Happy Easter

I hope all of you have a wonderful Easter. These are the agates and sea glass I found yesterday. I decided they were my Easter Eggs... I was hoping for a repeat this morning but it is raining and the wind is blowing. :-(

I don't think we will be going for a walk on the beach. Have a great day!

Second Section of The Colorful Quilt

It is coming together slowly. I have added the second section.

This quilt is such fun and such a surprise. I have been moving slowly but I am loving the results. It has been a challenge picking colors but I do think I like how this looks so far. There are so many options with the color selection. I am not following the suggestions on the pattern. I like to do a bit of my own thing. Sometimes it works and sometimes not so much. But I think it is working here. :-)

I am enjoying the little bits of spring we are getting. We get a bit of sun and then the rain returns. We have received over one hundred inches of rain since October. This is amazing to me, and we have not floated away, Yet. Today it is sunny and there is a chance I will spend time on the beach rather than in the studio.

"My Favorite Artistic Advice" Tales Of Mere Existence

I wanted to share this with all of you. My mom sent it to me this morning.

I thought it was something we could all learn from.

Have a great weekend!

The Colorful Quilt revised

Well, here is the new version. I posted a photo a couple posts ago of my original version of my colorful quilt. I had used Gray and just was not happy with the way it turned out. I have been looking at it for a week and just was not happy. So yesterday I took it to the quilt store and picked out another background. So here it is...

I am very pleased with the new version. What do you think?
