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.
