I Know, I know....

Nothing new in almost a week. I've been regrouping (and shopping!) I've got 7 things in the works right now and had to do some planning, sketching and preparing -- which doesn't always make for the best content or photographs. But -- here are some photographs of my "purchasing" trip to perk your interest. Most of these fabrics are Island Batiks, with a few Kaffee Fassett and Modas thrown in for fun. The batiks are just gorgeous !
Oh and -- if you see your name on this list (other than Leslie because her fabric is not pictured here) chances are -- you may get a glimpse of your present in it's "BEFORE" stage!!!
Here's what's in the works:

1. Sonoma Valley Art quilt for my lovely sister in law, Leslie - fabric has been purchased, washed, ironed and ready to go. Ovesized copies made and now I'm sketching and making templates for the design elements;

2. My Iris slice - The background has been painted and flower pieces have been cut out. I'm now ready to affix the flowers and begin painting in details with Tsukineko ink and acrylic paint;

3. Wurzerl's (Renate) Echanacea - sketching and designing in process;
4. Wild Girl's trade - fabric purchased today and is in process of being painted, stamped, etc.
5. Sabrina's dress for the art show - silk dupioni tapastry print this time

6. Aunt Nancy's birthday present (the details of which I cannot disclose because she visits here)

7. A surprise for a friend - fabric purchased today and is being painted and cut - and (the details of which I cannot disclose because she visits often!!)

Here's what needs to be in the works -- soon:
1. Sabrina's art teacher's "Pop Art" tote bag;
2. MIL's 80th birthday present;
3. Sal's "Ocean" duvet cover

(FYI - All of the fabric above was purchased at my favorite local quilt shop - Wish Upon a Quilt. AND, lucky you -- for those who don't live in the Raleigh/Wake Forest area -- they have an internet store with 100's maybe even 1000's of bolts of fabric. Here's the link: Wish Upon A Quilt)

WUAQ is one of my favorite internet stores! I hope to visit the real store some day. Are you going to be at Mid-Atlantic Quilt Festival in Hampton later this month?

It looks like you have been having a lot of fun! And have a lot on your plate coming up. I look forward to seeing how the projects progress.

I found you through a comment you left for Vicki. I've enjoyed reading through a lot of your postings and seeing your work.

I see you are also a member of Fiber Arts/Mixed Media. Your "button" didn't work for me and I couldn't find you in the members list. I'd like to invite you to be "a friend" on my list.
