|A wall hanging for the studio!|
Yes, there really are 156 blocks made from 312, 1/2 square triangles on the mini-quilt
in the background ..... each mini-quilt block measuring just under 1/2 inch.
This project....such reflection....who was the easy part...Me.
You can call me Beulah, the nickname my husband gave me...He got the name from books we used to read our children when they were small. (His nickname is Hank, from the same book series...."Hank the Cowdog" written by John R. Erickson.)

When:There are nights I will suddenly awake from sound sleep and head to the studio to tackle the next creative adventure! Yet, I prefer to do most of my work during 'normal' daylight hours and like to get started as soon as possible...right after a giant mug of hot tea....actually, that mug is a quart sized antique mason jar. I LOVE hot tea!
Where:Our house is a full time studio, no where is safe! Any surface is 'fair game' when it comes to creating! I do try to keep the messy adventures confined to the garage and the sewing upstairs...keyword...try.
Why:I just can't help myself...like I said above, my brain is constantly 'in gear'! Many of my ideas come at the oddest times, triggered by random events, conversations, sermons, dreams...all of which are scribbled down, tucked away in journals as I plot and plan.
After all, "I'm a Little .... Creative".
Today's schedule for your enjoyment!
