Off topic Ego stroke
At the risk of seeming (more) self-centered, I uploaded some pictures of some of my original designs in  quilting, needlepoint and knitting.  I didn't realize how easiy it was....I'm such a techno-tard!

Hope you enjoy.

BTW - Michael - what are your kids' ages?  Great art!

Now I have to go through and look at what everyone has posted!  What a great feature!!

Wingnut - it's easy.  Go to your profile and "edit".  Choose "Photos", click on browse to find the pictures on your computer.  Double click to upload and voila!

Awesome work!  How long does the average quilt take, say, for instance the award winning one?  My favorite is the first one.

Up until last year  I made leather items like leather bracelets, chokers and purses, stamping (embossing) them and painting them. I don't have the patience  any more but sold a lot of stuff when I did.

I'd love to see other people's work.   Way to go.Quix, and thank you for sharing.

Hi, there!  When I was working foulltime ....uhhh fulltime, I quilted in the evenings and on the weekends.  I machine pieced and free-hand machine quilted.  No patience for the beautiful handwork.  An average quilt would take a couple months.  Now, that I don't quilt at all, an average quilt appears to take forever.

The first one is your favorite - the first quilt or the first picture.  If it is the needlepoint, I did that one and designed it on the fly starting in the center.   I had just been disabled by vertigo and was pretty much bedridden. It is the best piece of handwork I ever did.  I gave it away and now only have the picture.  Maybe I'll do it again.

Hi Quix,

Just felt compelled to touch bases. My mom also designs quilts between her 9-5 job. She has a company that's starting to take off and loves quilting.

I have to put in my vote as the octagonal (I think it's 8 sides, I didn't count though) peace sign. I love the colours, and the design and think it's completely lovely!

And no, I don't quilt...don't sew, and barely cook! LOL

The first picture which is not a quilt was my favorite.  I do love all of them, though. Marcie

beautiful work.  I too love to quilt and do other handiwork - refinish furniture, turn trash in to treasure, etc...

Thanks for sharing - since my dx I keep feeling like my ability to do this kind of work is limited - nice to see other still enjoy it.
