Baseball and Softball season is upon us! I really enjoy watching my grandkids play ball. I get a chance to sit outside and hear folks yell encouragement (me? i don't yell much). I usually take my trusty camera along and now my daughter-in-law has a beautiful new camera and we look like we're from Sports Illustrated..or something similar. A few other folks also stand along with us with their cameras and it's really a funny sight. I must remember and take a photo of everyone.
I have any idea for another small art quilt in the works.....hint: it may have fish!
Enjoy the weather and until later.....keep on keep'n on!
My family celebrates many birthdays in April, including mine. Then we also have Easter so there's lots of getting together. My children treated me to a wonderful Easter Brunch at a lovely hotel on Lake Winnipesaukee here in NH. I got to stay overnight in one of the beautiful rooms and my daughter and grandkids enjoyed a swim in the indoor/outdoor pool.
I've been making more small art quilts and really must get back to completing the queen size Log Cabin Scrap Quilt I started some time ago. I have a Handi Quilter but mine is the older version, not as expensive as the present models. I'm setting it up to quilt my brothers quilt...finally finished after too many years! He's a avid fisherman and has travelled to many places to fish. He fly fishes only and is a believer in catch and release. The quilt has pictures of him over the years enjoying his passion. Hoping to post photos of that quilt soon!!
Here are a couple of small Art Quilts that I've been working on. The quilt with the poppies was influenced by Laura and Linda Kemshell of Design Matters TV. I used my own fabrics that I had hand dyed and I'm very pleased with the outcome but it still needs a moon in the sky. The other quilt is made from some of the painted, dyed, screen printed and stamped fabric I played with several months ago. I had a few pieces left after making "Leaves I" so decided to try another.
