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.

UFO October Finishes

Thank you to Judy Laquidara at Patchwork Times for this 2011 UFO Challenge.
There will be another challenge coming up for 2012...
 get your projects together, make a list and take pictures of each one.
and Judy L will set up the "Linky" gadget to sign up sometime in December.
It is so much fun and you do get to complete those PhD's
"Projects Half Done" and keeps you on track throughout the year.

I now have 12 projects done for the year, I added a couple extra,
and that is 12 projects not stashed in the closet and there are still two more months.

This is Angels Unaware - My October Finish - completed yesterday!!!

Could not get a good close up of the full quilt in overcast skies
I did get 10 blocks close up.

This is what I was wearing while putting my quilt together - LoL
 Finally turned cold enough to enjoy the warmth.

A pillow cover completed also
I call it "My Pat's Pillow"

October also included doing the Ghaslie Blog Hop Projects...
There were 54 bloggers that made their own projects from the same
fabric line, Ghastlie by Alexander Henry, and were assigned different days to post them. 
It is still going on this week in case you did not get to follow along.
check for the links.

October was a fun month, sometimes.
Happiness along your journey for November.

Good for you! I just love your redwork angles - and the setting is stunning for them! I did Judy's UFO challenge as well as in two other groups. I was doing real well until our flood and then I started finishing quilt tops donated for our quilt drive for flood victims. So I shipped the rest off to Sarah and they are being done and off to homes as they should be.

Kathryn D. Duke said...

Oh just make me so darn jealous. The red work angels are beautiful!! One day, yes one day, I AM going to start on an embroidery quilt. In fact, yesterday a quilter was purchasing the Crabapple Hill's "Winter Wonderland" pattern at Mary Ellen's store and I looked real close at it and then asked her if a favorite of mine by Marcus Brothers- Aged Muslin-was in...thinking that I might get some and then the pattern to really get started...and she was out of the fabric but had it reordered. I just have to buy it and get started.

Love your little pink pumpkins too!!

Pomona said...

That is the most beautiful quilt - I love the red and white combination!

I love your redwork finishes and oh those fuzzy socks...right up my alley! LOL. Though I am not a huge fan of 'The Ghastlies', I absolutely adore the Mug Rug with the quote from "the Help" on it. That quote always touches my heart, thinking of how many people of all ages need to hear those words. Have fun stitching, I'm headed for my sewing room right now! Big Hugslll
