Back in my studio

Well, I finished my spring cleaning and got back to my studio. I am soooo happy that is done!                                                                       Recently I had a customer ask me if I had an Uncle Sam...which I didn't. Now I do! I rummaged through my fabric and actually find some colors I could use. Several hours later, this is my Uncle Sam! I know why I buy most of my patterns-it takes a wee bit longer to start something without any idea of where it is actually going, or probably more importantly, how I'm going to get it there!  I'm kind of thinking this guy turned out pretty cute! Yes, he is a tad heavier than most Uncle Sams are so I am going to call him--- Uncle Sam, the chubby years.    I have one more I want to work up-he will be a little thinner than this guy. I will post pictures as soon as I get him done. I also have a new cat to take pictures of as soon as it is dry.

Bye for now and have a great evening...Deb

    Spring housecleaning....I wish I was done. Haven't even thought about it yet. Still trying to clean up the house from the craft show and get stuff put away that didn't sell!!!!

    1. Hi Lois,
      We had some really nice days that got me going...and then it cooled down, but I was determined to finish once I started. I would rather be doing a show but there are just not any worth doing around here in the spring. I am a little jealous you are doing shows instead of cleaning!
