After having 40 boxes of donated Pine Belt Quilters quilt supplies in my garage for six weeks, I am happy to say the garage is empty. The remainder was donated to the Hattiesburg Arts Council for Abigail Lenz to use in her activities with children's camps and art groups.
I have been working on a Quilt of Valor as well as another guild project (table decorations for our hosting of the MQA Fall Gathering in Hattiesburg Oct. 25-26. The QOV is made of squares surrounded by strips--dark squares with light strips and vice-versa, in patriotic colors. Many of the pieces came from the 40 boxes of donated fabric.
Then there were some postcards for special friends, and some improvisational piecing.
I finished the chameleon puzzle and thought I'd give puzzling a rest, but this clown fish one looked so easy with its sharp, clean lines. It did prove fun and not a challenging as the chameleons. Tarbaby is an equal opportunity puzzler. When he wants my undivided attention, he just parks himself where I can't ignore him--on the puzzle, on the fabric, on the computer keyboard. He loves to hang his head off the edge of a table.
But this is his favorite position of all.
I participated in an exhibit this month called Sacred Threads in Virginia, in a section called Eye Contact. The pieces were 5" x 23" and featuring human eyes. It must have been a fascinating exhibit to see in person!
