Almost through April...sewing and baking...prom time too!

My grandson (who made his first soccer goal...and then played goalie...)


asked for an outfit...Naturo, some kind of Ninja anime character...

So I set to work to collect some orange durable, but inexpensive fabric(s).,,and to find a pattern which I could adapt...

Cut and get it to him before he outgrows it....

He got it today....and I got this photo!

Looks like it fits!


Granddaughter went to junior prom...beautiful!


I tried a recipe for Japanese cheesecake....

Soft as a cloud, but still has the cream cheese, butter and egg taste! Oh, and I used coconut flour so it is gluten free! Not too sweet, either!



This quilt came back from Sonja Koch the long arm quilter!

It is for my great nephew, Lane also a junior in high school! Blocks were started by Mom. Lane is her first great grandchild!


Check my painting blog to see how I am struggling to do a double portrait....her is a rough sketch...

And a background....

April art times! And recap of life!!!!

This is now finished and hanging in my studio! Influenced by artist Faith Ringgold!

I am working to add patchwork and stitching on this art piece too!
Using a sashiko needle, I am able to embellish the painting with per level cotton stitches!
The patchwork border will come later...
This week I have been able to do other art too!
Friends came and we did watercolor....
Featuring a fabulous tulip bouquet from the local farmer's market.

Moving from watercolor to acrylics ....
These are finished now....?...I think!

And 2 smaller ones...which may still see some finishing!

The store where I have a part time job is I will have even more art and creative time.

I have plenty of fabric, and am making scrappy quilts and quilt tops for various family members and for charity!

And sewing for grandchildren!
Sophie in a dress I made!

moving towards grey hair....saving $$$$ as we are on Social Security!
I thank God for my many dear friends, especially those with whom I share such good times!
With Karen at a birthday for Tracie!
With Gayle and her granddaughters, friends Sally and Liz, at a French restaurant in Carthage, MO.
April is great, and today is friend Sally's birthday!
Our lilacs...on a windy day!
Hope to be back with more good things soon!
