O HAPPY DAY!

After I painted the fabric, I added gesso...just to see what would happen and it totally reminded me of a bunch of flowers.

We leave for our trip tomorrow...so unless I can't sleep tonight...which is highly unlikely...this will be my last post for a month!

This is it (on the right) upside down when I still wasn't sure where I was going with it.

Here is another of the door knob quilts that came about from painting scraps one day last month and along with the last two I've shown you...is also for sale.



I thought the flower arrangement would be WAY different...but this is how it is...






I loved using other elements - from other projects (failed)- like the bottle and mug...


And pieces from techniques I've played around with and saved every last scrap of - like the white 'picture' on the wall...




Most of all I loved the freedom of just being able to 'do the next thing' as it came to me...



And end up with a quilt that's gonna be hard to let go of!!!


If it sells that is.


I will miss you in the coming month...

Create Your life,


annie!

  16. annie! I like how this one goes off the edge. That Tttt posting was somehow accidental. Who knows what my fingers were thinking. Sometimes they have a mind of their own. Especially late at night.
    Hope you had a blessed time with your son.

  17. Thanks Coleen! LOL!!! When I looked at the blog post, I saw that you'd deleted the Tttt and just laughed because I've done done that my friend. LOL. I do appreciate ANY comment you make and just the fact that you would take time to look at my art and say anything IS a blessing to me. We are still in TX and totally happy.

  18. Hello Annie
    That was such a nice comment on my journal.
    Love those little baby door handle quilts. You really are such a talent even recycling your own bits and pieces of art.
    Take care,
    Suzy
