My friend Patrick and I have been playing a word a day game for the month of November. We give each other a word to interpret with a photo or art or a quote. Recently my word was "niveous". It means "white" or of a " snowy" nature. Being in the northern part of the U.S. I've used the word a lot....he being from the warmer southern half of the country. Anyway we have had our first measureable snow and it is pretty. This is what I like for Christmas Eve and day...and them it can be gone

Saturday I went to see the RAFA show in Clifton Springs, It is awesome and I don't just say that because I'm a part of it.....it showcases everyone's work to a really high level.
While there, my husband fell in love with a Beautiful wood table crafted by a local artist. We now enjoy this table in our living room. A wonderful day!

Wendy came to Batavia a couple of weeks ago to do workshops and a lecture. I took her Out On A Limb class. This is my completed piece...I think I am done!

This quilt was my second quilt using the birch tree theme. The green rectangles are fused mosaic style onto an autumn print batik. Birch trees were cut from appropriate fabric and raw edge fused...some fraying of threads gives texture to the trees. Snippets of red fabric are machine quilted to give the appearance of falling leaves.
The best part was when we were driving to take the quilt to the arts center we kept going by forests of trees and I would exclaim - Look - there's my quilt"!" It was neat to see the effect after the quilt was done instead of before as for inspiration!
