The Masterpiece by Javan

The Masterpiece by Javan

We are born into the world like a blank canvas and each person that crosses our path takes up the brush and makes his mark upon our surface

So it is that we develop

But we must realize there comes a day that we must take up the brush and finish the work

For only we can determine if we are to be just another painting or a Masterpiece. Javan

How Cool is this for July

This is where it was last week .... Walking in a Winter Wonderland in the hottest July ever !!!
and now...

Walking in a Winter Wonderland
The pattern is by Crabapple Hill and I am doing this in Bluework - just seemed like winter. I used Sulky 12 wt thread in Nassau Blue. I love this thread for all of my stitcheries - comes on a spool and there is no splitting the floss - perfect weight for Redword and Bluework. The fabric is RJR's Redword Bluework Revival and a little bit of Dimples thrown in for variety and texture.

"Snowflakes drifting softly down...
                                            Blanketing the frosty ground.
Laughter ringing through the air....
                                            Happy Snowmen everywhere !"

That was the small print up above.The panels have come together to make a statement and each one is better than the one before.

The stars were a joy to make - even though I swore off stars for this year - all 24 seemed to assemble easily and I only lost a couple of points putting them together - a very big Oh Well !!!

The borders ended up exactly the right size and the coping strip did not have to be altered. Yeah!!! I am pretty pleased with this and so glad it is complete, now goes to the quilter and becomes part of her list.This was a perfect pattern and will be a wonderful gift.

Doesn't she look happy !!! My daughter Cathy, who loves all things by Mom, will also be happy when she receives the finished quilt.

Judy sends you happiness along your journey - finishing up UFO's brings joy to the spirit. This has been a good year.

Thank you Judy L. at for the gentle push.
