Minor Setback

Despite being down with a nasty intestinal bug since Saturday night, I managed to finish fusing my Klee Castles. I am quite happy with this. I am not sure how I am going to quilt it so for the time being it stays on the design wall while I think about it.

I have started a third piece with the chartreuse colors. It is sort of like eating potato chips – can’t stop at one.

I took this photograph of an old cherry blossom tree on our walk today. I love the craggy old tree all dressed in pink like an old lady dressed for a tea party.

Hope I am feeling better tomorrow.

    I love the Klee-inspired piece. Check out my good friend’s paintings of houses from 2008 ~ http://joangold.com/Gallery2008page5.htm ~ all of her work is fabulous, but I’ve always been especially drawn to the little houses.
    Hope you have a good day and that you’re feeling better.

    I a would love to see a photo of those blossoms back lite by the sun. The tree must be quite old judging by the size of its huge trunk.

    I have long been intrigued by Klee’s paintings and other abstract works of art and have thought of them as inspiration for a quilt beginning but have never acted on that urge. Thanks for taking this step and sharing it.

    Oh, I am sorry to hear you are feeling under the weather. No fun! I do love your Castles!!! The circles are really wonderful on this too. You have me inspired to complete the Paul Klee piece I have in the works. Get to feeling better!

  8. You have GREEN grass! Some of the brown stuff is starting to appear as the snow melts.
    Klee castles are wonderful. However, it is the green grass that I envy.

    I hope you are feeling better, too!!! The Klee Castles is wonderful. I love the colors bouncing off each other. I hope you enjoyed making it as much as I enjoy looking at it. I love old fruit trees. Their knarled trunks have such character. I always wanted to make a quilt using the trunk as a female form with the branches and leaves forming her hair. I’ll have to get busy! Take care and feel better. Sunshine is supposed to be on the way!
