Exploring

Quite recently, I have been exploring blogs, due in part to Meda's tagging me, and thinking it would be fun to participate. Today I came across this one in a rather strange way:

I was looking for notebook covers. I love to use fabrics in unique ways. I made a carrier for my laptop out of double quilted fabric, and wondered if I could make sort of an inner zippered case to better pad my laptop. So I was following links as I love to do, and there was a blogspot blog.

To see the laptop carrier, go to the Quilter's Friend Lodi website, and click on the instructions link on the right.

I keep adding more stuff as I think of it. Anything you would like to see?

Another blog I found while looking for color ideas for a website update... this has nothing to do with website colors at all. http://oohprettycolors.blogspot.com/
And her website has a wonderful gallery of art quilts:

And then of course, on the sweet leaf notebook blog, I found a link to:

I have always been intrigued by the cathedral window quilt, and someday hope to do one.

So if you need inspiration, go blog hopping-- I'm ready to do a Sweet Leaf Notebook cover now, right after I finish the baby blanket, my daughter's quilt, and my son's quilt.

About Me

My photo
just a crafty grandma experimenting with all sorts of things. My main interests are paper craft of any kind and quilting/sewing. But I've done leatherwork, polymer clay, on-the-wheel pottery, painted molded ceramics, papier mache, stained glass, plaster casting, linoleum printing, paper making... you name it, I've probably tried it. A few I actually stuck with. :)
