If you are a "non-responder or OpenID-er" which to me means I have no way of responding to a comment that you've left, please leave a way for me to get in touch with you, especially if you're participating in a blog give-away or if you are asking for information or links.
By leaving your email within your comment, I can find you. I realize that this is sometimes a scary thing to do with scams and all but if you disguise the email as say.....
me at yahoo dot com
this is the perfect way to hide from the unwanted eye. So please help me out if you are one of the non-responders.
Thank you, in advance.....Ravelly Rhonda!!

Branching Out


I've been thinking and reading and thinking about what I wanted to get into to keep my mind "sharp".....LOL
One night I stumbled unto this BLOG and was astounded and delighted at what I saw.
Virginia Greaves' blog caught my attention and I couldn't get enough of her unique spin on quilting.  She takes portraits of people, animals and just about anything you could think of and turns them into "ART."
After reading and bookmarking her blog, I have plunged in with both feet.
I'm working on my #1 Little Princess, Ayden for starters.
Using Virginia's techniques for choosing fabric, I've come up with the above so far. Of course, it will need several more pieces and placement of fabrics but I'm really happy with it so far.

I've always been in awe of people who create portrait quilts. You go, girl!

That is going to be just wonderful Rhonda. Your eagles and animals were just practice for your faces. Do you suppose we'll get to see the whole family?! I'm anxious for your next post.

Beautiful job Rhonda! I've come to the conclusion that there's nothing you will not try. Gosh, I wish my schedule wasn't so hectic right now...

Midas touch, Rhonda. Midas touch.

So cool! Such a neat idea-and how neat would it be to have your face on a quilt : )

I'm sure your project will turn out great!

Don't count the days, make the days count!
