in the blizzard of 2010

in the dc area we have been snowed in for 4 day and they are talking about more snow tomorrow. so i have been making faces, louis armstrong, billie holiday, etta james and nat king cole. i am trying to make a series of jazz and blues personalities. i am running out of fusible web so i guess i have to find something else to do while i am snowed in. i never thought that i would get tire of looking at tv, but i am. i might try and see how this will work out if i try to use fabric glue. wish me luck. i love louis armstrong and nat king cole, but i don't like the look of etta's face on the left side and i should have used a older picture of billie, because if it wasn't for the flower i don't know if anyone would know who she was. i think i do men portrait better than the woman portrait. i just need to take it a little slower for now on when i am making these.
i have been working on other things before the snow. my quilt challenge piece is finished, the challenge word is PUZZLE, sorry i can not show it until the end of the month. this month is heart disease month and i made a quilt for my job to hang up in the office. they did a little something in the office friday for heart disease month and i was not their because i had to go to the doctor because, guess what i am having problems with my heart. enough said about that. and i was asked to teach the portrait technique and i am trying to figure out how i can teach this. it's easy but students would need a computer and a printer. i am going to figure out how to teach this.

Will you teach it on line?

I pray your heart issue is easily mended. And you will be fine.

Your art is all quite wonderful.

lynn, i don't think i have the right to teach this online because the person that made the dvd on how to make these face also read my blog and i donot want to be sued. on one of my past post i did give the name of the dvd. i go for more test on friday, thanks for your prayers.
