A bit of Mondrian Inspired Goings On

Piet Mondrian Inspired Wall hanging, 27" x 24"

A quick wallhanging stitched up for my hubby!

Self-threading needle makes tucking tails a breeze, right at the machine!
First I made these little mugrugs so I could play with threads and patterns. You can probably see where I ripped the stitches from the upper right one, not liking the design I stitched in. I tried several patterns before I settled on the simple wavy lines. I am getting more accustomed to my Juki. It is faster, and the pedal touchier than my old Bernina, and I am still working to improve with consistent speed and stitch lengths.

These coasters were photographed on the Mondrian-inspired coffee table Ty made this month...

Ty is busy preparing for Art in the Park, a HUGE Fine Art show coming up in Boulder City, NV.

RU curious what is up with the Coca-Cola Crate?

He does a lot of unique furnishings, and the little green side table is one of my recent favorites..
 I also love these...
Today he is busy making a resting bench. The seat is gorgeous redwood. Likely, it will be appreciated by at least a few of the 100,000 people expected to attend.
What I am most excited about are the quilt/barn blocks he is producing...
I will post a bit more about these soon!
Regarding Quilting this week, I am preparing a Carpenter's Wheel block Tutorial.
 And, I have to admit my NewFO projects look the same as last month (!)
Pretty even though there's been no recent progress...  Hang tough, but maybe don't hold your breath...
It has been a busy month, and a busier one coming up, but in a great way!  
Amy, of Crafty Shenanigan's would say we are feeling very GREEN around here.
And that is a good thing.
