Some of my favorites.

 I thought I would share a few of my favorite works
of art. The first one is an acrylic painting
'Yellow Barns'
 The second is an art quilt I did while at QSDS in
Ohio and called ' Central Park'
 Than a beautiful art quilt I should have kept.
I still have the painting though.
The last one is 'Sunset at Cedar Ridge'.
The view off of our deck.
I consider myself very fortunate to be able to make
these lovely pieces.
I am amazed at times.
I thank God for the talent he has put into my hands
and my heart.

2017-2018 showa

Another idea on my bucket list.
Doing some quilts of children.
My granddaughters friend Char  posted
this photo this morning and I loved the pose
and the colors. So far I have 3
definite photos to work from.
The other two are a blond little
girl and a child picking apples.
Two more and that will be a series.

Ceramics too

When I was looking through pinterest I found
more ideas. Slab constructed bird houses. We
have one now and the wrens love it.
Hung in the shade under the edge of the
garage roof so it stays cool.

Pinch pot style birds will be fun too.
Maybe some cloth birds.
SO many ideas are flowing through my mind.
A large quilt close up of a bird body.
Soft taupe's and browns.
But that is for next week
This week is being consumed with taking
care of my husband who has pneumonia and
irregular heart rate.
Never ends.
