Back in My Happy Place

Saturday, October 5th, 2013


I have been either moping around or at the Dr’s office getting poked and prodded. I have a mysterious medical problem and the cause has not yet been found. I am having an ultrasound next week and hopefully I will get some resolution. I hope it is nothing and will go away.

Today, I needed to get out of my funk so I headed to the studio this afternoon to work on some pet postcards for Pokey Bolton’s project to benefit Friends for Life. You can read about it here. The postcards will be sold at IQF in Houston. Last year, they made more than $20,000.

I made two screens. One is Scooter in the downward dog position and one of my beloved Maggie, long gone.

Here is the Scooter photo that I used.



I am using scraps of my art cloth as the background. It will be fused to batting and have some quilting and then cut to postcard size.




On the Maggie prints, I want to free motion quilt, “Every inch a Terrier!” We heard one of the commentators at the Westminster Dog show say this, and we felt it fit our Maggie perfectly. The image is a drawing I did of her when  I took a print making class back when we lived in Wilmington.

So that is it from here for today. Hope you are having a great week-end.
