Mystery complete

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.
