Stepping away from the sewing room this morning, I took a bracelet-making class at Urban Arts & Crafts here in KC. It was a simple, mindless activity but loads of fun! Stringing beads is as Zen-like as chain-piecing, I do believe! I love beads almost as much as fabric and thread. Mostly I stitch them on fabric but occasionally like to make a piece of jewelry.
Here are some redwork blocks I have been working on at "TV Time". I was a MAJOR fan of paperdolls when I was a li'l girl. I could spend hours and hours changing their outfits and making up stories for them to live out! I don't think little girls play with paperdolls anymore. Sad. Such a fun way to stretch creativity.
And last, the third block of the Farmer's Market BOM over at Pat Sloan's Yahoo group, Blue Ribbon Pies. I love pumpkin and DH loves strawberry--so there you have it!
It was so sad to hear of Pavarotti's death. That is one of those names I've heard all my life. Such a talent. Though I'm not an opera buff, hearing his amazing voice could bring tears to my eyes and chills down my spine. You always wonder who will take the place of a legend such as Pavarotti.
