Another Yahoo Group

I've had this group for a couple years now. Started out as the idea of sending and receiving a variety of Christmas cards, and went on from there. Now we send cards out once a month to people in our assigned groups.

Artistic stuff, and quiltathon pictures

This is proof of my having attended the Tucson Quilt Guild's 2007 "Quiltathon". All quilts made for this are given to charity.

This is me hard at work. Note how focussed I am.

This was a table devoted to tying quilts. Karen in the red cap, Kathy
standing up. Mary, my sister, is on the end on the right. I don't
recall the lady's name who sat beside me... Dottie? This was
Tuesday evening, 8/8/07.

Okay, this is the collage I did for Tessa's retirement.

For Tessa's retirement, some pictures of activities
in the department, Jen's wedding, and her baby
boy, Joaquin. The lady in pink symbolizes Tessa's
walking for cancer fundraising.

The collage is mixed media done on an art canvas. Acrylic paint, Mod Podge, some spray stuff I was trying out, various art papers. Of course I missed some people like Lupe and Laura, but I'll get them another time.

interesting website

I snagged this from one of my Yahoo art groups-

Abandoned Village in Italy

Lovely photos, kind of haunting, but I think it is really interesting. Why was it abandoned? I don't know.

Today was the quiltathon. I took the day off from work, and helped. Its kinda of funny as I don't really sew.... I mean, I can work a sewing machine to a certain extent but anything more than sewing a straight line is taxing my ability. So usually what I do is "tying". I managed to get one, yes one, quilt done. Wooo.

But over all I think we did pretty good. We must have gotten at least 50 done completely. My sister will find out the real number in a couple days. She has to recover first.

The Closer - I love this tv show.
