Spring Surprises

We’ve lived in our house for over thirty years and though there have plenty of alligator lizard sightings this is the first year we have spotted them copulating – three pairs in two day! It looks like quite a violent act and can last for hours. Luckily kitty didn’t notice the pair next to the BBQ on “her” deck! I have a good photo of that pair but seeing as the females head is in the male’s mouth I have decided to spare you and instead post another MeAnndering (on paper) piece, Kona supporting me in my art, and a piece that is under the quilting needle right now. Don’t let the patchwork fool you, I plan on painting it (more about that in a later post). How is the weather where you are?

Quilt, stamp, or both?

I have this little pillow made from my hand painted fabric that was originally going to have buttons but then I made the Terial Magic, painted and stitched butterflies and had some other thoughts.

I made a flower stamp out of Sculpey Bake and Bend clay so I could just stamp on the right side of the pillow and add some green leaves.

Or maybe I’ll just use black thread and quilt a flower design OR maybe I’ll do both…
