I'm going to be in Arlington Open Studios again this weekend -- this is my eighth or ninth year, I forget. In addition to my usual quilts, bags of various sizes, blank cards with my photography on them, macramé bracelets, etc., I'll be selling these wraparound skirts, which are a relatively new item for me. I'm really proud of how they twirl! And I've made matching purses for some of them.

Open Studios is Saturday and Sunday from noon to 5 at Arlington Center for the Arts, 41 Foster Street. Hope to see you there!

tote bag with fuchsia and olive green fabrics
This leafy fabric (the one with the dark-brown background) was another in the bundle of uglies that [livejournal.com profile] danamae gave me. Inside this bag I used another from the bundle, a beige fabric with gold printing on it, which I considered the ugliest of the bunch but I actually think it works nicely with the other fabrics in this bag.

a pillow with a hexagonal pieced design
[livejournal.com profile] danamae showed me some fabrics that she'd been given which she considered too ugly to use. I took that as a challenge and asked if she would trade them for something that was more to her liking. Then I went about trying to make pretty things with ugly fabrics. This pillow is one of the attempts: the diamonds which make up its centerpiece are cut from a fabric which lends itself well to this kaleidoscope effect (the chartreuse fabric is from the same bundle, though I think it's less ugly).

A while back I posted about wanting to make green things. Here's what I made with that fabric:
green and navy-blue bag green, purple, and fuchsia bag

My eagerness for spring has manifested itself in an urge to do stuff with green fabrics. (These are the beginnings of the designs for two bags, one green with blue and the other green with various purples.)

Saw this on a walk last week:
