Yes, Marj and I discovered yet another “art” shop in Whitefish, Montana, Stumptown Art Studio! Here, we have spent hours cutting and fusing glass and Marj even did some creative painting on pottery. The workers in the shop just kind of roll their eyes now as we mosey on in for our third or fourth time! LOL
Here are pictures of Marj’s finished ceramic and glass projects. She did a beautiful job hand painting the designs on the ceramics.
Marj has been busy while home as well. She loves to crochet. In this pic, she is working on a dish cloth but she also made the throw which she is using to stay warm!
I am the queen of bowl cozies…..hard to imagine that I forgot to put any in the motorhome! So, here I am making a few. If you haven’t ever used a bowl cozy, you must. No more burned fingers as you eat a steaming bowl of soup – and no more freezing hands as you enjoy that big bowl of ice cream. We LOVE them! In the last picture, I’m working on a table runner for my sewing center in the motorhome. It’s made by wrapping clothesline with 1 inch strips of fabric, then zig zigging as you go – look closely at the photo to get an idea of what it will look like finished.
Almost every evening, I try to work a bit more on my needlepoint project. Sometimes, I’m just too lazy to pick it up or I spend time on the blog. Working on the blog can be a bit frustrating at times due to inadequate campground wifi. But as you can see, I keep plugging away. Progress is progress, no matter how fast…..right?
Of course, I’m still managing to sneak into a quilt shop here and there. The first one is located in Kalispell, Montana and ranks among some of the very best! The second was in Polson and was a fun shop with very helpful sales people. Every shop has it’s own personality!
I love playing with glass fusion and I just couldn’t stop myself! Here are the results of many hours of great entertainment!
In case you can’t tell, one is an abstract of people on a beach, one is sea oats on a beach and the last is a mountain scene with wild flowers in the foreground.
That’s all for now, folks……Happy Trails!
