I've been messing with my blog layout. All those colors were making mu eyes hurt. Hopefully this will be better. Eventually, I'll try to make my own banner. I started on the Winter quilt. First, I want to show you the sketch I made 2 weeks ago. Don't laugh. I've never had art lessons.
Now, lets see what the start of the quilt looks like.
They are close. I want it whimsical, retro colors, and just plain fun. I want to do more embellishment on this one. Mr. Snowman needs help. He doesn't show up very well. Oh! I melted a piece of the tulle that is covering the snow. I have to fix that. I know irons and tulle don't mix, but though I could risk it :)
I was getting into my Saturday routine. Sit down at 1:30 and watch some sewing programs on PBS. I saw Nancey Zieman make a nice jacket in 30 mins. Actually I think it was 3 jackets. Must be nice! Then my favorite show Quilting Arts TV, was supposed to come on at 2pm. It didn't happen. They had another quilting show on, Eleanor Burns. I like Eleanor, but I was expecting Art Quilts. They aren't interchangeable. Oh! Well, I guess I'll go marinate some chicken for dinner. Bummer!!!
