Putting it in writing...

...can sometimes make it even scarier....DEADLINES.



Although I bought a nifty dry erase board from IKEA so at least I have fun writing all of them down. I liked this one because the frosted glass let's you put a poster or large print photo behind it so you can customize it. My sister-in-law, Jill, took this really cool shot of a zillion rubber duckies when she and my brother went on their honeymoon to Hawaii. Ralph and Jill are awesome photographers (click on their names to visit their Flickr sites.)

Here is one piece that I am working on crossing off the deadline list. I joined the Kansas Art Quilters and they have an upcoming show called Altered Views. Its a spin on the eye exam chart. I'm procrastinating quilting it. My goal is to get it done this weekend and after all, its saturday envening. I have a whole another day to the weekend.



This one is different for me. For one thing, its white. I had to go buy the fabric for it. And yes, I HAD to go shopping for it. White is not a color strong in my stash.

Another thing that makes it different is that I don't plan to embellish the heck out of it. I'm trying to do some more quilts that focus on surface design. I have it up on the design wall right now and I'm thinking once I quilt it I will start to like it more. I like it, just keep feeling like it is naked.

But I promised myself that this one will be surface design and quilitng. Yes, ma'am, I mean it. No embellishments, not even beads. Nope, I swear. Only fabric and thread. *whimper* Wish me luck on this one....

My thoughts are with you, Lynn...good luck and stay away from those neat fibers you have, too, along with the beads!

Keep us posted...
