The Sun is Shining

It has been awhile seen I posted anything .
We were out in Cherryville yesterday , what a great day
 I did some quilting before I left though . It takes me 1 1/2 hours to sew from one side to the other so I am doing 1 1/2 inches of quilt in that time . Patience Gail. I have 13 inches left to do ( Approx size 61"X46") So 13 " by 61 "
I do not know if that makes any sense .
I have been designing some cool stuff lately , a plan is developing in my head as to what I am going to use them for . Possibly for my classes The Art of Painting on Fabric . Something to go in the kit
I hope to also design a series of crossstitch patterns , that is for the future

The Quilting of The Quilt With no Name

I am almost finished the quilting of the sky .
The quilting is so relaxing and almost comforting . The quilt starts to lie flat and feel as though it is becoming complete . Felling good...

Short Week

It feels like we just got home from Vancouver . Wonderful Easter
This week though was about getting all the jobs that were suppose to be done over the weekend complete
Yet there is light at the end of the tunnel and I am going to quilt today ya!!!
Actually the quilting is looking good . The dyed and painted back fabric looks like old barn wood. With the quilting it is giving the back fabric the grain of the wood effect
I am loving Superior Thread it is so...smooth
Photos soon

Another Day in Vancouver

The wind is a little calmer than it was yesterday . The sun actually came out
I am surrounded with family ,  the kitchen has been my friend all afternoon . The food was great , Lindsey did a good job. 13 people for supper
I hope to do some drawing either tonight or tomorrow , I feel that I have to get back to it soon
I prefer hiding in the bedroom every once and awhile , that is why I am writing this now
I showed Brynlee and my Brother my sketch for Th Three Sister's Three , they like it

Easter in Vancouver

The wind is blowing and it is cool outside actually quite a switch from Vernon.
The Quilt With No Name I left at home cause it is already to start quilting TQWNN is ready and waiting.It feels very strange to be away from home and my art work . I brought a few things with me to work on yet it is not the same . When I am at home almost every room contains some art project that I am working on . Basically I just go from one room to another . My quilting studio is the old dining room , I love where it is situated in the house cause I can close the door and it is very private and quiet
I think I am going to do some sketching today , I am hoping to come up with some good designs for my The Art of Drawing on Fabric kit that I am working on . I have a few but they are not doing anything for me at the moment . I also want to design some new Stain-glass quilt patterns . I have four that I will be putting them on my blog soon . Swan Lake , Iris , Double Your Blessings and Panda Reflections
Happy Easter

The Computer Is Home Again

I think there is still something upsetting the computer
The Quilt With No Name is at the quilting stage
I am very happy so far . That is about all I have been working on for the past couple of weeks . I enjoyed working with Superior Thread for the threadwork such a beautiful thread to use . Oh and I like their needles as well
The back has been dyed and painted and is ready to go
When starting a new stage of a quilt I am always nervous as soon as I start not too bad and by the second day well...... we are having fun now
I will starting putting photos next week of the quilting
