I'm still here - not sure what I've been doing with myself! Certainly, not posting anything!
Below are two unusual purses/totes I bought locally. I've seen similar at quilt shows but never expected to find them in our local gift shop! I kept one for myself.
This is Mary, one of my dear sisters-in-law, retired art teacher, at their home near Denver. Mountains in the background have only small amounts of snow, not a good thing.
This is me, my engineer brother, and my boatmaking husband during a recent visit, when weather was warm!
This is my current project, "Lady of Shallotte" on my Design Floor for tooo long, because I haven't figured how to deal with the corners and the flying geese do not fit properly - lack of planning on my part! But, I WILL figure something! This is a large quilt, folded to fit the Design Floor. I am planning on hand quilting this one.
My Quilt Guild friend Sharon and I will be working on quilt show ribbons again this year. The theme is SUN, so we are each playing in prep for a July quilt show. My first effort did not work well - waaaay too fiddly, too many wedges, too fussy, too large, etc. The ruler worked perfectly but not suitable for this project. I tried inserting little white "rays" of foldy things, more of "tooooo fussy"!

Of course, using a variety of yellow/gold fabrics would have been better. Still needs something on the back though, but it's a beginning. Yes, I dislike the center but ...
