Andi asked me to help with a logo sign design for her brand new longarm quilting business. After a few rough drafts, here is the resulting graphic artwork:
And here it is made into a sign on the window of Andi’s new business venture:
Pretty cool, huh? From art to reality! If you see this sign, drop by and say hello to Andi!
It has been a busy week in the studio… I’m making another scarf to replace the scarf I’m giving away. I also have a new quilt I’m quilting, I’m writing a new tutorial, and I’m working on metal art class homework.
The homework is getting pretty smelly- I’m patina-ing copper by using chewing tobacco, ammonia, and vinegar. I’ll show you what it does to copper in a day or so. So, are you wondering how does a girl suck up the courage to go buy her chew? Well, I first tried to get DH to buy it for me, but he wouldn’t bite. Then we bought a bunch of groceries, and when I got to the part where I ask the checker to get my tobacco, I told her why I wanted it. She agreed it was a strange reason. Then, I told her that it was a cover story for my DH’s chew habit, who was too embarrassed to buy it himself. By this time, I’m not sure she believed me, but I was laughing and having a grand ole time. DH may never bring me to the grocery store again, though.
Tomorrow, I visit Faith’s wonderful studio to work on etching metal and other jewelry projects. Faith is a fun person to hang with, so I’m bound to have a good time.
Do something creative today!! Hugs, Carla
