My friend Kathi, talked me into doing this - taking a Bra and decorating it - it will be on display for a month at the GoArt Gallery at the Senior Center. It was fun and I could keep going - but it is time for it to be done.

I often say that my quilts are inspired by nature. I'm not sure yesterdays walk or activities will inspire any quilts, but it was a beautiful day on the water................
For those of you who think - "yeah, so what?" - this was at the end of a long pier........I never walk out on long piers - phobias are a horrible thing!
This photo was taken part way out - looking towards the end of the pier - yes, I'm proud of myself!

Isn't she beautiful!!!
Look at all the gulls lined up on the pier!

I tried to find a "quote" about the beauty of rust.....but no ones seems to think there can be any beauty in rust. I beg to differ. This is rust transfer or rust dyeing onto fabric. My friend Kathi, who has the best source of fun shaped metal objects to experiment with, brought this home from her job. It was a large circular something (?) - completely rusted. Look at the different colors, textures, swirls etc.
We laid white fabric over the object, spritzed it totally with vinegar water, smoothed it out and put it into a plastic bag for heat. After several days, this was the transfer. What to do with it!!!!! My husband says it is perfect just the way it is.

|The most perfectly formed little pink waterlily I have seen in our water garden.|
|Look how it is centered so nicely between 3 of the lily leaves.|
|Part of the Convoluvulos plant Martha gave us. My flower is SOOOOOO small.|
|I can't remember what this is...........SIGH|
