Triple Play

King of Pain

Quiltart's annual online journal quilt show here:
Each participant made three 8.5 x 11 quilts with a common theme, hence the Triple Play title.
See the others at the link above.
I made three quilts back in January for the Quilting Arts "Rock On" Challenge, and had plenty of other ideas, so my three pieces in this online show are inspired by three more songs.

AND it made my day Wednesday when Karey Bresenhan, International Quilt Festival's Founder Extraordinare posted to QuiltArt, "...It's hard to pick a favorite, but three of the entries really captured my attention: Ellen Apte, Wendy Starn, and Els Vereychen. ..." What an honor to be singled out by Karey B. (She was also the juror for 500 Art Quilts, so I am doubly honored)!

Uh Oh another new baby

She appeared in the yard one day. Of course, my son picked her up and brought her inside to show me. She immediately decided she had a new daddy. Saturday, she managed to get in between the interior and exterior walls of the house where the water pipes go in for the washer. Apparently she got scared and started to climb until she was between the first and second floors. An extension ladder was required to rescue her and nail the siding back on the house.

A bit of fall color

Not much color here yet, but a little bit is starting to come out. Most of the trees that change color will hold off for at least another month. All photos: Bluebonnet Swamp, Baton Rouge, Sunday, 11/8/09.

Vote for Me!


Vote at the above link for my scarf, Autumn Glory, pictured in the post directly below this one. this month's theme was Happy fall ya'll. Colorful leaves sunprinted in fall colors and overprinted in metallics are the epitome of autumn. This scarf also won a blue ribbon for miscellaneous handicraft at the Rapides Parish Fair.
