RV Makeover

I finished my makeover project today. We purchased a used RV in the beginning of March, so that we could travel to Florida for a workshop that I wanted to attend with Hollis Chatelaine. It was a great workshop with Quilters' Unlimited, based in Ft Myers, Fl. This is just the beginning of our RV trips, and I wanted to begin making the RV look like us. Of course, I added textile art! I painted and trapuntoed the headboard for the bed and covered the window cornices. Then I added the whitework quilt that I made last year. I replaced the flowered wallpaper border with a lighthouse border. Now it looks like we are headed to the beach.......our favorite spot!

Computer Crash!!!!

Well, all those things I was going to finish today took a back seat. My Dell notebook ( less than a year old ) crashed this morning. I have no idea why? I spent HOURS online with Dell and I'm up and running again and I did not lose my data and my pictures. I take a ton of pictures because in my mind, all of life can be a quilt! That's it for now.
I am an avid NBA fan.......watched four games yesterday and painted cloth while I watched. Now I am going to watch the game that's on and finish the RV project tomorrow!
Thanks to all who have viewed my horse quilt and left comments.

Thanks for the visits and the comments

I am so excited that someone actually visited my blog! Thank you for the comments on my quilt, Morning Ride. When I visit other people's blogs, I feel so encouraged that there are other people, "out there," who love doing what I love to do. I really thought, if I had a blog, who would visit it? Your comments have truely encouraged me. Thank you all!

Morning Ride

Just finished a quilt that has been in process since last fall. It is based on a favorite picture of my husband and my oldest daughter, on our Morgan horses. The picture was taken six years ago. The horse that my husband is riding, Bismarck, was a family pet for years. My daughter Julie, kept him until his death just shie of his 30th birthday. She is riding her Morgan mare, Ellie. I love the original picture, and I hope that I did it justice.
Warm weather has finally come to the northeast. With the arrival of spring, and Daffodils finally in bloom, I have decided to finally start a blog. I hope to share my work, both in-progress and complete, and get feedback from other artists. I have really enjoyed both the blogs and websites of other creative people and I hope that you will enjoy mine.
