It was fun to see my "Riding The Rails of the Orient Express" art Quilt hanging in their dining area. See how the colors go with the orange wall in the kitchen on the far right. The greens pick up color of a lamp and vase in the living room unseen here to the left.
See two letters of GD's name in upper collage. She made a two page collage of her NAME using the fabric scraps. I made the log cabin quilt square to demonstrate something I thought they'd be able to do.
Here they are with a little friend visiting for the day. She enjoyed making art too.Kids are really enjoying making art with Hawaiian shirt fabric scraps! When I asked them today what was the best thing we did yesterday was they both said: "Crafts!" GD being very creative with cutting, picking shapes, she even realized she could make her name and did so alone and then taped two pages together to spell it out using these scraps! See part of it above 4 photos. One of GDs' collages... GS made a collage with papers from old birthday cards. and then he made a snake! It was fun hearing them say words like "fabric" and "collage" and "quilts"... music to my ears. Grandpa also played guitar and sang, and the kids danced modern dances around the room and did yoga poses they learn in their gymnastic classes! It was an art filled weekend, and full of love and fun! It was really hard to go home again, but the good news is there are some Halloween pumpkin carving plans in the making and we know we'll be invited back real soon.
