Landscape workshops.

Greetings All,
I have been working on an outline for a landscape workshop and here are some of the image of pieces that can be completed in this workshop.  Below is Landscape-I my stage one workshop.

Below right is the next image of Landscape-II that can created in my workshops and it's a bit more complicated.  It is a flip-n-quilt piece and I love the easy of the wedges that allow you to add some highs and lows to this piece.  More to come, so stay connected.

Marion Anderson - Update

Greetings All,
Here are photos of the microphone bank to be appliqued in the foreground.  The top photo is without embellishment and the bottom is with embellishments.  The buttons come from three different people who I am so very grateful to have in my life and their love keeps on giving.  Now for some handwork to get this completed.

Marion Anderson - update

Greetings All,
I have been working on a new piece for to debut at the Gems of the Prairie Quilters show for a couple of months and thought that I was there.  However I made a mistake in the photo-transfer product that I bought.  I did my research on the images I wanted and I did my editing in Photoshop.  I printed by collage and learn during my ironing that I had gotten the wrong thing.  This product dose not like water.

Below on the left is my 1st effort and the image on the right is my completed choice.  I used water as my friend and shaded the whole image in the foreground and bought some Scotch Guard fabric protector.  Lemons into lemonade and loving it.  More to come later and you know it.
