    Beloved memory: The seasons change and there is a certain smell in the air. I am on The Hill at Syracuse U. It is very beautiful and there will be football tomorrow. Go Orange! I am 19 or 20. My first art project was a monochromatic collage. The prof is awesome. I chose orange.

    you might have seen my husband there! you are , i think, younger. he was in the college of forestry. what else for a brooklyn boy? he graduated in '72 and then went for his masters. not in art classes, but he is quite creative.

    Welcome Julie! So happy you found us. We are small but friendly and lively here. You'll get some good ideas from what we all variously attempt to achieve I hope.

    Looking forward to your memory idea and a WIP--we all seem to love photos and lots of explanations of what did and didn't work for you.

    hi all,

    As you know I am working on a piece to commemorate our burnt house and wouldn't you know it...it seems to have a mind of it's own! The the fabric I salvaged from the debris doesn't fit with what wants to go on the design wall!!! LOL

    The idea is using the Tumbler pattern in a kalidescope of browns, oranges and blacks from light to dark for the fire. Since I am still happy with the direction it's heading I am just going to go with it and see where it leads. Maybe that other burnt piece of fabric is for another work later............ It's been known to happen.

    What are you guys up to and how is it going?

    I have decided to work on a piece to remember my many horse back rides. Yesterday, I even drew a horse head. Don't know what I'm going to do with it, but I have started.

    julie--your comment brought me to an abrupt halt! i spent hours everyday drawing horse heads, and bodies and fields around the horses. lol! my life revolved around horses!! i would have given up either sister for a horse! i never did get a horse, well actually, there are several horses i've been given, but i've never had them! drawing horses was my start into art! i wonder if i could draw a horse today?
    i went to one of my favorite lqs today. they had a 6 foot long arm set up! super cool and just the right size for my lr, which is about to become another part of my quilting room. i won't be getting the la any time soon. it's just under 9 thousand since it's custom made. sounds like another 'horse' to me! i can dream!!

    What an interesting group and idea. A memory project....

    If I think of the older women in my life who are no more, I think of one grandmother who talk me to work with wool (I have not done so for 30 years), a great aunt taught me to bake wonderful birthday cakes and granny gave up on trying to teach me to knit, but willingly made me beautiful sweaters.

    I think I can do something, but I will not be finished in this month.
