Harry Potter Quilt

I wanted to make a gift for my youngest daughter. Mind you,that I haven’t really sewn in a year.I  have been collecting Harry Potter fabric.

I decided  to make her a quilt. She is also a Harry Potter fan.Since,she loves Slytherin,I figured why not.I figured that,if I got it done early it would be her Christmas gift.

I was kind of funny,because she saw me sewing this quilt the whole time. She has no idea it is for her.I took me about a week to complete it. The back of the quilt is fleece.I decided no to add batting.

Paintings #3 & #4

I had two paintings that I started.At first,I wasn’t into them and I stopped.I was getting frustrated.

So, today on my day off.I went to my job and gotten some more brushes. Plus, white paint ,because I use the paint cover the canvas.Especially, when I am not into the painting.

This particular painting ,I really enjoyed working on. It is more of an Autumn type theme.

Finished Painting

I am finally finished my painting…I am pretty happy with the results..

I am glad that I waited for daylight to finish it.I also noticed that my stress level is going down.

This from last night before I lost daylight.I thought the painting needed something

As you can see it looked so plain without any scenery.

Inspiration

Today started as a semi normal day at work…it was very busy

After work,I did some shopping and got more canvas and paints.I decided to watch some Bob Ross..

Then it hit me…my inspiration…I decided on a different type of painting.I am not a landscape type of person,but I am trying…

It isn’t done yet…I have to get more colors and different brushes.Not bad for a first try.

Masks

Remember when I said that I had no desire to sew…Guess who’s sewing …I am!! Since there a virus outbreak.I started making masks for my family

I guess this the best therapy ever.It is helping me get through my feelings.I got some help from my oldest daughter.

Feeling lost

It has been a long time since I have posted anything…

In May, it will be a year when I lost my Dad.I go to work and come home .I totally lost my passion to sew.I feel so lost.I have so many ideas in my head,but my mind,body and my heart won’t connect.Is it normal to feel this way? I have so many projects and fabric around . I won’t budge to touch it.It is bad enough to work in a fabric and craft store and have more ideas pop in my head.
