A novel idea

Morning all....As you all know I have had a rough time getting back into the swing of stitching but I have done a little something that I wanted to share here.  Our guild  issues a yearly  challenge and for 2012 it  was  called a novel idea.  What Linda did was have you pick a book and then she told you the page to go to and then a sentence.  Then you would have to portray  that sentence in a art quilt no smaller than 18" square.  Well my book was Gone with the Wind and it was page 150 and I forget the sentence number but this was the sentence..."Then you'll be more comfortable."  and here is how I chose to portray it.   I thought well what better to make you feel better than a glass of wine at the end of the day so that is what I did.  I made a table scape with just some trim and then the rest is pretty much there....I tired to do some thread painting but I don't think my machine liked it cause it was giving me a  I also used Angelina and although you cannot see it there is red wool under the sheen fabric to distinguish red wine and then quilted.   And of course now that I have a little more hair I will post a pic of me with it...thanks for taking a peek.   Enjoy your day!

2 more Modern mini Challenge blocks

I am so late on these blocks and I have apologized I cannot tell you how many times.  This was for a modern mini challenge that has been going on all year and well we all know how my year has been going but I did finally get 2 more finished and just received one more in the mail on Wednesday and then that will be all of them.  I just wanted to give you all a sneek peek to see if you could guess whose blocks they are.  Enjoy your day!

Happy Fall!

Good morning Ladies and Gents I cannot believe it has been since August when I last posted here....Life has been busy as I said in my last post..the finger that I broke has not healed correctly but I will not have it re-broken until after the first of the year...I just have to breath for right now so that is what I have chosen to do. The shingles by sight are gone but I am still having some problems in that area but the good news is I am starting to stitch again.
I am working on finishing 2 obligations I have had that are long over due and then a little art quilt that stands for "then we will feel more comfortable".  I will post a pic when I am finished.
I truly do not know normal anymore but I am realizing that there is no normal it is just "life" and I am taking it as it comes.  So I wish everyone a very Happy Fall and I am so glad to be stitching again....thanks again for all the good wishes they helped me deal with life and I do appreciate them.

Happy Fall to everyone!!!!!!!
