Living This Creative Life

I have two favorite quotes. The first one is by Emile Zola, "If you asked me what I came into this world to do, I would tell you that I came to live out loud". I don't know who the second one is by, but it goes like this, "If you're not living on the edge then you might as well jump". Both of these sentiments sum up my personal philosophy of this experience we call life on earth. Enjoy!

I Really Love to Machine Quilt

I really do love to machine quilt - and I believe that it is that love that has made me a better machine quilter. If you really enjoy doing something then you are more likely to do it and the more you do it, the better you will become at it, so then the more you will like doing it and so on - now I'm tired!
Click on the photo of the table runner above to get a better image of it. I made this for my friend Chris for Christmas a couple of years ago. It is made out of lots of wonderful silks in a variety of tans, blues and blue greens. I quilted each area a little differently. It is filled with flowers, feathers, leaves and lots more. It's one of my all time favorites. It was really hard to give away, but Chris is one of my all time favorites too - so it's a good match.

Till tomorrow,
