I thought I'd show you this little quilt....made several years ago and shown on this blog 'way back when.' A part of this quilt serves as the banner on this blog also. Someday, I'll change it, but for now...I'm still happy with it. My son-in-law loved it so I gave it to him. I was so pleased he wanted it. All made by heart and hand. It's about 20" square, if I remember correctly...
Loved making the trees!
Oh, I forgot...I did sew those leaves down with a straight machine stitch right down the middle of each one. I knew it would take me forever to stitch each one down by hand....as would be my habit.
I also loved the colors in the leaves...I should have saved some of the fabric used to make them.
Just talking about the trees makes me want to make more....Oh. My.
And, now, some quotes I chose this afternoon. I find them everywhere and appreciate that others have said beautiful words that inspire and encourage me. I hope to continue with my 'work' as long as possible. Don't you?
"If you hear a voice within you say "You cannot paint," then by all means paint and that voice will be silenced."
Vincent van Gogh
"Art enables us to find ourselves and lose ourselves at the same time."
"One eye sees, the other feels."
"May you see in what you do the beauty of your soul."
"Instructions for living a life.
Tell about it."
until next time
