the challenge word is RHYTHM.  rhythm to me is hearing the beat to music. music is the rhythm.   if you don't hear the beat there is no rhythm and there is no music. i love to just close my eyes and listen to the sound of music. whether the rhythm is coming from a horn, drum, piano, a heart beat, a clock, everything has  a rhythm.. the rhythm is here if you just listen.

catch up time

i have been so busy for the last couple of weeks.  i have been making portrait quilts for our family reunion, that was just this weekend. i had a great time and everyone that got a portrait loved it.  i think i made about 4 or 5 of them.  i am one of the historian in the family so i was working hard in getting information on the family tree and find pictures of family members, so i used some of those pictures to make the portrait quilts. i also had a demand of making portrait of father's for father's day.  the reunion was in charlotte north carolina.  before i left to go to the reunion a friend told me i she try to stop and go to MARY JO'S FABRIC SHOP while i was in charlotte.  well lady's i did and i went crazy. it look like a big old warehouse full of fabric.  i spent money that i should have been using for something else.  the fabric shop is in gaston(?) north carolina not to far from charlotte north carolina. i am going to try to get back down there by the end of the year.  i brought fabric to make more portraits.

i was going to post pictures of the portraits that i made and some how the pictures are deleted, also some of the family reunion pictures.  i don't know what i did, but they are gone.  the two pictures that i am showing is my little niece and a portrait of me. those are the only two that got downloaded.  the other portrait is also me.  that was the very first portrait that i made when i started doing portraits.  i have always hated my first self portrait of myself.  i like the pink one better. if i can find the picture on my laptop i will post them when i can. 

 so stitches for now.
