Chernobyl Ivy and other Artistic Endevors

 Happy Halloween!  Hope your day was full of cute ghosts and goblins and Batman.  We never have trick or treaters but I'm always prepared!

I got the chance to do some ribbon dying last weekend!  Yeah!  I'm loving the new colors I got, really saturated and yummy!  Thanks to the generous donation from Dana D. last year.  It took me awhile but I finally got the chase to try them out! (I dyed so much ribbon last year, it took me a year to sell it all!)  So much ribbon!!!
 These 4 are original colors but I left them in longer and they turned out SO MUCH BETTER!
 Then, I worked on my Crazy Quilt Journal Project.  I'm so close to the end.
 2 blocks left!  I ordered an 8.5" hexi template but it's been on back order forever.  So, I won't be finishing any of them until that comes in.  I want them to be the same shape and size so they go together better than my last one!
I've started quilting my Irish Chain.  I haven't taken any pictures buy I will.  I'm doing a meandering ivy in the 'chain' part and the open spots have a feathered circle.  The feathered circle is turning out much better than the ivy.  I'm referring to them as Chernobyl Ivy, to give you a reference.

That's about it.  Rich and Bethany have been really sick.  Rich is very needy when he's sick.  Petulant 5 year old comes to mind... but hopefully he'll be bouncing back soon.  Talk to you soon!

  1. Luscious ribbon colours for sure! I love your latest CQ'd blocks - more luscious colours there and I think my favourite part are the yellow roses. So sorry your family is under the weather - hopefully they don't share it with you!!
