January in Indiana

 Winter sunsets are pretty spectacular.
Here at Cedar Ridge  we get the best ones.
 Old houses and old barns along the road
make for great quilt ideas.
 A pile of wood along the neighbors fence.
A frosted Century plant in the back yard,
 The pattern of a pile of wood by the garden.
Beauty is everywhere.
I am finally making some headway on my
 first quilt of 2016. I find it hard to get started each
year than I go like crazy.

Slow but sure

 I haven't been able to walk in this space for a
year. Finally got this space cleaned up.
 Much to the delight of my great grandson.
The toys are in here. See the dark space.
That is a tunnel to another closet.
He was thrilled that it was just his height.
The rest of it is mattes, card stuff and stamps.
 I started to work on a new quilt.
Water inspired.
Love the background.
Fabric by Helene from Paducah.

 Thought I would share this piece from the past.
The assignment was to do a figure  sculpture.
He had a big blue heart.
 Cheese box for a head, leaves for hair,
sewing machine boxes for legs,
shoe last for feet and chair ladders for ribs.
My husband helped me with this masterpiece.
Never know what you may end up doing in
the name of ART.
