Yup that’s me! After years of fun, I did it!

Here is the front.
and here is the back. I do like the front best.
and again the back side. What do you think?
I watched in horror as the doctor tossed my DH’s bandage changing leftovers into the garbage! Carefully fishing them out, I now have 18 square feet of beautiful white gauze to dye, two little plastic trays to dye them in and two 6 inch square pieces of Tyvek to paint!
I bought 7 yards of Silk for $4.99!1 yard of Sage and 4 of chocolate brown dupioni plus a gorgeous 2 yard scarf of chartreuse and magenta Indian weave! I’m not sure what they were thinking!
Felted and sewn perhaps the sea floor minus the foot!
Judged, juried, critiqued and found worthy my art quilt “Suffer the Little Children” was accepted into the SAQA global exhibition Guns: Loaded Conversations. They also chose it as one of just 5 works in the ad banner! Nice way to end the year.
IT’S BEEN AN EXCITING SPRING!
After receiving rejections all last year, so far two acceptances! Fantastic Fibers at the Yeiser Art Center and Spring AQS Quiltweek both in Paducah KY starting April 26th. Yippee Skippie! See you there!
