Blogging vs Facebook/ Quilting vs Drawing....

So it has been awhile! I have not been blogging lately, mostly because I have not been quilting lately. After Forest City Comicon, I was drained of all my energy and creativity. Then winter, then Christmas, unorganized and messy sewing room, there was always an excuse to not quilt. So then I got hooked on drawing selfies, which exercised my creativity. I was reading Lynda Barry's Syllabus, Lynda Barry, a professor at the University of Wisconsin-Madison instructs her students to create a 2 minute drawing of themselves every class as their mark for attendance. For some reason I am a sucker for challenges and I thought I should try that every day, draw a "selfie" and post it on my Facebook page. I have over 80 of them now. I am kind of addicted to them. Here are my quilting related ones

 I am still making these selfies, but have got back into sewing groove....

 You can see below I did a clean up of my sewing room

And finally finished the top for my parents' 50th anniversary quilt, I have sent it to Cathy to do the machine quilting

I have just finished piecing my Jacquie Gering workshop quilt, horizontal

or vertical:

right now I am trending on vertical....I will let it hang on the design wall for a little while to see what I like and play with some fabric for borders....but right now, I am thinking vertical wall hanging no borders.
