    yes. he's now in london. he has a nce 'flat' with a good room-mate. classes have started and so i hear less and less from him! i'm happy he's doing something out-of-the-box! he announced he was leaving mid-september and was on the plane october 2nd. i made his quilt in less than 3 weeks, a record in all ways for me. oh, and i used wool batting, and i have to say, i love it! nice loft, warm and easy to work with. he skyped me and he was under it as he was having a bad day with an infected toe. glad he liked the quilt, sorry for the toe issue.
    have a great thanksgiving! will your son be there? i was just in tx for a week with my kids and dgd. such fun!!

    London in Dec with a quilt and new classes? He will be having such great fun. What is he studying?

    Hard to miss the kids over Xmas isn't it? Next year we will be meeting up with our kids in Australia where we lived for many years. We have wanted to go back and visit for years now and decided to combine holidays for all of us with the Xmas season. Maybe next year you'll go to London? Any excuse to travel and visit the kids is my operational motto.

    i am dying to go to london! daniel is a playwrite and is attending the central school of speech and drama at the u of london. he will get his masters in play- and screen writing. he has been produced all over the place, and if i may brag a little (as if you could stop me, lol), has directed, produced, written, acted, sang and danced, did lighting, stage manager and written the plays. he is ahead of the class in experience. he started doing plays at age 4. he would gather around the older kids, tell them the story and then have them act it out. at six we made him a lightboard for his birthday. did i see this coming? You betcha!! i am immensely proud of him, as i am all my kids. he is the only one that had a fire in his belly and knew how to use it! have i posted a pic of the quilt? you'll need sunglasses!!
    i miss the kids all year long. i just got back from a week with 2 of my children and my dgd. can't wait to go back!!! of course, the more i go to dallas, the longer it will take me to save for london! so torn!! daniel is supposed to be producing and directing a play in austin, tx, in january. i may try to sneak in a texas trip and go see him. he was right here for years and i loved that he checked in periodically. i sure miss his bear hugs!! but, he is pursuing his dream and i am so glad for him!!

    Lucky you.........How very very cool! Artistic children are both a a delight and a different kind of worry I have found. The fact that you even knew what a lightboard was shows me that he came from a family with some artistic interests.

    When he does the play in Austin let me know!! My DD & SIL have made their home their and they participate in a huge number of the regional art events of all sorts. They're thoroughly involved in the young professional scene there. Bet they'd enjoy each other immensely.

    Now this AM I better sit my backside in my studio, turn on my spanish lesson and work on a challenge/gift piece............

    That's an excellent idea! No doubt they will have a lot in common! I love artists of all genre! I am frustrated that the most artistic thing I've done all month is get my nails done! Grrr at me!

    Well, here it is Thanks giving and I haven't even started the November challenge. I know what I want to do but don't have a clue on how to do it. Still working on that part. I am a complete loss on December's challenge. My family does not like handmade gifts, so I don't make them things anymore. Kinda took the fun out of the season for me when I was told this several years ago. (No more handmade gifts, we want store bought. Bah Humbug!!) So November might creep into December in getting the challenge done. I hope all is well with everyone and I wish a happy thanksgiving season to you all.

    Oh yeah... that would be fun. Probably lots in common. DD and SIL have LOTS of creative, interesting. single friends!
    It would be hilarious if they already knew each other. Want to PM me with FB data and I'll do same?

    Also know some fantastic, talented women orchestral musicians down here in Santiago should he want some real adventure!

    Boy do I know these problems. My November challenge has morphed into an unexpected gift art piece that I think the recipient will enjoy instead of what I was going to make for me. (The other may become December or January or....anyway, it goes on the list to do later right? Maybe for me for Dec)

    Family that only want 'boughten' stuff? OMG! Well I progressed to gift certificates for a micro lender like Kiva for many of my friends and family. Helping better people's lives is what the season is all about so that handily takes care of that. Then there is more time to get back to the fun of creating those projects that keep us awake a night planning their details.

    Hope you enjoy getting into a project soon......

    i agree with sistah! i prefer hand made! my children normally get $, and a little something to unwrap. but dgd gets money in her college fund, and new stuff. she is almost 18 months and is talking up a storm! i've bought dresses and toys. can't help myself! the family is getting xmas stockings, if i put the pc down and make them. lol. i know i'm not the only one!!! lol

    My circle loves & expects homemade gifts. Sometimes it is hard to get a new idea. This year it is place mats and/or sets of napkins. A computer-print pillow for the computer geek. Art quilt for vagabond son. Pumpkin butter is in the crockpot.
    Nut brittle. Ornaments of course. Ho, ho, ho!!

    Don't forget a QR code for the geek to scan and puzzle over! It will print up great on any photo prepared fabric. They are so cool, totally 'geeky' and useful in many a quilt project as an 'in' joke. http://goqr.me/

    Can I come to your house for the pumpkin butter and nut brittle? I can bring some Chilean wine and fresh blueberries and strawberries........but nuts are wildly expensive here so I crave things like pecan pie and nut brittle.........

    sistah what are you up to these days? You always have a ton of wildly creative projects going on. Xmas at your place must be controlled chaos.

    Hi all, missing the fun here. But I have done a thing or two. I just cannot get the download of photo to work. I'm going to try and load the finished "refreshing and cool" project I showed earlier and one which I did with my quilt guild. We were given a brown paper bag with decorator's fabrics (for drapery and furnishings) and was challenged to make something wearable or quiltty. So here I go with the uploading of photos. oh well, no luck with the photo, you go to my blog and both pics are there. Sorry

    You sure have done some things! Went to your blog and saw your goodies hanging there. There is some good stuff on those pages. Hope after the holidays we get to see you more regularly.

    I've got a piece on the wall today that is supposed to be being quilted. But I just can't decide exactly what quilty stitches should go on it................and this time of year there is no time for dilemmas....

    art scarves

    I want to show you what I have been making lately. I hand-dye bamboo socks and scarves, and cotton fabrics. Most are for gifts, but I sell a lot in Seattle.
