Wow! Long time no blog! I've been traveling all over the state and to New Orleans for a 5 year reunion with my fantastic classmates and friends from grad school! I've been so busy, I haven't had much time to quilt, but I did make time to craft one of my decoupage paintings for our New Orleans hostess, the amazing Toni. She is into fencing, so when I originally found this great print of early 20th century ladies fencing, I knew they had to go to Toni. I chose grey for the background instead of one of my usual bright colors because Toni is the queen of black and grey, a true architect! For those who don't know, black is the official architect's uniform, but you have to choose fun bright shoes. I usually choose to wear all black with red shoes. :) The painting is below photographed in my "Tiffany Blue" bathroom.
Over the weekend I went to Hancock's on a whim because I had not been in a while and I wanted to check out their stock and see if they had something I couldn't live without. Of course, lucky me, they were having a blowout sale, so I went through the tables stacked with $2.95/yard bolts and found the fun fabrics above. The tiny trees and the owls are sooooo cute and I've decided to start collecting grey fabrics for a future quilt.
I'm trying to finish binding the Dia de Los Muertos wall hanging to take for Sew 'N Tell tomorrow at the SA Mod Quilters Guild Meeting. I guess I need to stop blogging and start sewing.
