The Eye of the Quilter acceptance

Two of my photos were accepted into "The Eye of the Quilter" exhibit at the IQA show in Houston.

"Frosty Leaves"

"After the Rain"
I haven't entered a quilt in several years, mainly because I usually forget about it, but I did remember to enter some photos. So if you are one of the lucky ones attending the show in November, look for them.

Yesterday we took a day trip with our friends Barb and Bill, it was a trip we had planned on doing last year but the roads were closed because of fires. A few weeks ago the road was closed because of rock and mud slides, but yesterday was beautiful. We left Weiser went south on US95 to Highway 52 to Highway 55 with a side trip to Garden Valley for a  stop at Snip and Stitch a delightful fabric and yarn shop. I found some threads and a piece of wool that had to come home with me.

Then a stop at the Garden Valley Fiber Arts Faire before getting back on the highway. We then headed north to McCall had a great lunch and drove through Ponderosa Park to the scenic overlook.
Payette Lake
Then back thru McCall and west to 95 again and south to home. A fun day.

Daily stitching updates.

Monthly notions - October

I have a pile of fabric ready to go into an indigo pot, so I'm hoping to get that done this week. The piece of wool above is one of several that I've acquired recently, I haven't used any of them but am very drawn to the wool lately. Maybe there will be some needle felting in my near future, especially since my needle felting machine is now accessible. 


  1. Well done! your photos do need recognition and to be seen by more people.
    I am absolutely in love with the frosty leaves! It is hard to believe it is a photo and not a painting.

  2. You picked a perfect weather day for an excursion.

  3. Kudos on getting your photos accepted. I'm not surprised since your pictures are aways stunning. Love those frosty leaves!
