Exciting things are happening...

I have a few things going on that I wanted to share.  First, I have a quilt, "Tuning Fork #10", in "Art In Fiber 2013" at the Copper Shade Tree Gallery in Round Top, Texas.  The show opens on Saturday.

I'm the Rock Star of the month on the Dallas Area Fiber Artists website.

And, most exciting of all, I have a quilt on the Quilters Newsletter Website.

I'm heading to Round Top for the gallery opening on Saturday.  Can't wait!

Holiday and Post Holiday Blues

Christmas is over and it's a bit of a let down.  We had a lovely holiday.  And, a rarity for North Texas, it actually snowed on Christmas day!

It's snowing!
Boomer got a new hat, and laid back creature that he is, wearing it didn't seem to bother him.

Brian got a pizza pi cutter for Christmas (get it?) so of course he had to make a pizza to test it out.

Several weeks before Christmas I worked on the October sQ challenge -- start with a simple block, and change it each time to make a multi-block 12" square quilt.  (OK, I'm a little behind...) I really liked this challenge, so I made three.  My original block was a belly button block:

Telephone game #1
Telephone game #2 - cool colors
Telephone game #3 - warm colors
This past Monday, I put my father-in-law on a train to go home.  We had a wonderful month together!

On Tuesday, I got back to work.  First up, January's 12' x 12" challenge for sQ.  The topic was "seeing red" and the technique was improvisational piecing.

I'm back to work on client quilts now.  No more fun stuff until I get caught up again!
