More circle quilt blocks

Today I made a couple more circle quilt blocks. I fussy cut an owl block then made the block using this tutorial.  I, also, finally made a block out of an embroidered worm I made a while back.

Spring Break!

Today we are off to see the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island. It will be great to be outside for a bit spending time with my two little boys.

It seems like I have had the flu forever!  I'm slowly starting to creep out of the funk...  In the meantime, I've been trying to take 30 minutes a day to sketch something new.  Ideally, I would like to complete my still life sketch (required in all art portfolios for entering school) within the next two weeks.  I keep on putting off the still life sketch -- it sounds so boring!  These are my first 3 sketches.....



-- have a nice day!
