Pinterest Project: Concrete Planter

This Pinterest Project was messy, but quite fun!  Inspired by the many concrete planter tutorials on Pinterest, (including this one by radmegan) we made our own using recycled containers for molds.  I used a 2-liter pop bottle and a smaller water bottle.

Once the concrete had set for a day or two I pried off the plastic...

...and I had a rustic-looking plant pot!

It kinda reminds me of a molar... but I think it'll look pretty cool with a plant in it!

Rainbow Monsters!!

I am excited to introduce my newest paper-pieced creation:  Plurp!

Plurp is the first in a series of Rainbow Monsters designed by Elliot and myself.  Plurp is cheerful and bubbly and he's available on Craftsy!  I think he's super cute and would be great for a little kid quilt or pillow.

You can check out more of Elliot's graphic design work here.

Not All Who Wander Are Lost, Part 4

I know, I know... I'm behind with month four's blocks for the Fandom in Stitches "Not All Who Wander Are Lost" block-of-the-month quilt!  Life happens.  But now they are finished and here they are!

"Galadriel's Mirror" designed by Regina Grewe

I couldn't decide which background I liked best... or which one looked more "Lothlorien"...so I made two blocks!  I'm sure I'll find something to do with the extra one.
