Life is a beach.

 These two small art quilts are going to be
repeated in a larger size. 
Just looking at them is relaxing
I need 5 larger pieces for my Chair show
and these 2  will do.
It was so nice I opened the windows today.
Makes the house smell so fresh.
 I have been thinking lately that I really
enjoy myself more now that I am retired.
No pressure to be nice to everyone.
I can dress down and leave off the make up
What freedom.
Why does it take so long to realize this.
Life is meant to be enjoyed.

Ida Red's

 Not as happy with my art quilts from yesterday.
I need to measure more. Buildings with straight edges
will show up the not so straight lines.
The best of the lot is the tree that stands in front
of Ida Red's coffee shop in Saugatuck in Michigan.
 The old buildings in Minnesota will not make the cut.
The buildings seem off kilter.
Colors are nice but the content leaves something 
to be desired.

Red Chairs

 Monday I finished these 2 quilts the Square is
15 x 15 and the other is 10 x 16.
I now have finished 14 of these small quilts.
My goal is to finish the other 12 by next weekend.
Then I need to move onto the large ones.
I love the grass in the rectangular one.
Makes me long for summer.
Well I am off to the studio to get done what I can.
Have a great day.

On the bluff.

I finished up this sweet landscape yesterday.
It evokes a feeling of calm.
Just what I intended.
The August solo show is a vacation of the mind.
The photo part is the fence and the tree to the left.
The rest of the quilt is made of batik fabrics.
Last night we went to a Booth Brothers concert
Wow those men can sing.
Looking forward to a relaxing day with my husband.
Reading and napping.
