Another view - you can see some of the stitching - it looks crooked because of the gradations, but it isn't. This is just to be a background for some dimensional leaves. In the orange sections I will portray - lichen. How? I'm not sure yet - but I have a couple of ideas. It needs to pop off the quilt and be dimensional.
Much better colors of the background - and these are the thread embroidered leaves I will be attaching.

Prompt: New name. Let's meet again, for the first time. If you could introduce yourself to strangers by another name for just one day, what would it be and why?
Easy - my alter-ego name is "EJ - my initials without my last name! Why? I think it sounds like someone who is cute, spunky, energetic, creative, popular (everyone wants her around).

Prompt: Travel. How did you travel in 2010? How and/or where would you like to travel next year?
Easy: My big travel was a cruise. We were aboard the Carnival Glory for a trip to New England, Canada, Nova Scotia etc. It was our 40th anniversary celebration with good friends of ours. We had a fantastic, supper, wonderful, unforgettable time together. I'd do it again in a heartbeat. It was noteworthy as I went out of my comfort zone to travel in a different way - one where I gave up control, just different than I had done before........and most thought I would never follow through on.
Next year? I don't know - we're hoping for another joint trip - maybe to warmer weather!!!! Having said that - I'd still like to go to Alaska sometime!!!
