I bought this pin kit last year at the houston quilt show. This was my first attempt at making beaded pins. I was pretty easy to make.

Free motion quilted keychains. The center of the flower was made with Husqvarna Vikings New Yarn Couching foot set. It looks really cool in person. Gives it a lot of texture.
Red Felted ATC "Art Girl" Left Over
Holiday Wreath ATC
Silly Halloween ATC
Could not resist making a few fabric ATC to trade at the Houston Quilt Show. They are more whimsical that I usually make but you have to go with what the muse dictates.
Name Badge Holder I made with left over hand-dyed Frieda Anderson fabric to wear to Husqvarna Viking Sew Fest and to the Houston International Quilt Show.

Suzie with Randy at Eerie Book Store Opening. Suzie loves to read horror books- her favorite author is Steven King. She gets a little scared watching the horror dvd's like SAW. Suzie kept her little purse over her face.
Suzie learning how bottles sound differently when they have more or less water in them. Suzie and Maddie really enjoyed the Birmingham Elementary Science Fair.

Today was our Garland Quilt Guild Tea Party. It was too much fun. We all ate the most wonderful tasting finger foods and played some fun games. Suzie went with mom and I. She liked the little lemon cake the best.

Suzy QTC - Playing monopoly at McDonald's while Drew and I enjoyed our weekly mommy and me breakfast. Suzy won a free breakfast and is very excited about winning big money collecting monopoly tickets.
Suzie QTC was made for me by a very dear friend and artist Barbara Linzey. We are swaping "flat-stanley" style dolls and taking them on adventures.
Suzie QTC is from Virginia.
She loves making postcards and quilting. Her latest thing is pounding flowers (look in her pink bag).
In September her friend Abby Lane and she went to Staunton, Virginia and went on the Quilts- Past, Present and Future Tour. They also visited the wharf and the Beverly Street Studio. All the stairs had quilts old and new on display. They even stopped at the Banana Split for a bowl of Ice Cream.
Ever since I have know my husband he's wanted to open a book/collectibles store. Randy always has a book with him or is reading books online. Not to my surprise at all, he decided to open up a bookstore in Wylie, Texas where we live.
The bookstore's name is Eerie Books and Collectibles and will be located on 205 N. Ballard Street, Wylie, Texas. The bookstore has a website at www.eeriebooks.com
The grand opening will be on Saturday, October 18, 2008 from 10 am to 6pm. If you live locally, please stop by. I'll post photos after the big day.
It would be impossible to be any more excited than I am. You would have thought that I won the lottery by the excitement after reading "THE" email!
You- the royal you- after submitting articles, art, etc...to every publication that will allow you to. Get so used to opening up very polite decline letters and emails that when "THE" email comes in and you are accepted..well the thought of all the million No's to get a yes blow away like a nice fall breeze.
My YES email came yesterday. Thank you, Thank you, Thank you to Barbara Delaney, Assistant Editor, QUILTING ARTS MAGAZINE® and CLOTH PAPER SCISSORS®
I will be one of the artists sharing their fiber arts in the Open Studios as part of the Make It University at the Houston International Quilt Show. Please stop by and visit me on Sunday November 2, 2008, from 1:30 to 3:30
See you in Houston!
