I thought a simple little UFO would be appropriate for my next project.

Many moons ago, I took photos of a sweet little kitten named Yoda. 

I played with effects on one of those photos in photoshop and created a design to print on fabric.


I don’t know how long ago I did this…long enough that when I touched the gold yarn, it disintegrated (Perhaps bad quality?).   I didn’t save the file on my pc (Neglect or a computer crash?) so I have no reference and no way to print more of this fabric.

By the time you read this post, I will have free motion stitched the fused applique.  I’m not sure what else I’ll do yet.

I have more long days coming with the day job, so I don’t know when I’ll be back. 

Meantime, ya’ll have some fun creating, whether you love to create in the kitchen, the woodshop, with Legos, knitting, scrapbooking, or….  Just find the time for the precious creative muse!

Bird Hunting or Cat Napping?

Remember the rhubarb birdbath I had made?  I think he’d like me to finish it.

Discoveries in the Garden

In every walk with nature one receives far more than he seeks. ~John Muir

It is always good to slow down and take a walk once in a while.  It refreshes body and soul and one never knows what one might discover.

A nest in the apple tree:

A crab spider hiding out in the phlox (she is so clever with her camouflage):

And a pine beetle:

Oh yes, he is alive!

I think the dent in the beetle’s wing casing was caused by an adventurous kitten.

She only looks innocent!

 What discoveries have you made on your walks?
