Is it Halloween Yet?
How I love Halloween! I always start way to early for a normal person! lol I finished this one
in a little under 3 months, consider this one a fast Crazy Quilt! lol
No such thing as a fast crazy quilt .... Been extremely hot here in Arizona! Loads of humidity and not much rain going on.
People say this has to be the hottest summer in a very long time. We are looking for a weekend coming up of cooler temperatures....90?
Now, to start on some Autumn, everyone seems to just rush by Thanksgiving. So, I am going to devote some time for giving Thanks, for health, friends and family.
As always Silvery Moonbeams to Watch over you,

Tagged! I was tagged by the sweet Nat Handmade!
Now, I believe I am to tag another,
It wasn't a hard choice, as I have loads of people I admire , There are so many talented people
in our community of artists. But, there are a few that I cannot forget to mention in this game of tag...First is Connie McBride .http://clothmatters2.blogspot.com, Connie is an inspiration in all art forms. She is always the very first to reply to someones needs and always so very cheerful, I admire here for her self, then as an artist. I hate to visit her blog and she always makes me feel like I am siting on my hands. She is always the first for just about any new technique.
SO, Dear Connie, I have Tagged You. You well deserve this.
Next, I would have to say it is another cheerful and honest gal, Kat Lees http://designsbykat.blogspot.com I probably would not be well into the "faces"..She was actually the encouragement to give the "face" a go. I had never in my life taken an on line class of any kind.
She had a CD of her classes and well, the rest is history, So Missie Kat! I have tagged you for your kindness and talent.
I know there must be a zillion who I could name, the members of the Pin Doll Alley are all worthy of a tags, but I know they will be Tagged sooner or later.
A special Thanks to Nat Handmade for her tagged to me and If, I could I would tag her right back! She is my hero, I adore her classes and new and refreshing instructions. Each class is prepared for the "project". Not one class offered in books, classes and it is the same old same old! I have taken other classes but I have made up my mind that I will wait for her classes. I have learned so very much from her.
So, Connie, Kat ....get busy and get a tagging.....
Big Hugs to both you gals,

Meet LuLu...Diva...Marvelous Darling!
Nat Handmade class is the inspiration for this newest Tea Cozy! She does not look like a tea cozy to you? Aha look closer!
You can see her big butt...I...a...mean bustle?
She is just a wanna bee Diva right now but, LuLu will take shape ....If, you like you can watch...AS I paint her face, give her hair and a big big hat!
Her dress well, got to think about this one...Would she be happy as Paris Hilton? A glass in her hand and a ankle bracket? Or as a red head with a Queens Crown on her head...
Any ideas you got...Give to me , I am working on 4 tea cozies as I think about this one.
So many notes in my journal and so little time.
Been shopping and you know that takes time.
So, if I have not dropped in on you for a chat, you know I am real busy creating.
And gardening ... and designing....shopping....Well, just life.
As always, Silvery Moonbeams to watch over you.
