I've always liked the saying "Man plans and God laughs", it's so true. In this house just recently "mom plans and the twins giggle" was the order of the day. Family has had me really busy but, with Pets on Quilt coming I planned an easy quilt.
More practice for my free motion feathers, beautiful colors, what more could I want except a dog on it. They wouldn't come near it, I'd pick it up, they'd run out the door, throw it on the floor, they made huge circles around it to avoid it like it was hot lava, this from a dog who grabbed a quilt and tried to run away with it while I was sewing it.
So I'm showing it without dogs, first time I didn't have to crop the little buggers out.
I think my feathers still look like toes and some of them I'm pretty sure I've seen in an Alien movie, inspiration is everywhere, but I'm still proud and think they're beautiful.
I used stencils on the white parts
The back is more of my hand dyed fabric
I've been making quilts specifically to practice feathers, Debbie at Stitchin Therapy has wonderful tutorials on feathers, I can't tell you how many of her ideas I
Yes, you can thank me since I told her I was going to wait patiently for the tute, but she knows I won't, she'll start getting emails from me asking where it is, telling her I'm turning blue from holding my breath and of course the ever popular "don't make me come up there".
Pets on Quilts ends tomorrow (Monday) at midnight so if you haven't joined in, hurry, it really is the best show on the internet, you meet the nicest people.
The closest I came to having a picture.
In other news, about a month ago on my morning walk we saw a trash truck back into a parked car and then drive away, big crash, it took them awhile to get the car off the truck, then they just drove away. I banged on the door and told the car owner what happened and now he's remodeling his home. Yesterday on our walk, we saw a small fire, which grew into a big fire and I had to call 911, police, fire trucks, yep I saved an entire neighborhood :)
I walked around all day yesterday telling everyone I was Batman and singing the song, David is thinking about not letting me out of the house anymore, he says I attract trouble. Life you've got to live it, LOL.
