By friend Vicki - the machine quilting is amazing as are the small-feather points in teh very center

Trout Lily - everywhere on a sunny spring day

Appetizers for dinner night. 
Everyone was doing a mixture of sewing, quilting, drawing, painting.  We are all doing a online course- Lifebook 2015 with Tam La Porte.  That is where my feather is from.  I have not yet tackled faces - well I tackled one - here at Watson and it was Zombie meets Michael Jackson - suffice to say i went back to sewing. :)   I do however enjoy the lessons and concepts of the online class. I am not able to keep up- just not enough hours in the day or week.  Off to mop the floor!

Books at Chestnut HIll

 I read this one a month or 2 ago- based on recommendation from Coffee Tea and Me.  It was a quick read and enjoyable.   Just enough fantasy to have a quick escape. Yet enough faith based to make you think a bit.   I paid it forward to a co-worker who also needed a quick escape.

I read this about a month ago and was a delightful read- what I call brain candy- fun to read and escape into their lives for a bit but no real substance.  Pretty geography, romance , relationships, a wedding or 2.  Environmental concerns for developing areas that perhaps cannot sustain heavy development.

Reading this currently whenever I get a chance- non-fiction and I am about 1/2 way through and find it enjoyable.
I am reading Unbroken on my Kindle and The Shape of a Year is either travelling with my or on the nightstand.

What are you reading these days??

Spring Art & Fiber At Watson

A little Field Sketching - on a warm spring afternoon

Leftover 3.5 inch squares become a new quilt

Glorious Color!

Machine Quilting this

Quilt top from leftover squares - dark in center, medium in corners, lights in middles. 


the sun was just hitting the hillsides just right - a pleasant early evening stroll by the creek
Overall a little bit of this and a little bit of that makes for a fun creative and relaxing weekend.
