Wannabe Art

A place where one old woman shares her daily ups and downs and her attempts at art with strangers and friends out in Internet land.

Hope everyone had a great holiday...and is eagerly awaiting a great new year. At my age all new years are great. (Big Smile inserted here)

Just finished another card for my friend...this one I wanted to keep...had lots of fun making it...it is also the first time I have sewed with metal...was afraid to try..... but it really was easy.

I'm one of the first five over at http://beates-fabric-art.blogspot.com/ blog, so I'm keeping my word and posting this on mine, too.

"The first five people to respond to this post (via the comments section) will get some form of art made by me. The only catch, of course: as with most memes, if you sign up, you have to put this in your own blog as well."First five comments (please email me your full mailing addresses) will receive some of my art.

The Lap Quilt is Finished

The quilt is finished and will go out in the mail tomorrow morning. Here is a photo of my professional helper and quilt square arranger.

The front of the quilt. This quilt was all done with left over Christmas fabric. This was a quilt as you go project so when you sew the last square your quilt is finished except for binding.
