Birthday followup AND a finish for FAL!!!

I have been super busy in the studio again! It feels so good! I have missed my creative side for quite some time now.
The first thing I worked on were ATC's. These are Artist Trading Cards that I made for a swap. Think of ATC's as baseball trading cards for artists. The theme was Halloween. I made six cards.
 Some of these were inspired by artists that I enjoy.
There will be another swap for Yule that I think I will join in doing too.

I finally finished one of my FAL projects! It was JUST a label for the U is for Unicorn quilt. I don't know why it took me SO long to make it. But it IS done now, yippee!!!

I turned 62 last week. For my birthday I got an America the Beautiful Pass. This gets me discounts at national parks and five other national or federal agencies. I got mine at Central High School in Little Rock, Arkansas. This is the high school that had the National Guard escorting nine African American students into school. It was the start of desegregation in the south.
It felt very eerie to be on the same grounds and walking up the same stairs that held so much history!

We then went camping this past weekend for, probably, the last time this year. It was at Woolly Hollow State Park near Greenbrier, AR. It was a wonderful getaway. The campsite was spacious and the weather was perfect! We went on a long hike in the woods and I now feel quite renewed.
That's it for today. I have some other finishes coming down the pipe and can't wait to share them with you. Until then, happy sewing y'all!
