Owls on Linen- Two New Wall Quilts

Here's two new wall quilts in my shop space. I thought I'd do something seasonal for a change and the one above has sold! Yay! My first sale! It's about dang time too, I was starting to despair.

This owl has got his eye set on a new home. Tonight is a showing of one of the more well-known artists at the shop, so I hope my booth gets some extra exposure.

The Potter's Hands



I just couldn't make myself do another "this ought to sell" project today. It had to come from the heart and be a true creative work. I've opened my sketchbook to a drawing I did a few months ago in church. "Mold me, use me, fill me, walk beside me, I give my life to the potter's hands..." or something similar goes the song. The sketch I did was pretty rough, so my neighbor consented to being my hand model.
She's a beautiful lady with much love and work in those hands, so I think she's a great fill-in for the true Potter. Now let's see if I can render this into a quilt.
