On A Roll!!!

There's something GOOD to be said about deleting pictures from my hard drive...other than the fact that I can more easily find the ones I'm keeping.

It's encouraged me to make more quilts based on pictures I've taken. I have SOOO many quilts to get busy with!!!

My son-in-law, Pedro, took the picture below in the Everglades when he, Hillary and Sophia were on an air boat. 

this is a picture of my well used copy of Pedro's picture
And I just loved it.

So...I began work on Jerry's alligator in March of 2k10. (My hubby LOVES alligators about as much as any person can). 

I put it aside - for the past year and a half - because I just wasn't happy with it. But I took it out last week when I finished My Happy For No Reason Book and while still surrounded by the euphoria which that piece produced...

I got to work and finished it today!!! Yay-hey hey!!!

Label included! 

Just need to go find a dowel - or something - to hang it from.

I'm off to begin the next project!!!!!!!


  1. I think you have done a brilliant job of this Annie. It looks so real.

  2. Thanks Ann!!! I feel so excited about it being finished. I feel like I’m ready to conquer the world!!!

  3. OMG, annie! This is just fabulous! I LOVE every little piece and stitch! I've been sitting here pouring over every square inch! WONDERFUL!

  4. Wow. That is amazing. You've really brought the alligator to life using fabric. I can't wait to see what you do next.

  5. That is so great. Your alligator even looks a little more ominous than the one in the photograph!

  6. Thanks SO much Robin! I can't wait to get started on the next one!

  7. Thank you Caatje! It was actually a bit creepy working on this at times...but I shook it off and kept going. :)

  8. Looooooooove that quilt! So gorgeous!!! Thanks for being a part of Art Journal Every Day!


Yuckola. More than half of my email has been from anonymous, so.....
