T-Shirt Totes

Another quick post, as I still don't have internet from my computer, and I have to share with hubby at home. Here are some tote bags I made from my husband's old t-shirts. Since they are comic book characters, I am selling them at my store. I've already sold the Death one, within a week of putting them out for display!

The first pic shows Shade the Changing Man and the back of the other tote:

The second pic shows DC/Vertigo's Death as drawn by Chris Bachalo (one of my favourite versions of Death) on the left and Shade on the right. I am not sure, but Bachalo may have done the Shade art as well, although the signature is different, it just says "Christopher".

And remember those hand pieced triangles I was working on? They've graduated into blocks! They're a little wonky, but I love them! I am thinking a wall hanging or a doll quilt. We'll see how many I can make.

I did manage to finish off some quilts, while I was away on holidays, but I haven't photographed them yet....so, hopefully, next post.

Vacation Pics

Reading the last Harry Potter! My cousin and her two teenagers all read it...in English, too! The Dutch version doesn't come out until November; they couldn't wait either!

Davey and me at Ragged Falls:

I attempted and mastered Kiyaking! Me in the foreground, my hubby in the background. He found it much more comfortable (surprisingly) with his arthritis (AS) than canoeing. The new drugs help, Yay Enbrel!!

The view, peace and tranquility, at Oxtongue Lake:

The cottage! (Thanks Christine and Mark!):

I miss it, already!

I'm Back!

As you can see, I am having a great time visiting with my cousin and her family! My cousin and her family did a 2 week camping tour of the US: New York, Gettysburg and Washington, and then spent a week with me and my husband renting a cottage near Algonquin Park in Ontario. They spent their final 2 days in London with my parents and in this photo we just completed a walking tour of downtown London. Unfortunately I left my camera at my parents and won't get it back until the weekend, then I can post more photos. I am also temporarily off-line at home so I posting from work, it's handy to be one's own boss :)
