back to the making

While out in South Dakota, Susan and I managed to run away to her studio for a couple of divine little hours- and I got to make my first collograph plates! Yeah! The first few attempts at printing them were not so pretty so no images to share yet. Soon though- I hope!

While I was away my Step Mom had her birthday. Since I was away from town and my sewing machine I had to wait until I was home to make her a gift.

She loves green so I whipped up a set of these handmade napkins. I found the pattern in Weekend Sewing - a simple but lovely little pattern, made from fat quarters. I think next time I'll opt for buying it off a bolt, I never thought it'd be so hard to get 4 matching quarters!
