Progress Shot

Well here is where I'm at with my project:

Since you last saw this, I've added a little metallic paint, a little turquoise paint and now I'm cutting fabric into shapes.

I know what I'm getting for Christmas! A new furnace! Yippee skippy, right? It looks like the other one is not worth fixing, so we will be having a new one installed, probably on Friday. Friday will be one week that we've gone with no furnace. We have been counting our blessings that the weather has been ranging from daytime temps in the 30s to 40 during this time period. With those temps it is easy to keep our house warm enough with the wood stove. By the time I get up in the mornings, though, it's starting to get a bit chilly. Brrrr!

Oh, and I got some other exciting news today. I found out that my books have been shipped and should arrive on my doorstep by maybe Monday. YAY! So for those of you who have pre-ordered, I'm hoping to have them in the mail to you by mid to late next week, if all goes as planned.


  1. Praise God for wood stoves. That's our only source of heat but it keeps us warm. I'm curious about your latest project. From the photos yesterday I'm guessing you collaged - not machine pieced the backgrounds and then layered it on batting that you pieced and you are now embelling the whole piece cut up with paint and fabric?? I like the results.

  2. No furnace for a week?! You could knit a sweater in that time, or at least sox.

  3. How exciting, a new furnace! Will it come with a red bow?

  4. I hope you manage to get some heat soon brrr!

    What exciting news about your book!

  5. This project looks VERY interesting!
    A furnace wouldn't be my first choice for a gift, but... can't survive without them, can we?
    Can't wait for my copy of the book!! :~)

  6. Hope you get your furnace installed soon!!!

  7. Congrats on the book arrival !!! How totally exciting. My niece, the author...has a nice ring to it!

    Big Hugs.

  8. I'm glad to hear the furnace will be installed soon and very excited to hear about the book!

  9. Love how these pieces are looking. I need to do some collages that relate and this is a great idea to get them all done at once.

    Glad warmth is on the way.


I enjoy getting your comments. Thanks so much for leaving one.
