Closet of Shame reveals more.....

Hey! Spell-check's back but you still can't format the writing where you want it to appear.
Well, the gloomy weather goes on but at least there's no snow to go with it. I swear, just under those grey clouds is a spring day waiting to burst forth. It's very warm outside(for NY in Feb) and I worked up a real sweat just walking this morning.
After my walk, I went to the Pantry to pick up the latest mail that was waiting for me and there was plenty since I have been illin' the last ten days or so. It's good to see so many people don't forget families in need at this time of year.
Here are two pieces I did very early on in my quilting life. The fans are hand appliqued (and badly) and very poofy and with the wrong thread color etc. Still, I can't seem to get rid of it. I am going to slap a binding on it and hang it up to keep me humble and boy is it ever! The other one, the flying geese was done before I had a 1/4 inch foot and got serious about how to quilt things. it only requires a couple of lines of quilting down the central beige portions to keep it from pooching when you hang it. The geese are made from pretty fabric squares I got a really long time ago. The beige is a fabric I wish I had bought yards of. It's so pretty and I think I only have a very small half yard left. So pretty.
Well, I'm off to try and figure out what to serve the guys for dinner.
Thanks for stopping by to visit. Tomorrow I will show you some pictures of some beautiful cards I got from a photographer friend who is way, way, talented. I couldn't get them loaded today. She's a genius with a camera and, clearly, I am not. Tune in tomorrow for more "As the Dee Turns"

Those are wonderful quilts. I am so glad you are feeling better and up and doing your walking. I noticed on my way to work this a.m. (7:00) the sun was up and shining!!!! I wasn't driving to work in the dark! Yeahhhhh! Spring is just around the corner. Wishing you sunshine and warmth!

I think all 3 of these quilts are lovely. I can get overly critical about my work too but sometimes you have to step back and look at the quilt's impact not just nit pick at the workmanship!

I like these quilts. I'm glad you're feeling better. I'm still fighting the cough that came with the crud...it's been three weeks now. Ugh.

Oh your fans are just lovely...and I have a number of quilts with pointless triangles to match your geese quilt! Definitely makes a girl (or boy for that matter!) feel better about her flubs though...it's nice to know in the beginning, we all have an "oops" or two. :)
