Decided to try something new! Here is my first attempts at using these new markers. They are super fun but it will take some time getting used to. I also found it appropriate to draw a chameleon as my first drawing with this new medium. It's a little punny, you have to admit.

This was such an awesome experience! A 7 year old wanted a painting party for her birthday so I was commissioned to create "paint by numbers" style canvases for the kids to fill in. The kids all chose their own colors, because you know how kids know exactly what they are doing when it comes to painting. They did not need any kind of navigation or instruction when it came to actually painting. All in all, it was a successful experience and I can't wait to do it again!

Here is the beginning of my newest quilt! I have always wanted a patriotic themed quilt and I decided on this pattern. The whole thing is made up of triangles which makes it easy. And the good thing is that if I have any left over triangles I can make a table runner or save them for a scrap quilt for later. It is a common size used in a lot of quilt patterns. I cut 3 7/7 in strips, cut those strips into 3 7/8 in squares, and finally cut those triangles in half. You can pick any colors for this pattern and rearrange the triangles any way you like. This is just how I chose to do it this time.
