I really have been doing stuff

I got a job!!! Well, two jobs. One is canvas wrapping gig: my employers (Solart Designs) prints photos/art on canvas and then we wrap them on frames, then ship it. My other job is as an online marketing/blogging person for my favorite quilt shop: Valli & Kim. In between jobs I've been keeping very busy trying new recipes and attempting to finish some projects.

 Oil Painting. The pear is an overdone classic, I know, but Mike ate all the peppers I was planning to practice with. As soon I finished this one, he ate that pear too.

The Quilt Saga. This project has been going for about 8 months now; collecting all the fabric and putting it together. Each block has 100 squares in it and takes about 2 hours to make. This half of the quilt has 1,830 squares in it. I'm hoping to enter it into the state fair. 

Valentines Day Cards. I make 'em my self and send them to family and a couple friends. This all started when I began exchanging Christmas cards with my high school friend Amber and one year I was ridiculously late sending it. Now, I figure to save me hassle during the holidays, send it in February! 

So these a just a few of the on going projects.... I'll do my best to be more diligent in posting on a regular basis. New years resolutions and all that.
