Piggy Bank Challenge


I just found out about this challenge today. I am in and you can read more about the challenge at Val'sQuilting Studio

Today was the close of the challenge but Val extended the date to July 20th Whoopee!!!!!!
Next year on July 6th we will empty our banks and share what we saved and what we want to do with our stash. I am not sure what I will do yet but perhaps use it for a quilt/show trip

Miss Piggy is all dressed waiting for the grand finale.

Peace, love, and art,

Frida Kahlo’s Birthday Tribute

Mexican painter Frida Kahlo
I have always admired Frida Kahlo’s  work, but admit I knew very little about her life and art other than her beautiful recognizable face.  So I decided to join the event at Sewing On My Kitchen Table  to celebrate her birthday by making something that captures the style and spirit of Frida Kahlo.
I began by finding a image and a thought provoking quote  I liked to create a journal page. I traced the image  on fabric and filled in with colored pencils.


Her thick eyebrows were her trademark

She wore elaborate hairdos with braids and flowers.

She painted self-portraits surrounded by her pets

 Now these cat-eyed glasses  above  are what Frida wore, but I believe she could Rock these heart -shaped glasses that I embellished.


Dia de Muertos---- Spanish for Day of the Dead a Mexican holiday that celebrates family and friends who have died.  I think this cuff braclet I made would also be a part of her wardrobe.


Linking up with guest host Diana at Red Delicious Life

Have a great week.

Peace, love, and art,

That's all Right

The 60th anniversary of Elvis Presley's  first rock and roll recording in Memphis  is all the buzz. On July 5th 1954 he was 19 years old and on that day recorded "That's All Right". That day changed his life forever when he went on to become the King of Rock and Roll.

To celebrate this  historic event I made this Elvis pillow cover.  It  is in my  etsy shop here

                        Note this is for a pillow cover only, you will need to purchase the insert .

I have 2 14 inch pillow covers available for immediate shipping and have enough fabric to make several more.

Hey you Elvis fans step back in time and listen to "That's Alright Mama and for information about other events go to

Linking this post with Anything Goes Monday  Linky Tuesday and Needles and Thread Thursday

Peace, love, and art,
