i am back

well, i am back, new glasses, i have lost 26 1/2 pounds in 16 weeks.  for some reason my body does not want me to loose no more than 24 pounds for some reason.  but i finally got pass that 24 pound weight lose.  my health is doing good.  weight watcher is not that bad, i like it.  i am now on one medication and i truly believe that all that medication was making my vision go crazy.  so my quilting friends, i am backing to quilting.  i am doing a traditional quilt challenge and that crap is driving me crazy.  i do not know if it will be completed by June 16th.  wish me luck.  to all of you who do and love traditional quilting, i love you but that is not for me. i said that before i truly know that is not for me.  i am going back to my art quilting and portrait quilting. in traditional quilting, i can not getting those corner to match to save my life.  once i got the hang of it and decide to look at what i did the stupid block pieces were not matched up. they were going all kinds of ways.  so right now that is thrown into the corner until i can get myself to take the stupid pieces a loose and start all over.  right now i am working on a well know singer, who i will not tell you who she is until i finish.  right now i am having some real problems with her hair.  i am thinking about just making her hair black and forget about the highlights in her hair.
here are a few pictures of what i have done so far. 





once i get the hair right, i will show and tell you who she is if you have not guess yet.
if any body has a nice picture of Chuck Brown can you send it to me.  i might try him next.

stitches,

Hey Sistah, have prayed for you when you last posted about all that you were going through. I'm so glad to see you back on the scene and I fee you when you say traditional quilting is not for you. I do some for charity and gifts, but my thing is art quilts also. Here's wishing you the best.

You have done a great job with Whitney's face. It's going to be beautiful when it's done

It is far better to answer to what is calling out to you. The portrait is lovely so far. Do you work with one particular photograph or several?
Nice to see you back!

Your finished Whitney is fabulous...Sorry to hear about your eye problems. It would be really lousy if you cannot have your eyesight corrected. So much of art is routed in what we see!

sending you good vibes and prayers
