I worked some more on the Blue tree quilt.    I took a break from quilting to start on the painting.    I am using acrylic paint and water……I am not worried about a fabric medium since this is a wall hanging and will not need to stand up to washings.

I have a lot of painting to go and a lot of quilting.   This is the small practice version (30″ x 45″)

the bigger one is 60″ square and I will start that soon.

Here is a tour of the garden today (click pictures to enlarge)

I got the old singer stitching beautifully!   I will show you that next time.
Happy Quilting

    Your garden is lovely. Is Teddy helping you paint? Maybe he doesn’t want to stain his fur…..looking forward to seeing what you have done with the latest machine.

    for some reason it reminds me of an oldy song… Blue Moon, you saw me standing alone, without a dream in my heart, with out a love of my own. a sad song. Love your innovation in quilting!

    Oh Tim your Blue moon has blown me away, when I was a child my mum said she had seen a Blue moon one very clear winters night when she and a friend were driving back over the rangers by the lakes and she said all her friends teased her so much she stopped talking about it!, they say it only comes once a life time so may be this is her Blue moon! Cheers Glenda

    I was thinking that the eyebrows of the tree man look like Teddy’s. Neat to see others are noticing the same thing…:)
