Clara’s quilt-made for my new granddaughter

Clara’s quilt

I thought I’d make a quilt for my new darling girl! People always rave about how differently they feel about their grandchildren! I do believe it is a special love one has for them!
I played around with ship ideas because I didn’t want to make a gener specific quilt, this time. It turned into a sailboat, with a hull that opens to allow some little toys to live inside. I made appliquéd a kitchen, lounge room, bathroom dining room. I appliquéd animals all over the deck and fish whales and dolphins in the water.
I love this quilt and am working on a pattern, if you would like.
I just have to finish the little book and set up Paypal.

biro on canvas

the joy of a biro pen, can be extended to drawing straight on the canvas itself.

Somehow this use of canvas instead of paper gives the drawing a kind of importance, like a drawing under glass and a carefully cut matt.  To draw in this manner, on canvas, makes your viewer, even yourself feel the importance of the work.  Weird, but true, importance is all about presentation
