the finished beast

I finished sewing on the new beast.  I decided not to put a face on the beast.  I think he is comfortable just as he is.

The beast gets more stitching

I'm stitching on my beast.  Need to stitch the beast itself.  I have done background on the left side, and the blue moon. The rest of background and the flower/bush in the right corner await the needle.

a new beast

I have been working on a new beast.  He has a sort-of tree to the left.  The piece of fabric I used was too broad for the space, so I folded it lengthwise and used a herringbone stitch to hold it down.  I did a lot of stitching on the tree--need to get to the beast.

Some new pieces

I am working in Pamela Allen's class, About Town, where we will make a quilt representing our place, mine being St. Louis, MO.  We first made 4 small pieces, not quilted, representing buildings here.  I did four, and one of them was based on US Grant's Cabin.  Kind of crazy?

I am also going to the Missouri Fabric Artist's retreat.  I joined this group before Christmas, and I am sort of feeling that I am out of the water.  A recent message from the retreat master stated that we should all bring something for a silent auction.  Oh my--well I had a couple of small pieced things using up some of my favorite color, Indigo, and some bits and pieces of what I thought were unique.  I hand quilted them, and the dragon's house piece was quilted by hand using machine metallic thread.  I hope one of these will be ok.

I'm not sure of the name of the bottom one, now called Puzzle Box.  I have thought of Hidden Gems, but right now it is Puzzle Box. Rosemary
