Apologies, dear readers. I have taken too long to post. But here I am, popping my head up to share my art once again.
Here is the quilt I made for my guild's challenge, which was All Creatures Great and Small. Surprise! I made another tortoise quilt. I call this one "Gramps in the Garden." Because of the tight deadline and other things I had to do, I incorporated some motifs I already had done or at least partly done: flying geesestrips, die-cut flowers, hexie flowers. I imagined my tortoise waking up from hibernation to stroll around the garden, on a beautiful Spring day.
There was an exhibit of the challenge at my guild's May meeting. I was on the committee, helping to stuff challenge packets, hang quilts, etc. My quilt didn't win any awards, but the judge had some nice things to say about my quilt, and what the heck, I am happy to have it.
Now I am putting the finishing touches on still another quilt. I can't talk about it yet, but I've been having fun with the process. What is more fun than playing with beautiful fabrics?

So nice to pay a visit to Central NY. Our adorable Sammy is in school now, but we get to see her at dinner.

After Chicago, we stayed in Cincinnati. My first time there! Dave has heard of the Museum Hotel, so we stayed there. Two floors of art. I was in heaven!
This floor changed when people walked on it.
A skull made of wire.
Body parts in the bathroom tile! Notice the black fixtures and the rubber ducky.
These little plastic men were sandwiched between glass at the check-in desk.
Can't forget this cool sculpture, carved from books!
Last view of Cincinnati as we got outta town.

We flew to Chicago, and I got to visit the Quilt Festival there! The Dinner@8 Affinity exhibit was there, and here are a few photos. My quilt is called "Spring Comes Late."

I am busy working on a new quilt with a June deadline. I can't talk about it in specifics or show anything, but I hope I can say I am having lots of fun playing with fabrics. I love this part of the process!
Grandpa T, aka Gramps, is awake now, very active and busy wandering all over our back yard.
