Finished a gorilla and now I'm working on a unicorn. Yes, I know the unicorn traditionally didn't go into the ark, but my ark will have a unicorn. I have found some nice images, particularly in art as it is the animal of Scotland. I've tried contacting an artist who works in horsehair jewelry to see if she will make me a tail. Any horsehair workers reading this???? The tail, in lore, is more of a lion's tail rather than a horse. And the unicorn has a beard.

I finished a small quilt.
Bought a table runner kit and with the way they cut it and packaged it, I had enough fabric for the kit runner (the extra fabric was for the backing, but I used it to make 3 more basic table runners).
So, pictured are the quilt and 4 table runners (the runner on the right is the kit pattern, the other 3 are 10-minute table runners, no batting in them). The runners aren't quite finished yet, the kit runner needs to be layered, quilted and bound; the other three just need the ends tacked.

I bought a pattern for this Noah scene. I worked it on some Irish linen I had, which has rather a primitive feel to it. I did not realize the color choices for the pattern would look so different on my linen. Not good. So, I think I will go ahead and order the fabric suggested in the pattern and work it again. I rather enjoyed it, though I can't count worth a darn anymore and had to tear out parts of it many time

I made my first frame all by myself. I used some old wood from a torn down house--I think it was from a door jamb. It already had a lip (I can't use a router). It's amazing how much length is needed because of the waste at the corners. My husband kindly did not laugh at my effort. But I think I will do better next time. I'm getting more comfortable with the miter saw. frame.jpg It suits my primitive decor.

Working on a mystery quilt for quilt guild. Got my individual monthly pieces done a little bit ago, and at the March guild meeting we got the final directions for assembly.. The directions are a bit sparse, but there is a picture, so fairly easy.
Here's my center block and the first round of blocks that go around it (not sewn together, just laid out for pic).

That reminds me of looking through a kaleidescope. I don't know how you can figure it out!

The individual blocks don't show much by themselves, but put them in the right order and you have interesting pattern. Shoot, I don't have individual pics of the two blocks that make up the side and corner pieces for the blocks that go around the center block. About the only pic I didn't take while I was making the pieces.
