Bits and pieces for now

Glam Girl
 This summer, I have been taking a couple of online artsy courses from Joanne Sharpe.  They are so much fun!  And I didn't even know I could actually do this!  It has been years....and I do mean years since I have really tried to do much art.   Most of what we are doing is creating art journals.  Here are a few of my pieces.

Last Saturday, we had our Quilts of Valor Sewing is a little bit of show and tell for you...Enjoy!

This is a sampler made from orphan blocks that have been donated to us.

OK...all of you Elvis fans stop drooling!

This was an unfinished Round Robin that was donated and finished by a member of the sewing bee.

Yellow Brick Road pattern, but I think we will call it Road to Freedom

Scrappy Stars...don't you just love it!

Hope you are all doing something today
 that makes you happy!

I'm so envious of your artistic talent. If it's truly been a while since doing anything this artistic, rest assured that you have NOT lost your touch. Lovely!

Good for you with your QOV group. All those quilts will be much appreciated. It's been too long since I've made any, and they're definitely as important as anything I sew. I need to step it up and make some again. Such a nice variety made by your group.

You have a flair for this art! Beautiful work. It has been years since I tried anything, too, and it is probably better left that way. : )
What wonderful things your group is doing for QOV!

Great QOV quilts. I'm old enough to remember when Elvis went into the army. Someone will love getting that quilt.
Your drawings are wonderful. I have to admit, as a cat lover, Max the singing cat is my favorite.
