Off the wall Friday 5-17

Starting a new project but only have the bare start - It's going to be a zentangle in response to the word hope and I "hope" that I don't screw it up, now that I've said I'm doing it.

I've lightly penciled in a sketch and will outline all in black, then divide up some sections and quilt my little heart out, getting into the "zen" of FMQ ing.


I also need to work on some cupcake pincushions to sell at the quilt show in June. They've been sitting here for a month like this.


My mom just finished this fishing quilt - 540 pieced pieces! Did I mention she is a bit of a crazy person?

It's gorgeous and precise. She is such an accomplished piecer - great job, mom! Look at all the pebble quilting on the bottom brown part.

And this is all HAND appliqu├ęd and HAND quilted! Yes, people still do that and she does it very, very well.


We met today in Vergennes,VT and had a nice lunch in a park with a view of these falls.

Beautiful spot.
