Totally Random Coincidence

I just took a survey about beer. Remembered my dad drove a Shlitz truck for awhile. Wrote down Shiltz as a brand I knew. Finished Survey. Opened next email. Saw this picture in an Etsy advertisement.

Here's the link to the painting if you are interested... http://www.etsy.com/listing/58340826/schlitz-beer-painting?utm_source=bronto&utm_medium=email&utm_term=Image+-+http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php%3Flisting_id%3D58340826&utm_content=etsy_finds_113010_b&utm_campaign=etsy_finds_113010_b

2012 Crazy Quilt Challenge- The Beginning

My Yahoo crazy quilt group is doing a CQ by 2012 challenge. I need to get mine done by July 2011 so it can be in my quilt guild's quilt show at the World Arena here in Colorado Springs. at first I thought about doing burgundy/green/gold but then I decided on the teal/aqua/turquoise/gold blocks I had tried to sell earlier this year. I got some brown satin for the border so some of my embellishments will be brown. I am going to try to tone down the gold a little too. Should be spectacular if I don't say so myself.

 When I was downtown Tuesday I went to Holly Berry and bought some silk thread and some other stuff....$12.17 or so...odd because I already had a massive pile of threads and ribbons lol! I just can't stop adding to it can I?

So far I have about 5 hours in piecing the blocks and 1 hour in gathering beads and trims. I will try to keep track of embellishing hours by watching tv and working during certain shows. Sound like a plan...now I just need some bad weather to keep me home and in front of the TV.

Pretty baby 363/365

I don't know if I used this one already but even if I did it's so cute it deserves a replay!

I'm trying to decide what to do for my next 365 challenge. Art everyday? Quilts? Knitting? What? Help!
