What I've been working on

Lately, I submitted 2 art quilts for consideration in two separate exhibits. Fingers crossed!!

Now that that's done, I've been finishing up some flowers and leaves, which I am about to send to Pokey for the "community garden" that will be at Quilt! Knit! Stitch! in Portland this August. I think the garden is such a clever idea. I confess that my flowers were started for other projects.

Lavender cat

I whipped up this little stuffed cat for my granddaughter. It turned out a little wonky-  am hoping its flaws will give it personality!  I was inspired by a photo someone posted on FB, with no name of the designer. Wish I knew who it was, but anyway mine turned out skinnier and wonkier. You might need to click on the photo to see the whole thing.

Quilts in QNM!

Quilters Newsletter for April- May is out, and two of my quilts are in the readers quilt show section. It's a nice spread about the Tasty exhibits writhe San Jose Museum of Quilts and Textiles. "Cubism Meets Baltimore" is a prize winning quilt from 1996, and" Italia al Dente"  was a commission for P and B Fabrics in 1997.

Apricots in March!

My poor, confused apricot tree is forming fruit in March! It hit high 80's here today. Strange weather here in Southern California.

On the creative front, I've been working very hard on the quilt that I can't talk about yet. It is coming along. I'm excited about it.

Also, a friend told me she has received her Quilters Newsletter Magazine, which has two of my quilts in it. So tomorrow my quest will be to find a copy for myself.

Laguna view

Photo taken at Cleo Street Beach in Laguna beach yesterday. It was like summer, in the 80's!
