YES! Easter Carrots!

Easter Carrots? Why not!
Carrots begin as tiny lifeless seeds that are buried in the dark ground 
as Jesus' body was dead and buried in darkness. 
As Carrots exhibits new life, it can be 
a symbol of Jesus' resurrection
and new life and  His sustenance for living offered to us.

Daily Art Leaves Progress

I find it interesting that even though I did not plan 
particular sizes for my leaf blocks
 as I participated in the February Art Daily Challenge, 
  the leaves puzzled together quite nicely. 
Can you spot the few coping strips

Bonus Block ~ February Art Daily

 During the February Art Daily Challenge
I combined  Day 14 with  Day 15
since they were already fused from a previous 
project and only needed hand stitching.
And yet, as I'm preparing to piece 
February Art Daily Leaves it needed one more block.
A fellow quilter suggested using another painted swirl background
which will fit nicely in the open space
next to Day 14 and Day 15.

 Guess this banner for the Chrysalis Flights wasn't quite finished 
and needed a sun still.
Sun appliqued with ribbon rays
and a wooden slat hanger.

"New " Duty Chart

New duty chart reflects my style
much better than the last which was black and white. 
Supplies: silver metal ends of frozen juice cans (free)
circles cut from paint swatches (free)
 magnets  (already had from previous project)
and broiler pan rack from thrift store ($1.50)
Hung from batik fabric strip (yup had that too)
Names and meanings on card stock.
Oh, the Entitled, Ungrateful, Grumpy circle
still needs a line through it for NOT!

Piecing February Art Daily Leaves

 February Art Daily was a great experience for me
and I have 28 fun blocks from the challenge.
Now to put the blocks together that were randomly
appliqued and stitched. I'm thinking of adding
hand dyed fabric coping strips between the
block similarly as I combine Free Style Cobblestone blocks.

Cutting Free Style ~ God Sustains You Banner



Drawing is not a creative art I've put
much effort in to. But today, I daringly
freely cut a mountain  utilizing fabric
 I had previously dyed and felt 
led to use for this banner. 
I also stretched myself and drew a silhouette.
 I turned the edges and machine stitched the mountain,
painted Ultrasuede and cut the silhouette.
I painted Ultrasuede grey and used a font for the letters.
This banner will be used at Chrysalis Flights in my area. 
What a fun adventure!

Patiently Hand Quilting "Rotations" $650

Although progress seems slow outwardly,
patiently hand quilting is a discipline that I enjoy.
It offers time to be still, pray and create all at once.

Hand Quilting Circles - "Rotations" $650

 I enjoy having a "hand" project.
Hand appliqueing batik and hand dyed 
fabrics on this bright blue hand dyed 
fabric has been fun.
Black Big Stitch around the
circles gives them more prominence. 
I chose black and green borders
to highlight the black batik and 
green hand dyed fabrics in the circles.
I'm considering black Big Stitch wavy lines 
along the right side.

Memorial Wall Art ~ "Joe"

Free Style Cobblestone blocks created
from a client's dad's clothing 
shortly after his death,
are pieced together and embellished
with buttons and tabs.
"Joe" will be remembered as
"Husband, Dad, Paw Paw".
 The hanging sleeve on the back is an actual sleeve
from one of his shirts. 
It was a privilege to create this memorial
Wall Art piece and pray for this family as they honor him.
