Painting Complete

It chilly in New England and definitely feels like cold weather is on the way. Our summer days may be a thing of the past. This is great painting and quilting weather. I have just completed painting ( I think! ), another picture on fabric. This is one that I have thought about doing for a while, and just didn't start it. Just a week ago, I slapped my first paint on the fabric, and the picture in my mind took off from there! As usual, it really doesn't look just like I wanted it to, but we'll see what it looks like as I add thread. Now for the stitching!

Great SAQA Weekend

This past weekend, SAQA New England artists met in Searsport, Maine. A great time was had by all. There were socials, workshops and plenty of networking among artists. My friends Wen Redmond, Michele Kincaid and I attended. It was a great artistic boost just to be among these enthusiastic women.

Two Racing Quilts Completed!

My first two racing quilts, inspired by my photos of racing at Saratoga, have been completed. No blog pictures yet, as they have been entered into a show. Here's hoping they get juried in!
I haven't worked on two quilts at the same time before, but working toward a short deadline, it was necessary. I am happy with the outcome.
