Work on the Mandala quilt continues, although I have hit a snag in being able to quilt the rust dyed fabric! So it is sitting to percolate for a bit!!!!
Meanwhile the flowers around the property continue to show off!

The ArtCGirlz are in the midst of creating mandalas in preparation for an upcoming show in Batavia. This is the beginning!
I knew I wanted mine to have a music theme. I started with a piece of muslin that my friend Kathi rust-dyed for me. I lightly dyed it with Dyna-flo and added the center music symbols The white is freezer paper as a stencil to stencil paint some wording---maybe! Stay tuned!!

I saw this shop on an HGTV program - "You Live in What?" It is an old grain mill converted into an antique shop with an apartment above where the owner lives. It was a fun place to visit and shop (yes I found a couple of things, very reasonable) and the owner is very interesting and friendly without being "in your face".
