Hard at work all day, on a Maui Chicken quilt. This will take several days more to finish. It’s a center piece for my upcoming solo show at 212 Arts in February. The reception is Feb. 18, 7 to 9 p.m. It will be the Grand Opening of the New 212 Arts! 23 steps west of the current building.

Gaines Collins came up with a terrific way to use printed squares fabric, for wrapping gifts. She sewed 3 sides by machine, then hand stitched the last side, after filling. The long red thread pulls off to open. Now I have a use for the 12 Days of Christmas fabric I’ve been keeping.

Holly Kreag and Nancy Miller participated in the Cafe Challenge, to make art based on a take out cup. Holly made a luscious cup of Java, and Nancy made a delicious Mocha Chocolate lip balm. You already saw my entry. Aren’t these nice people creative?
