My donation for the Mini-quilt silent auction at QSDS. At last year's banquet I won this lovely woven fabric from India. I can't remember the name of the woman who donated it or what the fabric is called, but I really liked it. It isn't something that I normally use in a quilt but I vowed to make a mini quilt for this year's auction with it. The only fabrics in the mini that aren't from that batch are the trees and the sky- oh, and the frame. The piece is fused and then stitched over. It is about 8.5" x 10" and I call it "Amber Waves of Grain." It reminds me of what our farm looks like in the fall when we are getting ready to harvest. The part of Michigan we live in (actually, true of most of the state) is very hilly and rocky because of the glacial activity millions of years ago. I tell folks from outside Michigan that we grow rocks better than pretty much any other state! The main breakwater off Muskegon, MI (on Lake Michigan) was built with rocks from my father-in-law's farm. It isn't any great work of art and, amongst the people who donate to the auction, I am a total unknown....I sure hope someone bids on it!

    Nice work! Hey, I think our farm in upstate NY can vie for the most rocks category! We had the same topography - hilly and rocky. One of our jobs in the spring was to follow along behid a flat wooden structure, pulled by horses at one time and a tractor later, and pick up rocks and throw them on the structure to be hauled out of the field to prepare for planting. I always wondered why every year there were more rocks! It was never ending.

Quote:Apples and Wine: Women are like apples on trees. The best ones are at the top of the tree. Most men don't want to reach for the good ones because they are afraid of falling and getting hurt. Instead, they sometimes take the apples from the ground that aren't as good, but easy. The apples at the top think something is wrong with them, when in reality, they're amazing. They just have to wait for the right man to come along, the one who is brave enough & smart enough to climb all the way to the top of the tree. Now Men... Men are like a fine wine. They begin as grapes, and it's up to women to stomp the hell out of them until they turn into something acceptable to have dinner with.
