Memory Quilt

In the mornings, right after I get up and of course after feeding the cats, I work on this quilt.  If I just work an hour a day I get so much done.  The latest work has been on embroidering the bottom border.  If you wonder what the story is behind this quilt please go to the top of the blog under the banner and click into the page "CJD and the quilt".

The next part I need to address is filling in the area with the last hearts. Unfortunately I never have a problem coming up with names to add to my quilt. 

I will be tracing, writing and embroidering for the next few weeks. 

It's so comforting to see progress on this.

Thanks for stopping.

Poppy Buds

A multi medium picture I was painting today.  It has 3 dimensional elements made with Styrofoam-redi wrap and plaster of paris.  They were fun to make and weigh next to nothing.  It is on artist wrapped 10 X 10 canvas and the sides will be painted also and it will be ready to hang.

I hope you liked.

Thanks for finding your way to my place.

I have been doing some drawing throughout the day.  Chairs with shadows...Each of these chairs are special to us.  A special neighbor gave us this chair that he did the seat weaving.

My Mother picked this Windsor chair up while on vacation somewhere.  It is very comfortable to sit in.  I love the wide seat.

Another one of my Mother's chairs she picked up somewhere.  It's a smaller chair and  has pretty details.  I thought it was called a thumbnail chair because the back curves like your thumb. 
Tomorrow they will be painted with watercolors.

Check back later....thanks so much for stopping.
