Our new family member

No quilt pictures to post today, but here is what has been keeping us busy at home. We adopted our sweet Sunshine (Sunny) from Labrador Rescuers (San Diego). Though she is about a year and a half old, there is a LOT of pup in her. It took us time to recover from the loss of our old girls, but the time is right now to bring another fur kid into our lives. Sunny has wonderful house manners but is keeping us on our toes since she needs lots of exercise and play. Jerry has been working from home, so it has helped that Sunny has a lot of company as she gets used to living with us.

It's been a very long time since I last posted here at the blog. I think I might be ready to revive it, at least now and then. There is still some quilting activity happening in the studio. I have these lovely bright fabrics to inspire me, and another baby quilt is in the works for my great nephew. There has been something of a population explosion and our family gatherings have become quite lively with all the young ones. It's great fun to see the next generation coming along. I only wish it didn't make me feel so old.

On the art quilt front, I am still making sketches and occasionally one of them actually turns into fabric

As usual, the design process leads to some changes. The color in the original sketch is just to differentiate shapes since I usually wait until I dive into fabric to make those decisions.

I'm not sure where this is going, although I like the shapes very much.
No doubt, with more thread work and stitching, the piece will continue to evolve.
