Birdbrains & Triptychs
Finally, here's my offering for this week's Fluffy Fatbottom Twisted Tuesday Challenge (and it's almost Tuesday again, yikes). The theme was "bird brain" and I played (mentally) with a number of ideas before I got to this one. The word and thought bubbles are a little cramped, but otherwise, I do like it. Don't know what I'm going to do when I run out of those alphabet beads, though - really must get some more!
And here are two sets of triptych inchies for Inching Artists - I showed the Rose ones yesterday, I know, but thought I'd show them again as I decided to mount and frame them. The others, the "dream" triptych, I particularly like, and I think both will make nice gifts for someone...not sure who yet!
I also finished making the rest of the lotto blocks today - that's six in total. But I can't show them until Thursday (and I must remember to do it on Thursday - knowing me, I'm bound to forget by then). And made a little sleeve for my quilt for quiltswap 4, which I need to get in the post - will sew the sleeve on tonight and try to get the quilt off tomorrow or Tuesday - I had debated waiting and sending it from the US, but decided in the end to try it from here - the last one got to its destination just fine.
And finally, a little seasonal decoration - I got this last year in the US - I loved the idea of a ghost in a quilt instead of the traditional sheet. Though if one of my kids cut eyeholes in one of my quilts...
