Muffin on the quilt

Yes I have a kitty and yes she owns the house.  That is just the way it is with cats.   They own you,,,,,,you do not own them.   Here she in on my hand appliqued quilt.   She looks like she approves.  I occasionally make traditional quilts but this is the first full size hand appliqued quilt that I have made.   The process took 7 years to complete the 9 blocks so I will not be selling it any time soon.   I still do not have it quilted yet.   Another 7 years check back with me.

Midnight Garden

If you walk out in my garden at night this is what you will find.   A profusion of colorful flowers mixed with the weeds and the dark night sky.   It is such a joy to see  summer greeting us with warm nights and abundant color.

This measures about 30 X30 and is available at Waverly House Gallery in Springfield, Mo.
