ANOTHER GIFT...


While on vacation...



I made another little door knob quilt


for a very generous online friend


by the name of Ann Lindsey.


I found her work 



on FLICKR



and began following her blog posts


and LOVE her art


and attitude.


She sent me the most wonderful art post card...



designed just for me.




When I made this scrappy little thank you gift...



I was delighted to find an Annie charm to put on it.


At first I thought it was for me...



but realized quickly that it would go on Annie's quilt.


Hope you'll take a peek at her work on her blog...



Annie's Musings



Freezeframe is her FLICKR name.


I'm sure you'll love her art as much as I do.



Thank you Annie. :)













annie!




Linking to Paint Party Friday...because our art is painting of a different nature...and mine usually DOES have some paint splashed on it!


Wait till you see what popped up out of the water!!!

  5. What a fun door knob quilt and I do like the concept of a doorknob quilt. Yours and Annie's work are so different, but I love both and I like that you each make such attractive and distinctive small scale textile art.

    1. Thanks Sheila. I found that I had so many quilts on the wall and when I began making my first series of mini's...that was the name that popped into my head...because I found myself hanging them on the door knobs all over the house. :) Annie's style is very different...and I love her work!

  9. Hi Annie: I love your blog name. My old one was Bohemian Artist! Yours is adorable. Such a beautiful and sweet gift. I really love the name heart...good thing her name was Annie too! It is lovely in color, as are many things on your blog. Such a delight to look through. Thank you so much for your support on mine for the addictions (food allergies) last week. Every bit helps! I truly love how you put the photography within the art blog. It is such an intriguing and beautiful way to look at your posting. Thanks for that! Kisses, Samara

    1. Thanks so much Samara. :) I was told most of my life that I was bohemian...or had a bohemian style and didn't know what it meant until a few years ago. I guess they were right! And since the last two letters of the word are the first two of mine....well, it just seemed natural. I honestly don't remember what I said in my comment last week...but I'm going right now to look at your blog again! Thanks so much for your lovely compliment.

    1. Thank you so much! You're the first one to say anything about the last picture. I reviewed those that I took immediately after that one...for the first time (other than an initial first glance) and they're sooo cool. But I'm not revealing....yet! :)
