WHILE I'VE BEEN GONE

I have been in and out quite a bit lately. I mentioned that we have moved my mother-in-law into assisted living in Michigan. We are also going up there more often to clean out the house, and sort through years and years of stuff. I know many of you understand and it gives me comfort that we're not alone. Thanks for the emails and kind words.

But I left my collage pile out because I really, REALLY want to finish my collages. Here is the next one in the series. If you missed my last post, they go with these. One more and I will have actually finished a project for myself. They just might have a future in my entry.
.While I have been doing my thing, others have been doing things with my fabrics. Here are just a few for you to enjoy:


Have you seen this great tutorial on Sew4Home? They are one of my favorite home decor blogs (I bet I already told you that. I tend to repeat myself when I'm excited). They used my Woodland Delight fabrics and I can't tell you how badly I NEED THIS myself! Cool, huh?


Above is the Manhattan Soiree quilt using my Summer Soiree fabric for Michael Miller Fabrics in the current issue of Fons&Porter's Easy Quilts magazine. Complete instructions are included. Quilt and design by Marinda Stewart. Go check it out.





Here is another wall hanging version using my Summer Soiree fabric. Free downloadable instructions are available in the Spring 2010 online issue of AllPeopleQuilt.com. Quilt design and pattern by Marinda Stewart.

We are seeing hints of Spring here. Our 28th anniversary is this weekend and I so hope I can finally spend a little time with my man.

  1. Hi, Paula. Haven't stopped by to say hi in a while. I need to do something fun and new with some of your Woodland Delights fabrics... maybe some spring peep toes in grey bloom ;)

    Love your collages, they are the perfect mix of modern meets retro. So glad you are taking time to create :)

  2. Happy Anniversary! I am sorry to hear of the challenges you are facing with your Mother in Law. I hope you and your husband are getting some peaceful happy time together for your anniversary. I think your paintings are beautiful and probably a good way to deal with all that is going on, I imagine.

  5. Your collages are just BEAUTIFUL! I know,that was a later post, but after seeing the ironing board cover in this post I had to comment. Thank goodness I put back the one I was going to buy at Joann's yesterday because I never even thought about making my own! And now I have to go buy those fabrics too :) Twist my arm, another fabric purchase. Congrats in the annivetodersary!
