It's my turn to do the Pulpit Table at church for January and February.

Aren't these neat old fabrics!  Got 27 blocks at a Antique Mall on a recent trip.

They called out for yellow don't you think?  So that's what I'm doing now. It will be a small quilt and so cute draped over the corner of a book case in my studio when finished. Can't wait!

Background for a "Fish" picture I am painting. See some the fish outlined in white?  I'm looking forward to getting back at it!  With a sick husband and taking care of a 2  1/2 yr. old great grandson I don't get things done as fast as I use too! I invite you to visit my 2nd blog too at

Wanted a new look so decided I would make a panel to hand stitch over the original one. This way I can have both!

Gathered different black and white and grey materials from my stash, even found some multicolored yarn in the right colors.

This is what I covered!  As you can see it's neat too, so wanted to be able to use it this way again also! Was an easy and fun project!

 One of my very Favorite Author/Illustrators Tomie dePaola surprised me with a response to a letter I wrote to him 2 yrs. ago I enjoy rereading his book "Christmas Remembered" every Christmas season. I also have several of his children's books  in my collection.

 I've been wanting to make a Marlynne Folk Art Angel for my Studio Wall so got it done this past week. Of course she had to be dressed in red with polka dots! I have some others cut out to make for the shops too!

I enjoy my hanging pennants so much I decided to make some for the shops and maybe bag up a few sets for sale.

Fun fabric half circles ready to string with Twisted Jude Twine. I'd like to invite you to visit my other blog; and Marlynne Snare Folk Artist on Facebook. Wishing you a Happy and Safe 2014!
