You Asked For It and So I am Going to Post More Close Up's

I love this quilt about my Grandmother because it hung in my Mother's Kitchen and now that she has passed away, I have it back and I love it twice as much.

So, I have been doing some drawings lately of memories that I will later go in and paint. I have a series of these ready for color and I am going back to Libby Montana to spend time with my Aunt and cousin and will draw something up that is a memory of my Aunts (if she chooses). She is dealing with terminal lung cancer and I have never seen anyone so brave and so positive and so wonderful. I am learning life's lessons from her and I want to pay her back for her wisdom.
This is one of the drawings ready for color. I remember my Mother's neighbors well and talking over the fence-Grandma too!

This will be a great quilt MaryLou! I thought of you today when I used the fabric you gave me at Asilomar! Sweet thoughts!

Love seeing the close up and it is a wonderful piece and memory. We are heading on a vacation next week, so I will bring my sketch pad and see what I can come up with.

Hi Mary Lou,

Great close ups and I enjoy seeing your drawings for future quilts.

Very inspiring.

I also see I won the handbag block, cool, thanks a lot! I just might have to make shoes and a hat to join it...will have to see what I have in my stash that works with it.
