Its a sewing marathon



I am busy sewing new quilt patterns that I am designing for a trade show we are doing in May. I feel like a production sewer! It will be nice to get back to my art quilts and painting. I have done a few postcards for my postcard exchange. These two are the ones for the fruit series. Not overly exciting but I am glad that I am seeing the light at the end of this tunnel. I have taken a ton of pictures of the grandkids at the park and in the pool that I want to paint. I bought these two giant frames, 8'x4' I am trying to think about what to paint for the picture inside. I thought a giant family portrait might be nice although pretty tough. Still thinking about it, I want it to hang in the office so it need to be the right kind of painting.

Oh how fabulous, especially those limes, they jump off the page in a soft subtle way (see how hard that is - jumping softly!!)

These are gorgeous, Desiree! I particularly love the limes...the green is luscious!

I hope things are going well with you, Jennifer and the rest of the family. I continue to keep you all in my thoughts and prayers.
