Polymer clay just brings out my inner pre-schooler.  stuck_out_tongue_closed_eyes

Or maybe it is my inner fifth grader. 

Don't think the pre-school crowd would be allowed to play with toaster ovens, sharp blades and dangerous pokey things.

Suze I hope the wedding is fun. Yes reading the info helps with the decision of what to wear.

I went to three places today looking for fabric. I wanted royal blue, not darker or lighter and shiny. I finally found fabric at Jo-Ann Fabrics. This dress needs to work for 3 weddings so I had to be picky about what I wanted.

Re:  Flopsy

The petals on a real daisy aren't perfect but still very beautiful.

I hope you're being nice to "imperfect" Flopsy!

Just more fun stuff! Covering a staple remover bug is cute.

Since all of these "bugs" and other creations are going into pots at the back of our house I can be as silly as I want. They will be seen by family and friends only (including forum friends) so anyone who might think I've gone off my rocker (like snooty neighbors) will be unaware of my child-like designs.

Remember, there is a difference between childish and child-like.  One is bad, the other is good.  relaxed

She is lovely!  I have a Babylock and I like it very much.  Enjoy your sewing!

after a run of 8 novelty quilts, I'm going to do something completely different.  A friend wants me to cut up this much beloved and loved quilt made by a now deceased grandmother and turn it into a 3' x 3' wall hanging.  I've had it for 6 months in a bag under my table, feeling guilty that I haven't started.  I texted her again tonight, are you VERY sure you want me to cut this up?  She said yes, so I guess I start cutting tomorrow.  I'm only going to fold the edges back and add a hanging sleeve, so it won't take long.  Somehow it just feels sacrilegious to cut up a quilt.  But she's right, it's falling apart and she wants to save the memory before it is completely in shreds.

Wow! Those take a LOT of work!

Did you notice that the grandmother made the red pinwheels going in an opposite direction from the others?  Is that important in any way?
