My holidays have been busy, altho I have done a little quilting. I have machine quilted several 8" x 10" gelli prints, in anticipation of spending time embellishing them with beads and buttons, while I wait in the hospital after my husbands surgery next week. I'll also take my sketchbook and wander around downtown Portland Oregon. I know how to get to Fabric Depot, the BIG fabric store, but I need to find an art supply store, and used book stores. I am sure there are great places to have lunch, besides the hospital cafeteria! So my two week vacation from school bus driving, will NOT be spent quilting :( I may take photos to inspire quilts tho, and sketch patterns and ideas. So I am thinking of it as a time to explore, be inspired by the big city, and get fresh ideas and perspectives, as well as spending a lot of time at my hubby's bedside. Have a great holiday everyone, and a Happy New Year!
My holiday baking efforts, and lots more kahlua truffles.
