During the summer, I do not have time to produce much work, so I try to finish up all of my large projects before the end of May.

The stole that I gave to Jonathan was well received and helped to brighten our Easter service. It reminds me of a stained glass window, which is nice since we don’t have one in our current building.


(You can read more about this stole on my website HERE.)

The portrait that I am working on is ready to sandwich and prepare for quilting. I finished the applique work in time to put it on my design wall & show my mother who visited last week. I realized then that I could easily change her eyes — add some color and thus some realism. I did it this morning, very easily. (My mom is an oil painter and I always benefit from her critiques. I wished she lived closer.)
