Well, "Fish Dance" is finished and out of the house. whew! Silly me. I forgot to snap a picture. Hopefully I'll get one next week and will post it at that time. It still has some migratory blue, but it's not as offensive as it was at first. It helps if I take off my glasses when I look at the back. ;)
I've started doing something a bit odd, but it makes me happy, so I guess I'll continue. It happens when I trim a quilt into square. hmm. All that quilting? Going to waste?
Inspired particularly by Deborah, I want to make use of my snips and strips. Here is the leftover from trimming Fish Dance:
Later today I plan to zig-zag it together into a nice little piece of fiber art, like this one:
I added a pin in the frame, to give you a sense of scale. This one was leftovers from trimming "Buzz," the quilt I made in the Nancy Brown class. I didn't have a black and white cat charm, but the black and white button makes a fine substitute.
Now on to the kitsch...
Yesterday I saw Pat for the first time in months. She brought me a present, along with the declaration, "This reminded me of you!!"
I'm not sure what I think about that. "Glitzy Bird Brain"? "Gaudy In an Endearing Sort of Way"? How, exactly, did this remind her of me? ;)
She says it's because I like to go to Estate Sales. She says this is something to add to my Estate. Like I have one. ;)
And the kitschiest thing of all about this bird? It's a pill box!!!
and I thought I'd seen everything...
Thank you, Pat, you crack me up!!
