Creatures of the Wild Napkins!

Chris Hearts Collectibles has finished the set of 6 napkins from the Multi Coordinating fabric! These go beautifully with the place mats that Chris has made - each of which  features an animal square. Lovely work, Chris.

Another view of the spectacular sunset overlooking Knik Arm. It is the darkest time of winter - days are short and it is often very cold. However, the pluses still outweigh the minuses.

Liz Lane has done amazing things with Creatures of the Wild fabric!

These pillows by Liz Lane are gorgeous. The subtle touch of using my coordinating fabric, Multi, to make the letters of her granddaughter's name is especially nice!

And here is Liz Lane's quilt. So beautiful! She made the pattern from a program called Electric Quilt.

Another creative woman, Amanda Harne!

Amanda Harne's quilt - she used jewel toned squares around each animal for a beautiful effect!


Wonderful creations from talented women!

LOVE this kitchen art made by Chris Hearts Collectibles! She has made some wonderful, reversible place mats and napkins as well. A very talented lady!

My cast is beautifully done by "Castman," artist-extraordinaire, at Orthopedic Physicians of Anchorage.  I'm recovering from foot surgery - giving me time to gaze at our tree and enjoy life! I hope everyone has a happy holiday season. I look forward to a fabulous 2014 and hope that you do, too!

A fabulous time today at Dina's! Lots of quilting fans showed up, and they were welcoming and friendly I used my snazzy new projector (very tiny, looks like an alien being) to show my updated Powerpoint, Watercolor to Fabric. Many thanks to Dina's Cozy Cabin Quilts for hosting!
