A doll for Fall

Here is a little fairy I created from a Lotus Vela pattern. All dressed for Fall. I made her wings from gold metal fabric.

I have been doodling a bit with the help of the Zentangle's books. They teach you how to doodle. Here are a couple of my projects. These are drawn in a 9" x 6" book.
Here are a couple links to check it out. The first one is the Zentangle blog and the second one is Judy's blog about her drawing and Zentangles.
It is fun to do and kind of relaxing. As you can see I haven't learned how to relaz totally and so mine get a bit messy!

Table runners finished

Here is my Halloween string pieced table runner. I think it turned out great and so Autumnish looking! You can't see the quilting but I did easy leaves on the runners instead of my usual meandering.
The string one is the runner for the large table and the crazy quilt one is for the smaller kitchen table.

Quilt along

I am in a Yahoo group called CRAFT (creat really amazing friends together). We have been doing some string piecing and taking pictures and posting them on our group so it feels like we are all quilting together. Some of the gals that have vid cams have been setting up vid chats to sew together. It is fun.
here is what I have done. They are going to be Halloween table runners

The first is going to be a runner for dinning table.

The crazy quilt type I am going to make two more squares and have a runner for the kitchen counter.

I will post more pics after they are put together. I have done both types of squares on a muslin foundation using the stitch and flip method.
