I picked a few of the newly planted daffodils that are now on Lucy's grave and painted a little etegami....

I have a vintage stereo set-up in my studio with my Zune that has my selection of just good music (1000's of songs), everything from Beethoven to Led Zepplin.  I just set it to play randomly.

While I was painting this, it randomly selected "Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds".

After I decided I was finished with the Valentine's Day bouquet painting, I separated all the flowers and made a much smaller arrangement, and put them in water since they were starting to droop.

I couldn't resist doing an etegami of the daisies.

"Sunny Smile"


Here's this years Valentine's Day bouquet.  

Can't say I'm in much of a good mood, but I figured I'd soldier on and get it done...

I don't really like it, it looks amateurish.

But I'm done.

Hopefully, next year's will be better.

We have been very priveleged to have had Lucy in our lives these last few years.  She came to live with us in November of 2008.   She left us today. 

  We will miss her terribly...

Our wish is that her next life be a happy one, one she deserves. 

She was a great dog.

Sewed the rows all together today.  It's officially a finished quilt top.

It's too big for my design wall, so it's draping down onto the floor and getting officially covered with sawdust.  [Sawdust wafts up to my studio from my husband's woodshop below.]
It is 7 blocks by 7 blocks, the blocks are 14" square - that makes it 98" square.

What was I thinking?  It's going to be a bear to quilt.
