A weekend post....

While I'm at it, I'll show you a couple pieces of my work from 2009...

For some reason I ended up covering a large coffee can with recycled denim and 'artsy' touches.

Pretty sure I missed the mark on it, but it still serves as a recycled paper receptacle in my studio, so there must be something about it I like.

 I also made a ring bearers pillow using what else but crazy quilting.  The center fabric was from a piece of the gown the bride wore.

Today's quote is from anonymous..... "Habit saves you the trouble of making a lot of dull decisions"


  1. I like the can, I met you through Kathy when you started the e-magazine. Hope it
    is growing well. Your work is beautiful as is Kathy's. I signed for the class, thank you.

  2. How fun to see your previous projects. I like them all. Serene Sunday...

  3. Did anyone notice the diamond-shaped hole in the bride's gown? ;)

  4. Hello Mary Anne! I think your recycled coffee tins are fun and I love that beautiful pillow! :) x

  5. I really like fabric covered cans so am totally in favour of yours lol
    I made a lot to sell on a stall afew years back using felted up woollies with flowers decorating the outsides.
    I made them so you could take the covers off and wash them when they got dusty too, worked a treat.

  6. Happy Monday! Thanks for the tips, Mary Ann.

  7. love that you still use this fabulous container...


Thank you so much for leaving comments! I appreciate you taking the time out of your busy life to talk to me. It's wonderful to know that someone is actually reading my mumblings and even more fun if I can connect with you and visit your blog.
