holiday photo

For the last 15 years we have sent out silly cards at the holidays. Here's the picture from the 2007 card. The caption read, "Peace on Earth from your favorite urban sophisticates."

As I was looking back on past cards I realized how FAT we are getting and don't know how much longer we can continue doing this. Future photos are likely to be quite sad and disturbing. Our friends may not send cards to us in hopes of not receiving any from us.
The quilt in the background has a tiny Elvis in one of the windows--maybe you can see him.

None of my little quilts sold at the Artist market this weekend, but it was fun to be involved with the gallery. I have started on a series of small wallhangings that are cityscapes. I will post photos of them when they get finished. I made a similar one last year and really liked it. Someone else did too because it sold at a show and I've been wanting to make another one or two since then.
Working in a series used to never appeal to me--I mean, who wants to make the same thing over and over--but I thought I'd give it a whirl when I had all that discharged fabric. It's been interesting to explore design options, but I'll probably never have number #75 of anything--I mean, who wants to make the same thing over and over.

Artist Market

The West Clinic --a local cancer treatment hospital--is having an artist market this weekend. Three little wallhangings and some mixed media brooches were accepted into the market. here are photos of the wallhangings. Painted sticks will accompany them but are not pictured because the pait is still wet!
