What I am working on...

I hope everyone had a nice weekend. Despite all our rain which we needed, it was very nice
Thank you to everyone who gave me suggestions for a new photo host program.  I have been experimenting, your eyes will tell me!

So, what have I been up to?

Of course
The Wizard of Oz Quilt.  Here is a sneak peek.

The next step was to fuse him to the background and add the embellishments.

Hmm, I thought that it would be hard to hand quilt around all the pieces so I devised a plan of my own.

You know..




I decided, (with help from a friend, thanks Elaine), to make and quilt the top first.  Then I would add my characters and embellish.
Here is where I am now...




My plan for Halloween 2013 include this!
