Art With My Little Friends

Talya drew a picture and then wrapped the edge around a skewer to make a flag.

Ashton participated in the 'youth' category at the Pine Belt Fiber Art and Quilt Show in Hattiesburg.

Delta with her page all colored up.

Paulina and JJ came to make art one afternoon. They are from Texas. Their dad hauls cotton bales for the local gin each fall.

Paulina and her turtle.

JJ and his kangeroo.

Paulina's stitched straight lines are impressive.


I look forward to these children coming back to finish up their projects.

Teryn makes sure none of the page is left uncolored.

Preparing Supper for Sheila

From an old photo of my Mother peeling potatoes while my next younger sister Sheila watches with her dolly ...

... I tweaked it with a photo filter and printed it on fabric and ...

Pinocchio

Our local quilt guild is making a quilt, just for fun, with blocks depicting Fairy Tales or Mother Goose rhymes. I chose Pinocchio for my block.

I made copies to use as templates from a coloring book type image. I used this technique with some of our grandchildren that you can see HERE.

Each piece was cut out and fused to the black background.

Progress

I tried this background but liked the checkerboard best.

Pinocchio - 12"x12" finished and ready to be turned in.
