Jan and Barbara are TWO art quilters living in the middle of a very traditional Ozark area. Some folks think we are TOO wild but we have a lot of fun. We decided we needed a place to PLAY and EXPERIMENT and just share ideas. Come see what we are doing lately - and join the conversation!

Arnold Is Fine
After much fretting I decided that Arnold needed to stand in a puddle of water. So I added the puddle lines with stitching - and it looked sort of stupid because the puddle and the background were the same color. So I painted the water a different color and then added a boundary line at the edge of the water with several lines of stitching. I think that part works now.
But then I looked at his hand. It needed something. So red beads to match the border were the answer. In my world Arnold is making a Wish and dropping Magic Red Jewels into the Enchanted Wishing Pond! I wonder what he is wishing? Barbara
