Mini-quilt madness

So, I have MOSTLY finished the mini-quilt.  What do you think?  I think that it needs something…messy, added to it.  I haven’t decided what, though.  So, in the meantime, I’m just going to leave it.  Let me just say that finishing this little thing was a serious effort, as my sewing machine was NOT cooperating.  Luckily, when I took it to Marie’s Sewing in Woburn, they were so helpful and got me back on track.  That machine is VERY temperamental/fussy/prone to pouting and refusing to work.  Much like me!  We’re a perfect fit!  Anyway, I’d like to keep going with the quilting.  Maybe if I make enough of these, I can join them into one big quilt.   Notice that I do not yet have the energy/gumption to make a big quilt in and of itself.  Someday…


Woodblock prints…it’s a start

Hey!  These are my first woodblock prints.  I like them!  Yes, I have a long way to go…but I like the graphic quality of them.  Also, carving them is very satisfying, but messy.  Maybe I should say satisfying AND messy!  I’m pretty much wanting to grab onto any hunk of wood to start carving away at it.  Why not the coffee table?  It’s sort of in sad shape anyway, right?  (just kidding!)
