A quiet weeked.

I decided to  treat myself to a couple of days of sheer indulgence, I sat wrapped in a quilt on the settee and watched TV and ate too much.

Goodness, I felt like a slug last night, but I guess the body is rested.

I'm cold…. despite the heaters in the house and the studio… I feel
the cold terribly, each year it gets worse and I sort of feel like
hibernating… that's what happened this weekend.

I've had a frustrating time painting the quilts for the book, I just didn't like them….so I decided to just concentrate on the designing and finishing of the letters.

As far as the Apple tree for the "A" block is concerned, after four or five samples I finally like this apple tree to go into the quilt.

Considering that I've worked on the Apple tree illustration this weekend, I decided to use it as my challenge block for this week…. oooh, how far behind am I.?IMG

At first I added a character in to the trunk of the tree, but it wasn't whimsical enough, he looked a little scary.

So I rubbed him out and created a line drawing.

 

I think it would look nice as an embroidery…

Now I'm going to quilt it.  How, I don't know…. I just think I'll let it talk to me….!!!

    The face in the trunk reminds me of the wood sprits they carve into canes, walking sticks, and odd pieces of wood in the Ozarks, Branson, Missouri area.
