Fall Break

I will be out of town for the first part of October. We're heading out to the coast of Washington for a vacation. This is a postcard I just finished for a Stitchin' Fingers postcard group swap. It's made with commercial batik fabrics, oil paint stick and organza. It was a little hard to get a photo as the light is bad and the organza is a bit shiny.

Here's a closeup of the leaf. The theme for the swap is autumn as if you couldn't tell. Usually I don't like to do themed swaps but since this is one of my favorite seasons, I managed.

One part of the trip that I'm very excited about it going to the Quilt Museum in La Conner Washington. Their current show is SiX Stories which includes the following: Bobby Britnell, Laura Kemshall, Linda Kemshall, Edwina MacKinnon, Catherine Nicholls and Marie Roper. I can't wait to see these quilts in person. More when I return...
