Summer Nonsense, New Plates.

Ah, I love you guys. Thanks for all the input on the last post. I am going to take your advice and email her, but I will wait until I have actually MADE some more of the pillows. I am all over the place this summer, hopping from one project to another, and I get behind on posting them here. This past week was husband's vacation, so most of my time was spent enjoying his presence, and not a lot of creative work got done. We bought a bed! We got Rufus to swim! We did some other stuff that will be mentioned in subsequent posts! But no sewing. Whatever.Today, however, I did manage to get out my old friends the paints, and do a few plates with a design I had been working on. I have a few quilt-related sketches that are probably going to make their way onto plates, and these are the first two. Typically I do the black outline and then paint in the colors, but after I did these I realized I really liked them without color. I might do a few more and rainbow them up, but I thought the lines were really enough on these.Anyway. They're etsyfied, get them while they're hot. Or something.
PS: Does anyone else physically drool when Made by Hank puts new bags up? Especially the big ruffly shoulder bags? I do, but since they are always gone within, like, the half hour, I do not have time to be tempted by things my unemployed self can't possibly afford.

Made by hank is so drool worthy. I bought one of her smaller bags since that is all I could afford and I pet it daily :)

(love the new plate must have one with for my growing collection!)

I love your illustrations and you made the right choice to leave out the color, simplicity...

Can Rufus come over and teach Lucky and Frankie how to swim? Our dogs are big chickens, they won't even get into a baby pool. The plates are beautiful!
