Apples... apples..

This was a really fun thing... painting with fruit. I actually used an apple to paint these!

Now I will take this finished fabric and make it into an art quilt of some kind...


Mega Quilter - Unleashed!

I finally got my mega quilter working... however I now think I need to change thread again... it keeps developing these 'pushed up ' areas on the route to the needle.. and then it breaks... and I'm using Star thread!... but I do see small nubbies on the thread... so I'm thinking I'll try a new brand. But at least I got my quilt done and OFF the machine! Now I can bind it and USE it! (since it's mine!)... YAY I'm not showing it here yet til it's bound.

HELP!!! I'm Blocked!

I really need to do something that feels artsy... I can't come up with an idea, it's like "artsy block". Well I can't call it "Quilter's Block" for obvious reasons... LOL Anyway, I thought about designating one day a week as Artistic Day. On this day I will do at least ONE THING that will let my artistic spirit out. TODAY is that day!
- any ideas out there?

Ruth's Flower Gaden

This is my flower garden... doesn't need watering.. doesn't need sun. Never dies, or even wilts... I actually was inspired to do this after a day of weeding in my garden! LOL

On another note, I'd like to find some quilters to start a project similar to the 'twelveby12' group. I think it'd be fun to have a project block to do once every 2 months... with a common theme, then we can post the blocks in a united picture as if it were a finished quilts.... 2 mos gives us time to get it done... and think of the next one.. If anyone out there is interested... pop me an email and let me know, ok?

Happy February

Quilter's Home had an advertisement in my mailbox and oddly what caught my eye... was a quilt Cake! Can anyone find a picture of it?

Happy New Year!

Well it's January 15th, I figured it's about time I welcome in the New Year. I usually let Christmas linger on in my heart until about now, then I start realizing that my BIRTHDAY IS COMING!!! Yee Haw! i DON'T know why at my age I'm still as giddy as a school girl about my birthday, but I am! Perhaps it's that I made it one more year! Who Knows.. but I like to celebrate it! This year one of my ways of celebrating it is to have a "Quilt In" with some of my quilting friends! I'm quite excited about it.. and I'll have to post pictures afterward. (You bet!) Other than that, I don't know what I'll do, other than dinner, I'm sure... I usually try to get a massage on my birthday, but I am working on that day this year, so I'm not sure how that will go... and also, my ceramics class is on my birthday... maybe I can finagle getting off a few hours early... Oh, and my husband and stepson are cooking dinner for me that night!..

Last year (or was it the year before) I had asked for something (anything) that required "tickets". You see, that would mean some Planning would have to go into it... and it'd be something other than dinner out... and it'd be an adventure because I wouldn't know what it was!... My husband surprised the heck out of me and got tickets to see the Blue Man Group! It was wonderful,.. and we had to spend the night in a hotel too... one of the best presents he's ever planned... try it ladies.. you'll be surprised in some way or another! LOL
