My monster before glazing

I just can’t get enough of these monsters. This photo is of the monster I made a few years ago. And now it’s time to make a friend for my monster. So I’ve signed up to take this workshop at Clay Space in Eugene. I can’t wait! Here are the details from their website at Clay Space if you are interested in getting in touch with your own inner-monster:

Art Under Glass on Etsy

Art Under Glass PendantFun Pendants made by Art Under Glass

I have several favorite Etsy shops and Art Under Glass is one of them.

You may remember last year I purchased several of these pendants for girlfriends, and now I’ve found this one which is perfect for my Halloween festivities. I think it will go nicely with my “Wicked Witch” costume, don’t you think?

Becky’s pendants are well made and beautiful and very reasonable priced. If you’re like me, you’ll want several because….well, because it’s fun. And she will make custom sayings for you (which I’ve done several times)….so you can get exactly what you want. So great! Support an American craftswoman!

Happy quilting….and prepping for Halloween!

Hiking on the McKenzie River Trail

Hiking with the girls….what could be better? Well, read until the end and I can list two things that might be at least as good. (That’s me in the middle in case you were wondering.)

I went on an 11+ mile hike yesterday up the McKenzie River Trail with some of my hiking buddies. Beautiful day, great weather, a huge frog, nice trail, bright orange fungus on a tree trunk, roaring rapids and a waterfall…and not a single drop of rain fell on us until we got back to the car. After 6 hours on the trail, the pizza from Fall Creek Market and the Arabella Cabernet Sauvignon (from South Africa) were a super treat!

And so today it’s back in the saddle….here I come quilting machine!

Happy quilting!
