Giveaway Alert: Studio WaterStone Giveaway and Tutorial

Good Morning all,

Giveaway Alert
My friendly dog, Rose (AKA dog that woke me up) and I are sitting here at the computer with a cup of Joe.  As I peruse the blogs, I noticed a very nice tutorial and giveaway by Lori at StudioWaterStone .    Ahhh,  it woke up my creative self and perhaps now I can go to my studio and start the day. 


Yes, I wrote that I was going to post pictures of my latest quilt but with hubby sleeping, I need to post as quietly as possible and going upstairs will wake him up so perhaps tomorrow. In the meantime, here are a few things that I've been working on.   We had a bottleswap at our CYI monthly gathering at and my bottle was housed in a house made from a shoe box that had great texture that I could ink up and open up.   (I won't be taking any pictures in the dining room again as you can see that the lighting is not up to par. )

Quilt Block

I helped my sister with her parish quilt this year and pieced  6 blocks...example below... for the quilt that she gives annually for the quilt socials to support her church.    I love the on point setting, as it adds interest.    She has other blocks that someone embroidered in the orangish hue so she was excited when she found these fabrics to complement those blocks.  She is a master at setting up the quilts and they still hand quilt them.   They are quite beautiful and it definitely is an art that I cherish.
The quilt was given away and someone is now nestled under it, enjoying the beauty.     

Well, that is it for now.
