Another giveaway.

I will also give some one the guitar stamps I carved.
So that will make 2 giveaway. I will include some fabric
with the stamps. Let me know which you prefer. The quilt
or the stamps.


I am giving away this 8 by 10 art  quilt.
The colors just are not me.
So why keep it .
I am going to be clearing out stuff I don't use.
Too much stuff in our house.
Someone else can enjoy it.
If you like it just leave a comment,
I will draw a number on Monday morning.
Please do so only once.

Summer on the pond.

Summer on the pond is finished.
2 more quilts should be enough for the summer show.
A total of 6-must leave some of the wall space for fellow artists.
Maybe need to throw some paint at a canvas or two.
Busy day today.
My daughter and I went to Sam's and Meier's grocery shopping.
Super Bowl week-end she has a big party.
Out for lunch at Joe's Crab Shack.
We don't get together too often so it was fun.
She worked a 12 hour Monday and Tuesday
and an 8 on Wednesday.
I was surprised she had the energy to go.
Nurses are tough.
What a beautiful spring day in February.
Not the usual Indiana weather.

Winters frosting finished

I added the beading on the corners of this small quilt
I took the photograph one early morning when the
hoar frost was thick on the trees.
A serene color scheme and peaceful quilt.

Wordless Wednesday

Photo finish.

The photograph on this quilt was taken by the big pond.
This photographs was taken on a frosty morning in January.
I though it was a good subject for a 12 by 12 quilt.
 I need these finished, photographed  and re-sized by
Wednesday morning to be submitted for a grant.
I always wait til the last minute.
Never learn or just too much to do
I will add some borders and some beads.
My friendly photographer will be here at 3:30.
in the afternoon to take photographs.
I have been trying to learn the photography thing.
I spent 2 days studying and taking photos
but still I am not getting it.
Must add this to my bucket list.
