It's for a grandson that lives in th UP of Michigan. He loves the Detroit Lions, even if they lose! I guess that’s a true fan, lol.
I printed out the teams logo onto 81/2x11 paper. Then folded it both directions into 8 segments, oh,,, what was I thinking??? If I had just done it by 1” squares my life would have been so much easier. I knew my center panel needed to be a finish size of 34x51, and my 'grids'were somewhere about 5x6 that I then drew each grid from the printout onto freezer paper. You think I’d have been smart enough after that to just put fusible all across the blue fabric I was going to cut it from, but nooooo! I iron the freezer paper on, carefully cut it out and then the panic set in! I was able to get misty fuse onto the back in sections, then iron it in place. Next I stitched around the edges before longarming it with a football design. I’ll show you a closeup of his front paw, I didn’t plan it, but a football landed in his paw !

Glad this one’s ready to go out.

Terry, thanks for sharing all your drawing and embroidery work. It's very interesting and I'm giving you a pat on the back for completing them all!

A challenge when the new forum is up and running sounds good. Does anyone know when that will be? Hopefully some of our friends will come back to hang out with us.

Have fun investigating your grandmother Eileen. Life is more interesting than fiction.... :)

Happy weekend everyone! geneva

Wendy, I hope you're talking about January for the Doodlewash challenges! I'd have to be a lot more organized in my life before I attempted something like that.
Terry, I hope your birthday was fabulous! :) I've saved your blog so I can read all about your creativity.

Hope everyone has a great weekend. Today, I'm off to Poughkeepsie to start researching my Mom's family. My grandmother was adopted out by her mother to an uncle when she was a child. We know nothing about her father, only her mother who started a whole new family and reentered my grandmother's life when she was an adult. Weird, right? Wish me luck.

Terry,
You’ve definitely been having some fun creative time with the family.

Wendy,
I just copied off the Doodle Wash’s prompts for May, and I think they’d be great ‘prompts’ for a mug rug challenge,,,,,,

Why not do a challenge a day. I joined the Doodlewash one for over a year, you are given a topic/word a day and can share it online with others which helps you gain confidence. It's just a small painting and excuse to get another sketchbook B) doodlewash.com/may-2019-art-challenge-a-color-a-day/

Between Marilyn's eggs, Geneva's bags and Wendy's lunch photos. . .lots of fun has been happening!!!!

Today is my actual birthday. I've been fortunate to receive sweet wishes from dear friends. It's been a great day! I've spent the last month quilting circles/pebbles on the star patch quilt so although I've been quilting, I don't have much to report regarding quilting!
I did share a previous book club quilt I called "Window Boxes."
I participated in an online workshop regarding sketching/drawing/mixed media/painting techniques. It was an awesome opportunity to practice with tools using techniques I hadn't tried. It was fun. I sampled all 26 of the activities.
Post 1, Post 2, Post 3, Post 4 My goal is to improve my drawing skills and to practice a little every day. A happy surprise is that I found that I like painting with watercolors. I haven't had a watercolor paint set since I was in 4th grade!

I completed the April machine embroidery lesson. Miss J is closer to the finish on her "girl" project and I went fishing

. It was a great month even with no finishes!

Geneva, I really like those bags! Have a great time with your friends. My quilt guild has recently started a Dear Jane group, so Brenda's creation is alive and well. :)

Happy Birthday Sharon! I wish I could get on Medicare. :( Yesterday was my day to post, my half birthday, but I completely forgot!

I've already showed you the 6 bags of stash I am donating. That took awhile to sort through this past month. But I did get to do some sewing. I made 4 bags for my daughters and daughter in loves for Christmas! Yippee for getting them done early!

I used a pattern from Annies. It wasn't easy, but by the fourth one I had the hang of it.

Next week I will go to San Antonio Texas to retreat with with my friend Kathy Saunders at our friend Brenda Papadakis' home. I'm so excited! Kathy, Brenda and I worked together for Kaye England in Indiana in the late 1980's -early 90's. That's when Brenda found the Jane Stickle quilt and Dear Jane was born. I will be working on Christmas quilts for my four children's families. I'm making easy trees, in 3 sizes for lap size quilts. I bought 1 yard cuts of about 12 fabrics. We'll see how they turn out!

Spring is here. The dogwood as bloomed and my zinnias are planted. :cheer:

Hope all is well with you. geneva
