Quilt Block for New Baby Blanket

The Portland Art Collective started a new project to stimulate member creativity. Each person gives participants supplies and directions for her individual project. Cynthia is having us make blocks for a quilt for her new grand baby. She gave us each a packet of fabric. I enjoyed working with these light, colorful scraps to make this block. We're all helping her to get the whole quilt made by October.

Painted Birdhouse for Portland Art Collective Exchange

For a couple of weeks, I've been painting this birdhouse. It started out as a Joann's find on sale. The leaves and bird on the front are painted, stamped metal 3-D pieces. I hope some bird will find it to be a lovely home.
