This blog will be a journey through my quiltwork and some artwork and my life...sometimes the muse' is not active but I'll try I was a gourd artist until my hands gave out, now I thoroughly enjoy playing with fabric and paint. Enjoy most everything that nature has to offer.
Family and friends are very important. I live in the beautiful Peace River Area of northeastern BC.
Finished clue #4 this morning. I am questioning my yellows. they are more gold. Hoping when it all goes together they will all play nicely with each other. As I was doing these units I was reflecting on my first mystery with Bonnie. It was Orca Bay and with the first clue I nearly bailed out! I didn't have much experience under my belt, my 1/4 seam was very off most times, really didn't know how to cut fabric correctly..units too small etc. I carried on learning as I went, and now realize how much I have learned. Heck, some of my units are large enough I can trim them, and those pesky points...well most of them match up. What a difference practice and taking advice makes. Here is Orca Bay.
Grand Illusion continues, And here is part 1 and 2 of clue 4
Here are all the clues together, keeps my mind active wondering how they will all go together.
I just finished these two pin cushions and scissor keeps for two dear friends.
Here are a few more I've made, I am way behind, but have all winter to stitch away happily. I love hand stitching in the evening. Do you?
This is one of the projects that I have completed.
Talkin' Turkey is coming along, just a few more flying geese units for the border, and I will start putting it all together. I attacked this pattern like I would the MQ, each unit at a time. Lot's of units in this container.
