If you are on the Thread Painting site come on over and join in the fun.Look at the DF on the site and you will see what it is about.

Well looks like everyone's busy which I'd say is a good thing for the most part.

I started drawing on the Raindrop Kaleidoscope. It's a little trickier getting it to lifesize than I anticipated because I kind of forgot where my reference points were when I originally drew it. I'll figure it out, but you might be seeing more pics of drawing progress than usual. 

Sandy B- I wish we had leaves to even look at. That point between end of winter and spring bloom where everything looks trashy is still hanging around over here in Wisconsin. Phase 10 eh...used to play that when I was a kid, too with the cousins.

Happy Easter to all.
A cool day, no sun but the tulips and daffs are budding so bring on the sun and I think things will sprout.
Have a good day all.
Comment by Sandy B /AUS yesterday

Ah the cost of having guests but it is fun too. We had lunch with friends and again neither of us won at Phase 10 - a shifty card game but we had lots of laughs and stories about our childhood - memories of 60-70 year olds?? LOL

Welcome Joanne - the leaves are changing colour here in Canberra.

Comment by Barbara Blackwell yesterday

Welcome from me too, Joanne.  Love your work.

We are relaxing after cleaning up from having a dinner for 10 here last night.  That meant starting the day with cleaning up and cooking roast lamb and setting up our round table that fits 14 at a squeeze and 12 comfortably.  Of couse that means it needs to be dismantled and put away and the furniture put back in place.

Cindy I can't wait to see what you have done with the technique I shared.
I don't do alchol but in Hood River Oregon there are alot of micr brews and home brewer's have you tried any.
Comment by QuiltDragon yesterday

Welcome Joanne! Your work is wonderful! Like many others in the group, I really didn't make art quilts, but the ladies here have been great encouragement! Love that you like craft beers...DH and I do also. We just found a local one (Newton, NJ) called Angry Erik Brewery http://www.angryerik.com/. They've been brewing for about 15 years, but just opened a place to the public about 6 months ago. Really good stuff....

Welcome Joanne!  When I joined this group a handful of years ago, I did not know the first thing about making an art quilt, but was intrigued and wanted to give it a try.  I learned in a "trial by fire" by joining the first ever swap, and have never regretted the decision. These ladies are very talented, friendly, loving, and willing to share anything that they know.  

Check out the Technique of the Month Swap, where each month someone shares a technique and how to do it with those who are signed up for participation.  It'd be a great way to learn som new stuff, and share something with the rest of us.

Gotta run for now or I'll be late for my hair appointment!  I hope that you all have a great day!!

Comment by Cindy yesterday
Morning all. Joanne, thanks for the offer, but I do get online at the library and will check out your pages then. At that time Itry to get caught up on everything.

Well, gotta get with things. Am off to my son's to make curtains/valences for his living room.
