Christmas is flying in!

Our family Christmas gathering was postponed until Januray 8th this year.  Today is the first installment of our Christmas.  Our third granddaughter is coming along with her parents.  Can't wait to hold her.

Wanted to post some pictures before the flurry of activity. Created some goals and then a one word summary to remind me.  Conquer, Lifestyle, Input and Create. 

I've been enjoying my "playing".  I saw a pattern on a pair of shoes four ladies bought at the Houston show.  As I played with this design, it reminded me of "fiddleheads" (ferns) and also of a vegetation called "snake pipes".  So I combined the two.  Fun to see how curved lines can create dimension.  I've got a lot to learn.  Am enjoying my play very much!

One of the ways I will be able to create art is to put some of the utilitarian projects away.  I've cleared my design wall basically to show the pieces I want to finish.  But I must admit there is a filing system of sorts on the leftside of this wall.

  1. Conquer... I guess that's another way of saying, "Dominate!"

    I like your fiddleheads and the black and gray quilt piece.

    How was Picasso? Learn anything?
