CELEBRATE with me! It has been too long since I did a giveaway.....
Reality show takes over my little abstract quilt. I so badly attempted to make a simple solids abstract house boat floating in Lake Union but then....the drawer of people and text lured me in! Can you imagine living under this roof for an evening, week or until the season is cancelled......I cut out the UPS delivery man but figured I had to stop before it was over done!
As I review photos of quilts that I have designed and created since moving to the NW, I am curious how our creative souls can be tweaked by environment, stations in life and.......WHAT? Celebrate with me how your creative soul is influenced! My top photo is an abstract interp of the floating home on Lake Union posted below the quilt. I have wanted to play with the abstract ideas and the buildings of Seattle and this is my first attempt. So badly I wanted to leave without an embellishment, but could not. I love this text quote and found it on my recent trip to West Seattle. There are more from where it came!
My place mats with silly ditties are taking off and I am delighted because they are a riot to create. These 2 are based on the theme, "NATURE".....more about human nature than Mother Earth but I could not resist when I found beach fabric and Want Ads for Paramours.....Thanks to the Quilting Loft in Ballard! And of course the staple of Seuss and Dick and Jane will continue to be incorporated.
So excited! I have gotten a commission to make another Tree of Life. It will be based on my original posted on Green Fairy's Blog but with certain animals chosen by Jess who is requesting the quilt. I am tickled that I can supplement my income doing something I love. I realize that my style is not for everyone but with each hobby comes a group that will enjoy the jounrney and so I thank you who follow me!
I will leave the contest open for a couple of days for the drawing. CELEBRATE! what's on your heart and what makes it beat! Leave a note of what you would like the prize to be.....It is your drawing, make it matter to you!
