2014 is going to be a great!

After a so-so 2013. I know 2014 is going to be a much, much better. I spent January hunkered down working on several new projects and staying busy, busy, busy.  Thursday of this week I’ll be giving a presentation to the Foothills Piecemakers Quilt Guild. I’m so excited! I’m looking forward to meeting new people and making new friends.

Here is what I’ve been working on lately. I typically work on several projects at a time. I work on one project, put it up on my design wall and let it rest / percolate for awhile. Then I work on another piece. My peach rose has been resting for a long while. It’s all applique´. I used orange, peach, red and purple batik fabrics. I also discovered there are not a wide range of fabrics in these colors.

I’ve also been painting a lot of minis. It’s fun to work on a project that only takes a few weeks to complete. I’ve done several irises and a sunflower. All of these brightened the gloomy January!

I hope your February is sunny, bright and full of happiness.
