn't get to the room, all I have is a space heater which even though it is trying to do its job it is just too cold out. Needless to say I haven't gotten much done for the past week.
I have done some hand quilting on the quilt I have been working on, and also rehung some of the quilts at the coffee shop. They look better now.
I will get back to my smaller projects as soon as the weather breaks. I did buy a computer desk at a local thrift this past week, so when I get my computer moved onto it I will have another nice size work table to use for my creations!! Hopefully I will do that tomorrow since I have the day off of work. Later

Well, I am in month two of my art daily group. In January I got quite a bit done, several Valentine quilted postcards, a couple of birthday quilted postcards started, a new quilt top, completed 2 quilt tops and repaired one. Plus hung my quilts at the local coffee shop. Not bad for one month!! I am happy with my results so far this year.
Yesterday I even started back up on quilting on the quilt that has been in the hoop. My goal is to have that completed by the end of this month.

About Me

Name: Attack of the Vintage
About Me: Hi! I am a fiber artist tryig to work on my art everyday of 2007. With doing this I hope my art will evolve and I will learn many new techniques this coming year. My goal is to be able to make my living doing my fiber arts. I also make my own earrings when I have a need of a new pair. I am an avid brick collector and belong to International Brick Collectors Association. I try to attend at least one brick swap a year to share my bricks and to collect new ones from all over the country. I am currently working on a hugh brick walk and patio. Gardening is another love of mine, my yard is getting rather funky in my yard decorating. I go for the unusaul and people come out my way to see what I have added each year. Last summer was green beer bottles for the flower bed edging and bowling ball towers. I have no idea what I will be adding this coming summer.
