We hit the road, dog included, for a weekend away to visit my parents.
This is their view, inspirational, right?
That's why I enjoy working on something creative while we visit. Another reason, Grace gets plenty of attention from her grandparents, my husband is usually off on a kayak adventure and I am free to do as I please without distraction.
Taking a quick break from Grace's Halloween costume, I decided to spend some time embroidering. I love the art of embroidery. In efforts to try and impress my talented husband, I embroidered a cityscape of Chicago. I am still not sure what I am going to do with it but I had a lot of fun making it.
I saw a free motion quilting tutorial that blew me away from crescendoh. Since I was spending the weekend with the Queen of Quilts, I thought it was an appropriate craft to try this weekend. I loved the idea she had of using a mason jar.
To get the blue glass effect, water color pencils and a paint brush. You should check out her tutorial. I love when you try something new and it's a success.
Could you imagine what I would be inspired to do, if I had a view like this?
