Snow and Art Quilts

The Mister and I recently took a road trip to visit family in Reno, Nevada. We have driven through heavy falling snow a couple times in the past; this was much more enjoyable. We were traveling after a storm, the hwy had been mostly plowed and was only a little icy. There was very little traffic and sky was gorgeous. These photos were taken using my cell phone, through the window while moving pretty fast, please excuse any blur. 

The smooth white land, sprinkled with black cows, horses, and odd old structures was spectacular. I must have said “It’s beautiful” one hundred times! It’s a nice place to visit but I don’t think I could live there. If you do, you are most certainly hardier than I!

At the side of the road the plow left a cut wall that, to me, looked like a slab of marble… miles and miles of marble!

Even though snow isn’t usually a part of my life, snowy scenes have found their way into some of my art quilts (with much artistic liberty ;<))

Spring Dreams

I walk, a lot and I love how easy it is to snap photos with my phone. Here are a couple from a recent walk. With all the rain we have nature springing up everywhere. The wooden fence, stone, and flower vignette makes the texture lover in me very happy! I felt inspired (and I needed a card for a loved one who is celebrating her 90th birthday!) and so made this quick little fiber flower card. Maybe it will brighten your day too!
