Recent Creative Pursuits

I've been creatively busy. Can't tell you about everything, but these photos show some of the things I've been up to.  I made some Christmas cookies, inspired by the stocking I made recently. (No, they're not edible. They're fabric ornaments.)

I made new changes to my summertime cat's face. I think it's finally finished this time. As usual, Matilda (not Olive, the cat who inspired the quilt) had to get in the picture.

Here's the view from our hotel in Pacific Beach last weekend, when we were visiting our son. I played with it in Photoshop a little, can you tell?

Here I'm trying to find inspiration in the koi swimming in the dirty pond next to my gym.

I've been working on finishing the Christmas cards I started in the Experimentations in Letter Press class. The words of the inside message were done in class, and I made a block print of the Christmas Cactus design.

I made a few of this design, too. The "Noel" is Letter Press. The red design is screen printed using paper snowflakes. Each paper snowflake wore out after about 12 cards, so I needed to use two snowflakes. I still need to glue them onto cards.

Man, these cards are work! Can't wait to get back to quilts.

the cards are great, I didn't realize you printed them in your letterpress class. And Summer - absolutely wonderful. Mine still have a ways to go. Like catching up on your events.
