BYE BYE 2008

Happy New Year!  Now a full year into blogging, I'm still surprised that I have anything to say, and more surprising....that anyone is interested!  I appreciate all of you who've kept me company during our journey through 2008.  As I continue to cut back on my travel teaching schedule, it's a good feeling to know I'm still connected to the outside thank you!

Today seems to be a numbers 10, worst 100, counting down, looking back, and looking forward.  I've become interested in incorporating numbers into my's one of my newest pieces.

This was made as a Christmas gift for our son and his wife.....featuring their new house number of the home they recently purchased.  It was created using felted wool, machine appliqued and quilted and framed. (and shockingly......not one bead!)

Looks naked... without the beads. ;-) Seriously, this is really cool. Love the way you got the angles on the floating numbers.

Happy New Year Mary. I like the numbers piece and was surprised to see no beads. But I like it a lot. Looks like it was fun to create.
