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

March Madness in the Middle

GO NC State, SORRY Duke!!!

Has anyone seen the Cartier jewelry ad with the leopard on ABC
 that has been airing this past week?
It is the most beautiful advertisement
we have seen in a long time, so well done and if the budget allowed,
we would definitely shop there.
We try to avoid TV commercials, but this one was impressive. 

On the design wall  are a few items to share.

A beautiful Christmas quilt done by my friend Phyllis ..
a Crab-Apple Hill pattern, "Over The River and Through the Woods"
Lots of embroidery with, according to Phyllis,  "not so funny words"
were used in the making of this quilt.
A true masterpiece currently being quilted for her.

I have not even thought about starting my kit for this quilt.

My March UFO in progress 
 is called Jewel Box.
 This was a Golden Girl's swap project of D9P blocks
two years ago - time to get it done.
Sure hope there are enough blocks left to complete
five more rows - fingers crossed.

Just Takes 2, Unit 4 is complete -
Unit 5 has been posted and happens to be
a feathered star - goodness - remember my Civil War Star?
That will be a challenge and I hope I still love this BOM.
Never completed because of illness.

Unit Four
This is "French Inspiration"
a table mat that I made for my very special friend, Joyce Highsmith, who is moving away to Charlotte to be closer to daughter..
Pattern is from the book, Table Talk, by Gundrun Erla
and has lots of patterns for runners and  toppers.

 St. Patrick's Day wall quilts that I display every year.

May the road rise up to meet you,
May the wind be always at your back,
May the sun shine warm upon your face,
The rains fall soft upon your fields and,
Until we meet again,
May God hold you in the palm of His hand  Judy C

Gracious girl - how your fingers fly!! Though never having done this particular quilt...Over the River by C.H. is one my favorites.
Congratulations on this accomplishment.

Hope this finds your bronchitis a thing of the past and you are feeling 100% better!
