Zion Narrow Continuing - Adding Grasses

Progress so far - 
 This short blog is just to show you that I have done a little bit of work on my quilt. I've been teaching this week and came back from classes with a bad headache - lasted for days. Yuck. This is why there is hardly anything to show you today...

Zion Narrows Continuing

My original photo
 In my last blog I showed you what I've been working on lately and today's blog is showing you the continuing work. Soooo, by way of review the photo above is my original photo, the one below is my edited version. (I didn't like the big sand bank in the original.)

Zion Narrows Landscape

Zion Narrows
 I wasn't planning on making another quilt so soon, in fact if you looked at my last blog I think I said I wouldn't be making another quilt so soon - I wanted to work in my yard and walk my dogs and enjoy spring. Well, winter came back and just dumped another 5 inches of snow so as I was stuck inside I figured I'd make a landscape.

I also wanted to do something completely different.

Spring Hardwoods

Spring Hardwoods
 Will wonders never cease - here I am updating my blog after only 1 week! Yay me! However, you might not hear from me again for quite a few months - I want to repaint my bathroom and spend more time outside for awhile. 

I just finished this wall hanging for a class sample so I thought I'd show you how I did it.

This and That

First Light

 It's been a month or so since I've blogged so I thought it was time to show you what I've been up to. Since finishing the Sunset at Mohave Point landscape, I haven't wanted to do anything big so I've been finishing up small projects and making a couple more for class projects.

Sunset at Mohave Point - All Done

Sunset at Mohave Point  56 x 40 inches
 This is going to be a short blog - I'm just showing you the finished quilt. Yesterday I cleaned my sewing room and took some pictures for the show circuit. Today I'm off to visit family and then next week I hope to start on another landscape... just don't quite know what I want to do!

Sunset at Mohave Point - The Quilting is Done!

Detail of Mohave Point at Sunset

 I finished the quilting yesterday and I'm still not sure I like it... People keep telling me that we are our own worst critic though so yeah, I guess I just need to accept that and move on. I wonder what my landscapes would look like of I just did straight lines across the strips and nothing else. Someday I'll try it, but that is neither here nor there.



Have you ever had an idea and jumped on it before you thought it through? I'm not sure I'd do this again and it surely caused a rush of adrenaline when I did it.

Here's the story -

Grand Canyon Sunset - In Progress

Grand Canyon at sunset - this is basted and not yet quilted

 It's been a heck of a last 3 months but hubby is up and back at work half time now. Thank you for all the encouragement you've given me since the last blog and I'm happy to be back to work myself! 



I started this quilt last August before we left for Ukraine, I just never had time to show you what I was working on after I finished The Perfect Nanny (Mary Poppins). By the way, I sent it off to the National Quilt Museum where it will be part of their traveling exhibition for the next 2 years. Maybe you'll be able to go to an AQS show and see this added exhibit?  

On to my new quilt -
