My super hero alter-ego

I have given this a lot of thought (well, as much as my short attention span will allow) and I'm pretty sure I have a super hero alter-ego. Her name is I Wonder Woman. She goes about her life saying, "I wonder where I left my glasses," and "I wonder what I did with my good scissors." Almost daily it's, "I wonder what I should make for dinner," and "I wonder if I'd like my hair really really short....or red."
I'm sure I'd get a lot more done if she'd just go away.....oh, look, a chicken!

More cards, Dexter, dyeables....

A few more cards that are or will be for sale at Grand Valley Books.

Dexter sometimes sits with his front feet between his back feet.
Lace and trims that I dyed recently. They all started out white, and through the magic of alcohol inks, have been transformed.

And five more cards. Someone needs to teach me how to move photos around on Blogger. I used to be able to do it easily, but since they  "improved" it, I haven't figured it out.

We actually ate 3 cherry tomatoes a few days ago. There are two more almost ripe and one large tomato, too.

More cards for the bookstore

Two more cards for sale at Grand Valley Books.

And two hearts sent off for a swap on CQ for Newbies.

Just try it....

....just try getting out the back door.

But first you'll have to fight your way into the front door.

Crazy Quilt Journal Project 2015, part 2

I am woefully behind on this project, but still plugging away. I originally pieced the first 3 blocks for January, February, and March at the same time, and thought I was so smart to be ahead of the game. So far I've only embellished 2 of them and part of the 3rd, but I'm happy with them.
I love the silkies I bought to use, and while the blocks may not all get a "saying" on them, I hope to do the little thread sketch for each. We'll see how that pans out.
