Centerpiece for our Kitchen "club"

I couldn't wait to get out my little birds and spring things. We had our "Rotating Kitchen"club at my house this week. I even got my dining room table cleared off! Who knows if I'll be able to find the stuff I moved.

My Quilt

I had to wait to pick up my daughter at Midway and visited the quilt class. I want to bring my quilt to show Denise, plus bring another quilt I bought long ago to get some input on the age of the fabric. I made this in Iowa, a sew in a day (took me two days) Log Cabin that was made using strips of fabric. It's all hand quilted except I'm not quite finished with the blue edge. When we moved here I didn't know many people, so I guess I must have done most of the work then.

ATC cards for an exchange

I realized I also posted this on my penandpaintsartwork blog, oh well...

Trout Lilys at the Center

Calligraphy show at ILL Benedictine University

I tried to cut and paste, but no luck! Guess that's not possible on the blog.
So the show is at Illinois Benedictine Univ -works of the lettering students there and included is the work of our "Study Group" that meets there. We dropped off work today and I noticed even Tim Botts has some pieces in the show!! He also has a phenomenal show at Wheaton College- at the Billy Graham Center!!!
The show runs from May 2-31 with the reception tomorrow, May 2 from 1-4, for any of you who are interested. The work has illustration too and what we saw today is well worth seeing!!

I also dropped off work at the Vogt Art Center in Tinley Park as they are having an art show with the Town and Country Art League. The show dates are May 4th - 28th with the reception next Friday, the 7th from 7-9:00. There will be quite a variety of artwork there. Address:
