paint or cloth?

I am ready to start  new project despite having company coming and needing to get things made to sell in November. I also need to get my Halloween postcards completed and sent back to My Hearts Fancy in OK. Wish I could take them there myself....I could live in that store.

The photo above is a couple of Pat Pauly's art quilts overlapping each other. I am still inspired by her class nearly a month ago. And I need to complete another piece so that I can remember how to put them together.

Think I am going with cloth....

The works!
And I am loving it!

Friday Update

I made this in Tim Holtz's class Heart and Soul on Wednesday.
What a wonderful time we all had!
 I'm not really much of  Steampunk fan but who doesn't love hearts?
 Sorry about this pic. I rotated and re-rotated and it just wants to stand on it's side. Anyway it's Tim and his assistant, Mario. They were great down to earth guys loving what they do.

And I want to extend a huge thank you to Patti (aka the Queen) and her crew at The Queen's Ink.
They made this day a  fabulous fun day and a new happy memory in my brain.

Have an artful weekend!!

Friday stuff

I got my "big leaf" quilted and just have to bind it and its done.
I cant wait to get started on the next one. I have a really neat idea for it.

 Sorry about the shadows.

 I wish you could smell these peaches. So sweet smelling!
I don't care to eat them but I love the aroma.

This is what I LOVE!
I stopped at the local produce market and found one the size of a large pumpkin for $4.00.
I said this is the one...until I tried to lift it. I couldn't lift the sucker!
Someone got a really good deal on that one.

Have a fabulous and artful weekend!
I will be teaching on Saturday.

Big Leaf

I took a class from Pat Pauly last week called the big leaf.
So much fun!

 This is my leaf in progress.

My stash of brights layed out on the table.
A fabric rainbow!

Just had a wonderful weeks vacation with my family.
Why does time fly by so quickly when you are having a good time?

Wishing you rainbows of fabric, paint or whatever your mode of art is.

Happy Friday!

 This is a close up shot of my last tattoo.
I love the way he shaded it and the bright pink colors.

 This is what I will be making next week.
It's a class I'm taking thru the Quilt Guild.

I came home after signing up and went thru my stash and pulled a whole laundry basket full of bright colors out. Didn't realize I had so many.
Now I need to go thru and narrow them down to a realistic amount.

Family is coming this weekend so I will be off to the beach!
Have a wonderful weekend!
