Holiday Season Begins

Our newest grandbaby arrived November 20, 2006 weighing in at 7 lbs 8 oz. She was born in Insonata, Mexico so we have not held her yet. This has been an emotional week with Emma's birth. Our other grandchild and his parents came for Thanksgiving.

Friday I received my copy of Quilting Arts Magazine with my self portrait in it. Finally it was published. It was left out of the printing of the quilts that had been selected from the challenge. What a wonderful photographer they have.

The next challenge for the magazine was to take a photograph and abstract it. I did 4 before I was satisfied with what I wanted to send in. I have up loaded the 3 that I decided not to send.

I am now working on some journal quilts and when those are finished, I will put them on the blog.

Thanksgiving week

Preparing for a busy week. I am trying to do some house cleaning, but there are many distractions and creative work that I had rather be doing. I love the statement about a clean house represents a very dull woman. I know that is not exactly the quote, but it has the same meaning. My husband's birthday is Wednesday, November 22. We are eating with friends on Thanksgiving day. Our oldest son, his wife and the adorable grandson will arrive on Friday. "Our" Thanksgiving meal will be on Saturday. Just so we are together...that is all that matters.

This is a close up of a quilt I finished last year for my brother's birthday. He
is an avid fisherman when his schedule allows. When his family visits the north Georgia mountains, he enjoys the trout fishing.

Linda Daughtry


This quilt has had quite an adventure. It was accepted by Quilting Arts magazine to be part of the traveling exhibit. It was created by using a batik method on the fabric. Free form quilting drew the lines for the features on the face.
It will be in the 2006 winter edition of Quilting Arts Magazine.

This is a quilt that I created for a guild challenge. You had to use black, white and gray with 5% of the quilt as a color. The iris of the eye is green.
