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.   http://www.coppershadetree.com/

I'm the Rock Star of the month on the Dallas Area Fiber Artists website.  http://www.dallasfiberartists.org/dafa-rock-stars/

And, most exciting of all, I have a quilt on the Quilters Newsletter Website.  http://www.quiltersnewsletter.com/slideshows/workshops.html?slide_id=2062

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!
