What's New!! On Off the Wall Friday from Creations - Quilts, Art, Whatever by Nina-Marie Sayre





Well its been a luscious, amazing, busy fall.  I've had a couple of big projects on the homefront that have taken up my time and energy.  Then there is work.  For what was suppose to be quiet little job that I could spend my menopausal years, its starting to get way out of hand.  Busy!  Busy!  Busy!!  Still I do love my customers and being busy in the retail world is not necessarily a bad thing.

Michael Sherrill at the Renwick Gallery on Off the Wall Friday from Creations - Quilts, Art, Whatever by Nina-Marie Sayre

Saving Sadie on Off the Wall Friday from Creations - Quilts, Art, Whatever by Nina-Marie Sayre

15 years ago, I started a piece in a class taught by Cynthia Corbin.  Now we all know that not all pieces started in class merit enough to be finished.  Some are started with bad ideas  and bad design, some are just samples to learn a technique, and some are just techniques that you just don't like to do.  But not this one.  I've  written about Sadie before because more than once I said I was going to save her.
