As Seen on TV – The Downton Abbey Quilts
I love Downton Abbey. I make no secret of it and I adore the characters, both Upstairs and Down. I was making sketches of the characters in my notebook and on the iPad using the Paper App, when I started posting them to Facebook to my friends.
Not soon after, my friend Pokey asked me if I wanted to be part of the PBS series Quilting Arts.
So here are the Upstairs Ladies of Downton, made for my segment on Quilting Arts. How about you? Are you a Downton fan?
Treat Yo Self
I love, love, love the blog called Happy Zombie, who is also known as Monica Solorio-Snow, a quilter and fabric designer extraordinaire. When she posted this blog post (CLICK HERE TO READ THE AWESOMENESS) it spoke to me in such a way that I could not resist. I’m also a fan of Parks And Recreation, a really funny TV show, and I also happen to love Aziz Ansari as a comedian. But the idea of “treating yourself” could not have come to me, via Monica, at a better time.
But what HAVEN’T I got to do lately? Treat my (yo?) self. To sewing. So I sat in my studio one crazy busy weekend afternoon and made this.
Thanks for the inspiration Monica!
Weekly quilts – The X-Men!
I love the X-Men. I have collected comics since I was 10. I now work in the comic book industry. So why has it taken me so long to make these? I don’t know!
Nightcrawler, the mutant who can teleport!
Kitty Pryde, my all time favorite, the girl who can walk through walls!
Wolverine and Storm are still on the worktable.
MOAR MEMES – Keyboard Cat
Play him off, Keyboard cat!!!
Weekly Quilt – Meme Cats
Oh, the internet… I love this cat video. It’s silly and annoying after about 3 minutes. But it’s soooo darn catchy!
That MUST be why I had to make my own, right? This month’s weekly quilt theme is “Meme Cats”. More next week!
