Bad headache tonight so no sewing; that SUCKS!

I did get one bag done for a friend though yesterday though.  We are still working on perfecting the design but it isn't bad for a practice run; I even made her a matching coupon pouch.  It is a little too big and I have to figure out how to get it to hold its shape better.  Other then that it looked great.  A few more of these and I should have this pattern perfected!

Also, I have a neat idea for some wall art.  I just got a cast iron bull head, I have named him Herman Blu, and its awesome-ness seems to be throwing off the balance of the space.  As I was told today, "You have all this girly stuff and then a masculine bull head?"  So, I thought of a great idea to do a "season" collage for under the masculine bull head.  It would be a picture of a cow and a tree in a field.  There would be a photo of the field in the summer, spring, fall and winter in a long line under the bull head. Very dramatic huh!?

Well, that it is.  I figured out a plan for a Disappering Nine Patch quilt this evening that I think I will start this weekend.

  1. As far as wall art I am suggesting a cow head like at Long Horn steak house. Can you post a pic of the Mr. Blu for us to see??
