My Father was a Coho, my mother.....................




I just couldn't leave this unfinished!!!!
A good 6 hours yesterday and another five hours today. I'll have to think on how to mount and finish this.

Fabric Collage with the Girls

I had long admired from afar the collage works of some very familiar artists who are working and publishing today: Laura Heine, Susan Carlson, Joan Colvin, Dale Fleming, Ruth McDowell and David Taylor, to name just a few.

More than one of my small Fibre Arts group had taken a workshop along these lines so we decided to "Wing It' with our own compositions/patterns. After one afternoon gathering to make sure we were all on the same design page, we had our day at the quilt shop, Creative Sisters in Kitchener, where we rent their classroom work space.
What could be better? Lots of space, light and conveniences and if you need fabric?...it's ten feet thru the doorway.
Just a few finished and some will be a long time completing their work but here's the results of about 6 hours of HARD WORK. At times it was so quiet..........😊

I grouped the progression of each member's piece. Some seems to hardly change and other flow to a colourful completion. Some day in the future, I'll revisit these in their finished and mounted form Enjoy!

She's FINISHED! Jane is completed

I can move on with my life.
The weather has been too iffy around here so an indoor shot is what you get.
The scallops were an interesting challenge. I think I will avoid them in the future,..... or at least ones that are so tight.

Sorry. Not Been Posting....Not Creating.....I've been distracted.

By this....

Davyn Coen Davey Vogul, our first grandson.

We haven't been into Toronto to visit yet as baby is doing "daycare" in the NICU with lingering jaundice issues. So we chat with mom daily and OOOOOOOOOOOOOooo over the pictures but Grumpa (short for grumpy Gramps as he's decoded he should be called) is getting antsy and we will likely wake up one morning soon and GO!

So its been hard to focus....I'm sure you understand.

Jane has her Ruffle

I completed attaching the bias binding by hand, this morning. Now I can spend leisure? time finishing the binding around the scallops for this quilt.It took me a few minutes to work out how to neatly finish that inner corner, but we're good to go now.
