Newest Project
This is the wide view of my *working* bulletin board. From left to right is my loon (still waiting to quilt it), a small piece, "Autumn Leaves on a Stone Fence" that I started while teaching a fusing workshop at The American Sewing Expo in Novi. Last is the most current work that simmered while I was at the Fabrications retreat (Roscommon, MI) over the weekend of Oct. 14-16 (wonderful, wonderful time with such wonderful and talented people).

Background on the last piece: the day we were taking my mother's ashes out to sea I took my camera along. My good friends, Frank and Liane Marino, took us in their boat, along the Hillsboro Canal and out the Boca Inlet. I snapped photos of some very interesting houses along the way. This was one of them. One of the things I really liked about it was it was NOT a Mediterranean. I also loved the windows and the reflections in them. So, much later, I cropped the picture WAY down, blew up the result, transformed it first into a posterized version and then let PhotoShop find the edges. So, here I the sky pieced together. Now I need to add the fusible interfacing and trim.

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.
