Circle Doodads

I know, same picture as the last post. Lorrie asked what the circle doodads are. They are Clip O's (paperclips) that I picked up somewhere, probably a scrapbooking store. They are made by the American Tag Co. There were circles, hearts, stars, diamonds and triangles in the container.
The Fiber Diva meeting was fun. Everyone has been working hard on our challenge. I forgot to bring my camera, so I don't have any pictures of them. I'll try to remember my camera next time.

New Quilt

I finally have something new to show. This is Marilyn's quilt for our new challenge. Her "theme" was to use a technique using big stitches to sew all the layers together, instead of sewing by machine or fusing. The background is a piece of my hand-painted fabric. I finished the edge with a zigzag stitch and then ran a piece of yarn around the edge. The fiber Divas meet this Friday. It feels good to have something to show this week. I've been having trouble getting into my quilting lately. I think part of it is the time of year. I seem to have trouble each year at this time.
