2017 OMGosh, time is flying by, but somethings just are not getting done

the list…….
  Blog blog blog,  I have let this go for way too long,  so my goal is to update here every week.
  I would like to create more of my  fiber art.     
  Be better at staying in touch with my family and friends.
  This might be silly but I do need to paint every room in our home.
 Last but not least,  have the official plans drawn up for out new home.
Seems like a do able list,  I think the hardest is paint this house!
The photo above is the view we will have from the front of our new home.  

This was my 2016 list of things I wanted to get done.  I do not make resolutions, so just wanted to get these things done.
This is how that list went

#1 Accomplished!!  You can see for yourself.

#2 Accomplished!!  I did 2 quilts for Fly me to the Moon exhibit,  2 quilts for the Heart Mountain exhibit,  I have made several just for me.  I finished the penny bear,  I still want it to be clear coated.  I have almost finished the "Where's Waldo bear,  I have 2 quilts I cannot show and tell that are hopefully juried into a show.

#3 NOT,  other than Facebook, and a few calls to my brother,  this I am still bad at.

#4  I painted one room, my kitchen,  I wanted it back to burgundy, chose the color wrong, it looks pink, hate it,  Have purchased the burgundy I want and have it on the "to do" list.  As well as the every other room in this house

#5  Accomplished,  yes we have the plans for our home drawn up.  It is going to be fun to watch that go t

Our little eagles

This is a life size replica of an eagles nest.   Looks like that eagle is about to go in for a tasty dinner.  We did get to see the real thing, these birds are beautiful, and very large.  It was sad to see them gaged in the zoo.

Just shoes

The theme for this quilt was shoes.  I used a tulle and painted the shoes on it.  Placed it over the yellow and quilted it.  Was a fun experiment.

Fun time at the Zoo

I love this photo.  We had such a good time in Utah.  We enjoyed the zoo for a good part of the day.  Took lots of photos and just had fun watching the excitement these two had seeing the large to tiny animals.

Textile Artist of the Greater Yellowstone Christmas Gift Exchange 2016

The envelope sewn into the binding of the book, below the page from the Heart Mountain Internment Center newsletter

This was fun,  I made a book for the exchange,  half way through making it I decided I really liked this and now have a 2nd in the process. 
To this one I added pages of different textured paper, some envelopes for photos or tickets. A page out of the Heart Mountain Internment Centers Newsletter, it made mention of our fiber exhibit we all donated. 

The finished book/ with all the different pages.

This is Olivia, my Granddaughter.  I think she was about two years old at the time of my making this.  It is 12" X 12".  Her favorite color was and still is pink. So she is pink.
