Fall in Las Vegas is a breath of fresh air.
We have just finished enduring anywhere from 6 to 12 weeks of triple digits
and although the occasional 103 or 4 may be reached the night time cools everything down. Unfortunately the pool cools too and our blood is so thin now
that 69 degrees feels like the glacier waterfalls we would jump into
up in Washington State because we were young and crazy.
I love when we can open the windows at night and feel the cool fresh air.
I am switching my color palette to those warm autumn hues.
This art quilt, "Autumn Dreams" has been in my Etsy shop for awhile
but I just redid the pictures and it looks so much better photographed outside.
I love all the texture I was able to achieve with the yo-yos, halloween burn out fabric, free-motion quilting
The gold and variegated threads really show up in sunlight and the angle makes a difference.
I took a Tarot class a few years back and still use my two decks.
I have been making Tarot bags like my own with fall colors.
I have a very dear friend who has a September birthday who received one
and here is another with lighter shades added.
Football season has commenced and so my husband,
a avid Patriots Fan watches all the shows
so I have been pretending to watch while I stitch up
lots of crocheted fingerless gloves
(in my "Tom Brady Shirt" for good luck).
They will be ready for
The Mt. Charleston Fair #2
on November 21st from 10-4 pm
for my local friends.
Hope to see you all there we might even have a little snow!!
I handmade the buttons from polymer clay and used alcohol inks to make them look like ceramic buttons.
I added my own twist to a very fun and feminine version
of a pattern from Crochet Magazine Sept 09 issue.
There is a lot more I have been doing but I am going to save some for my next post!
Have a wonderful weekend everyone!
