I received another postcard this week. It's so appropriate for this time of year. I love taking the dog out in the morning to the sound of the birds outside. Since I haven't heard them for months (seems like years) they all sound at least twice as big as they really are. Their little songs just echo in what has been a quiet stillness since at least some time in November. They bring hope of spring with their joy filled songs. Gladys' postcard is full of beautiful birds and I just love it. Gladys is in the learningfa group.
I've also finished the mystery quilt we were doing in that group. I've never done a mystery before and wasn't sure how it would turn out. I'm a little rusty at piecing since I haven't done much of that lately but I do like my quilt. It isn't perfect but then neither am I. I'm amazed at how different each of the quilt's looks. It's a great way to study color. If you go to Shirley's site she has several posted there. She has also recently done a bear thread painting tutorial that is just incredible. Here is one more photo that show some of my design wall. It's just an inexpensive tablecloth with a flannel back. My husband put a small strip of wood along the top of the wall. I glued velcro to the strip, and sewed velcro to the tablecloth. I put velcro on the top and one side so I can hang it either direction. I think it works pretty well. Have a creative day. Janet
