Image Journal #5

Much gratitude for all the birthday wishes. Taking a good birthday selfie is harder than it looks. I am glad to be celebrating 48 years.

  2. Absolutely inspired garment starts Maria… cannot wait to see where you go with the pieces you have planned. Sorry to have missed your 48th – enjoy the ride. And how about “Flower Power” – coming from an old hippie (I was 16ish in the late 60’s) and that was our theme! Your quilt is certainly full of vibes and lots of powerful colour!

    • Thank you Bethany! Flower Power was the original name of that quilt, but I’ve been searching for something a bit jazzier. Still, sometimes the first thought is the best thought.
