…..thanks to Becky B for hosting this fun challenge
I’m combining my collage challenge (week 10) and 365 Days of Art (Day 62) with my last March square. This collage technique is called décollage and it involves layering paper and then tearing away the top layer to reveal what’s underneath.
….but just being able to admire all the beautiful work made me a winner
What am I talking about? Well a week ago I went to Neilson Park Creative Centre in Etobicoke (close to where I live) to take in the annual quilting show. At one end of the hall there was a table of prizes consisting of quilted items that had been donated by the members of the quilters’ guild. I purchased 10 tickets and chose where I wanted my tickets to go. Seeing that I haven’t received a phone call I can only assume that none of my tickets were pulled. Oh well, it doesn’t matter because I went there to see the beautiful hand and machine quilted blankets, coverlets, table runners and wall hangings. Here are a few selections that I managed to photograph.

Only one more day of March Squares. I’ve loved this challenge and don’t know what I’ll do in April. Maybe more art projects? Every day when I wake up I’m greeted with this lovely piece of art that was made by one of my grade three students and gifted to me on my retirement. Thank you Alex.
….I know I’m a bit late on this one but today seemed a good day to post photos from last week
Thanks to Cee for hosting the Which Way Photo Challenge. It’s been dreary and wet all day today and what a better time to post my sunny photos from last week when my husband, daughter and I took Olive for a walk to High Park. We walked along Bloor Street, past fruit markets, through tunnels and down a descending sidewalk towards the park entrance.
Once in the park we headed towards the off leash area where we could let Olive run free. She loved it. I love the off leash area in High Park because it is made up of fenced in trails and if you’re a walker it’s a great way to get in some steps and fresh air.
It was a great day. On the way back we walked down hill, then up hill, back through the tunnel and then we took a short cut up a flight of stairs which took us up the the rail path. All in all I clocked over 15 000 steps that day.
I’ve started trying to create my own Seuss-like characters and started with trying to create a little girl around my granddaughter’s age. My husband thinks our granddaughter is too photogenic to be made into a cartoon figure. I have an idea of creating a scene where the little girl is holding a gigantic Easter egg while a giant rabbit looks down on her. Here are the first three sketches of the little girl.
