Sunday, July 20


Greetings, dear readers! Happy Sunday to you!

I wanted to give you all a peek at something I've been working on for awhile now...I can't show you the whole thing because I want the recipient to be "SURPRISED" when she opens the box. However, this is an endeavor that I'm a bit of a newbie to. The whole sewing thing (like flower arranging) used to scare me spitless. I don't know if it's because I feel this is an "art frontier" I've yet to explore, or if I'm just feeling brave and sassy...I've seen all kinds of amazing art quilts...some that tend more toward traditional quilting:

And some more toward scrapbooking:

Mine is probably something in between. Here's the first little art quilt I did (my wonderfully thoughtful and "supportive" husband quipped, "It looks like a glorified potholder.") Nice.

And here are a few choice peeks at my latest attempt:

Thanks for stopping by!

More soon!

I love the whole art quilt genre. I've not done much of it since Christmastime. I have a few things planned out, but the whole remodelling thing has chaos reigning :)

Ohhhh, you're a tease! I can't wait to see the piece in full. Thanks for stopping by my blog recently. We really enjoyed the Pier restaurant you recommended while in St. Pete. I'm craving the yellow rice and black beans right now. Must find a recipe.
