April 22 - Earth Day

Earth Day is here again - a reminder to all of us to recycle, re-use, re-purpose, or UP-cycle - my personal favorite! 

I have a box of old t-shirts, a large bag of old socks, and a huge pile of old blue jeans that I work from when I'm making 'artsy' stuff.  I also save my batting scraps, bits & pieces of assorted ribbons and trims, and lots of odd buttons - it's fun to take these things and make something pretty from them - like the blue star charm, or the fairy crown, or the coffee cuff.

Hope you have a way of recycling something into something beautiful today - or at least in the near future!

and here is a pic of the "Seeking Wisdom" quilt that won the Blue Ribbon in Mixed Technique - Small Quilt at Three Rivers Quilt Show last week:
