The Rest of 2012

The rest of 2012
50th Wedding anniversary.

Fabric for 2012 QSDS.
Group Quilt for the International Quilt show in Houston.

A very productive QSDS 2012 in Ohio.
A very great place to go. I learned lots
had a great time and met great people.

Summer beauty from my gardens.

My entry into the AQS show in Grand Rapids in August.
My big painting 10 ft by 6 ft never finished.
More beauty.

Tommy my great grandson.
Jasper County Art League's  Under Indiana Skies
show this summer.
My Mother passed to a better place in August.
Frog Time went to the Houston with the Haku.
Rosy and Owen the other 2 great grands.
They are all precious.

Summers bounty.
Summer faded and fall arrives.

New  art quilt accepted into the spring show
in Ohio International Quilt Show.
A new direction in the fall.

Found a mangle to iron all the fabric
needed for the Nancy Crow's workshop.
My quilt National entry that did not be done.
Knee surgery go in the way.
My first piece for In Harmony With Nature IV
coming in May 2013.
My exercises from the Nancy Crow workshop.
I WORKED along side some very talented
artist. Their art was awesome. The show and
tell was the best part of the week.

Finally made a Panakoken. Apple pancake.
Christmas bounty. My family loves me
and knows what I like.
Looking back 2012 was awesome. Some very
important milestones reached in just 4 years.
Quilt Nationals will have to wait but a great year.
Despite hardships the year was productive.
I find I do most of my work in the first 5 months
 of the year and than run to keep up with
everything thereafter.
If 2013 is half as good as 2012 I will be pleased.

  1. you had a very full year, lots of art, some side tracks with your knee. I guess we need the bumps in the road to really appreciate the good times, and you had lots of those. Happy New Year!
