A little tribute to
the autumn leaves starting to change...

and it's finally the weekend.
Tomorrow will be a good day for a drive
to see the changing colors.

Maybe to the Oktoberfest
at Snowbird.

Happy Weekend to everyone!!!

Art Quilt Wall Hanging in neutral tones

Just finished up a project I've been working on for a while...
It's a very detailed quilted wall hanging - all natural tones, full of roses and hearts, birds, flowers, and words. One large patch has the Bible verse "love is patient, love is kind..."

Fun to make, a lot of work. Maybe I'll do a whole lap quilt similar to it one day, maybe not. For now this one is on etsy.

Have a great day!

Day in Park City

We spent Saturday with some good friends in Park City. Rode the six-pack chair lift to the top, and hiked half way down.

At half way point we got on the Alpine slide and rode little plastic carts down the slide to the bottom.

Ended up at Wasatch Brewery for lunch and brew. A brief storm of rain and hail passed over reminding us we were in the mountains and that Winter will soon arrive. Awesome day.

Persuasion was Jane Austen's last completed novel.
Persuasion of the heart.
I thought it was a good title on a fabric art journal,
ready to be filled with persuasive pretties.

I'm searching for a new title.

Fabric art journal books

I sewed a stack of fabric books out of quilted muslin.
Blank books.
Full of quilted pages to decorate.
So soft. Even cuddly.
My husband (who has the mind of an artist only if looking at the paint on a Harley Davidson) says, "These are really cool, but..."
"but you're making something that won't sell. What are people going to do with them? Staple things to the pages? Use a magic marker and write on the pages?"

I wasn't hurt.
I know that textile artists will know what to do with my books.

Have a happy weekend!
