When the band arrived.

I've finished my little quilt for my Internet groups' challenge. You have to click on the picture to read the words. I like this kind of challenge because I get to keep my work and I can just have some fun making it.
This morning, Murphy and I decided since it was a gray day we would return the shoes that I bought for Zeus, before the vacation. Seven degrees outside! The car was warm and on the way home the sun popped out and we took a little photo detour.
Steam was rising from the stream but didn't quite show up on the photo. Everything looked frosted too.

We came home and I did some of my householder chores then set out to the studio. I worked on that challenge piece. I have to say I LOVE MY STUDIO. I had turned up the heat before we drove out to Black Earth. By the time I got up there it was toasty warm. Turned on some music and just started working.

Tonight I meet Zeus at the local pizza place for beer, pizza and the UW B-ball game on the Big screen. I'm looking forward to that.

Tomorrow, I start some serious work on my art doll. Things are just perking along. I love that when it happens. Don't you?

:)Bea Create, create and when in doubt about what you should do, create some more.

  1. Well, this is just the happiest little quilt! Lovely colors that really jump out at you.
    It looks so cold up there where you are. We're getting the white death tomorrow.
    I do love it when the muse is in a good mood. That doesn't happen too often around here.

  3. Thanks Katie Jean, I used enough colors, themes so that whoever follows me has something to work with and I get to keep a cute little quilt. :)Bea

  4. LOLOL Deborah, I took a picture of the red boots. I wiped the drool from my chin and thought about how cool they are going to be when I finally earn them. I know, I know, I could get them now but there is something to be said about holding out for a bonus on reaching a goal.

  5. I'd love to see pics of your studio. Are there some on your blog somewhere. My studio is my table and a nearby closet. (sigh) So I love to live vicariously. One day I'll have a home in the country with an adjacent barn, where I can work to my heart's content.

  6. Teri, for years I had a picture of a white barn up in my fiber studio (the guest room) I would look at it and think some day. When Zeus got the bug to build a barn I joking said that it should have a loft so I could have a studio. It progressed much further than that but seeds were planted, in the beginning. lolol :)Bea

  11. Yvonne, Hayden asked me the same thing and I told her to study on it. Clue, what animals are meat eaters and what animals are veggie eaters? :)Bea
    PS, Hayden got the right answer. lol Now the pressure is on...

  12. Harold is clearly the tiger and he has a sort of smirk on his face too, as if eyeing up the band! Your quilt is amazing. If I'd created it, I'd be cock a hoop! How do you make the animals? They have such great faces too. I also love the stitching on the remaining yellow part.

    Did your team win?

    Hugs to you
    BT

  14. Thanks BT and YOU get the gold star! lol

    Thank you Dianne, the little quilt was a lot of PLAY/FUN. I really like fusing and being able to tell a little story with fiber. My fingers are just too stiff these days to do any hand work like applique. Fusing is the answer now. :)Bea

  15. I love this little fun animal quilt you have made...the colors and the quote are wonderful!!! I also took another peek at your little sand taster...babies just bring a warm glow to my whole being. Pizza sounds great...I bought a spinach and portabella mushroom pizza today when we were out for the pre-blizzard run to the grocery. PEACE, Mary Helen
