|The view from my sewing table (yes that's today's view!)|
Well I'm into hour 6 of the quilting work on Sign Signs. And its going well. Very Well! Do you want to know why??

I'm now into some really nice King Tut that is going to add a little subtle color change. I should finish up the bricks tonight.
Sunday for the jury process at the Erie Art Museum's Spring Show.
So what I have you been up to creatively??
