Stacey's Christmas Quilt

My sister-in-law, Stacey, has been in the family just shy of two years. So according to my calculations, she deserves a quilt! I think my favorite fabric that made the quilt cut was Michele D'Amore's olive dots (the backing). No, no I take that back....make that Joel Dewberry's Modern Meadow...ahhhh now that a third fabric is coming to mind (Dogwood Voile by Denyse Schmidt) I better stop and just admit that I can't decide. The joy of quilting - I can use them all! When else can I have my cake and eat it too?!

I figure if I can't get quality photos, I might as well get a quantity of photos. Each canvas is 3' x 2' and painted with oil. They might not be finished...but for now they are.

oh, and here's one of my Christmas tree!

M + A Finished Wedding Invites

As you can see by these photos, I don't have the greatest camera nor any photo-take'n skill...bear with me. It's probably not going to get better. I feel the need to say that every once in a while...

Since Miss Molly "Soon-To-Be-Bottorff" lived in my current hometown of Chicago for a while, I thought it would be appropriate to take her invite photos from my roof - where I have a bit of a view. Let me also add that the envelope and the navy backing SPARKLE. Also, the printing quality looks horrendous in these photos. I PROMISE in real life they look nicer. Blame it on my dodging, burning and sharpening (that's photoshop talk). I PROMISE the banding doesn't exist!!! ....promise.
