Another fabric 4x4 for Patti's swap...I love printing onto fabric...but my printer doesn't always want to cooperate. Had a lovely day yesterday...An and I went out to Wal-mart..ended up getting 3 movies for our collection...I got 2 of my all time favorites "Tombstone" and "Chocolate"...and An got some strange one called "Mortuary"...he likes those second rate B movies! (I always tease him about it).....We munched on left-over pizza from Friday night...I worked in the studio for abit....I'm into the sewing machine right now....also finished the book I was reading...we stopped at the library and I got another book (like I don't already have "stacks" to read)....."The Forest Lover" by Susan Vreeland..She also wrote "Girl in Hyacinth Blue". This book takes us to another time at the turn of the twentieth century on the lush, untamed coast of British Columbria...She begins the story of the legendary painter, naturalist, and icon Emily Carr. Sounds good huh?!!!!
Had 2 nice visits yesterday from my son, and Ty.....and my cousin Maryellen..oh! and from our good friend Charles...all too short...but SWEET!
We are getting ready to run to the store now....we are going to have a HUGE breakfast! ..then I think I'll watch one of the new movies...and play in the studio..maybe even do some more raking outside...looks like another beautiful day!!!!!!

Forest Lover is a terrific book. As an artist, you will particularly enjoy it.

These fabric pieces are so pretty! Now you're inspiring me to get out the sewing machine! Girl, I'm running out of time!!
I love "Chocolat" of my favorite movies. I haven't read Vreeland but you make her sound interesting so I'll see if we have those books at our library.

I love the 4 x 4s you have been doing on the sewing machine. We are back in the frigid zone, high today was only 28 with windchills in the low teens. I sent Pattie my 4 x 4s yesterday. I hope I get one of yours.

I am so happy to see more people getting the fabric out...I LOVE working with fabric. These are gorgeous Vicci, but then everything you do is!
Chocolat...I've watched that movie so many times, I love it. I sure wish they'd come out with Enchanted April in DVD - have you seen that? One of my favorites.

I love Chocolat, but I haven't seen the others yet.

"Chocolat" is one of my very favorite movies. I also liked "Tombstone," but then you aren't surprised, are you? I haven't heard of "Mortuary" though.

It sounds like you had a wonderful weekend. You are always so busy doing FUN stuff!

I love your work in fabric. It's beautiful! Someone is going to be a very lucky recipient!

Oh I have been gone to long.. You have been busy. I love these fabric journals. Wouldn't these be great to write your love notes in!?

umm.. are these journals?

I like left over pizza too. I like it cold and I have just discoverd if you put them in a electric non stick skillet on warm, the bottom of the crust gets crisp and warms the top!
