Welcome to crazyville!

I went to my son's place of work after work last night. It takes about 20 minutes to get there. I dropped of some stuff and visited for a while - he wasn't busy - he works at a golf course. I stopped an picked up my collage pictures, got gas and finally was back at the house about 6:30. By the time I got something to eat, it was just too late to start anything. I was tired. Here is my list for today. I feel like I live in crazyville with running and taking care of my brother's house and mail, running to my son's, being slammed at work, and trying to find time to pay my own bills and sew! I know I am not alone - I know many of you feel that same way.

Walgreen's is having a 50% off sales on prints this week so I got these colage prints made of my art quilts to pass out at the library exhibit. I don't know anything about editing or croping so I know these could look better, but with the gray background I don't think they look too bad. I only had 10 made so that I could see how they looked so now I need to order more.

Here is a picture of four more quilt tops I sewed together this past weekend. They will make fun baby quilts.

To celebrate Ricky Martin appearing on Oprah today I am posting a picture of a picture (I did not have a digital camera in 2000) of the quilt I made for Ricky. I made sure it was long enough since he is 6'+. I am taping the show so I will watch it when I get home from work.

Onward I go!

It sounds like you are getting a lot done even though it is crazyville! by the way I have been to crazyville before, and I try to avoid it as much as possible. Sometimes you just can't. I hope you get all of your things done for your show.

Patty, I just found your blog from Char's and I am loving the lines you create in your pieces and use of color! SO beautiful and I smile as I can imagine how it feels to be getting so much created, I share those feelings often!
