Saturday, I tookDeborah Boschert's class 'Small Art Quilts: Designing a Series' sponsored by the Denton Quilt Guild. Deborah with class samples
My theme word for the day was 'balance' and this was a great way to start a day of creating.

I decided to challenge myself by working in colors I normally don't use - the dreaded blues and purples. I was so uncomfortable without a red, orange, yellow or green, I finally broke down and added a piece of red and ditched one of the lighter blues. I used a bird as my common image which is another challenge because circles and squares are my comfort zone. So now I have some abstract pieces that I like more today than Saturday. They are not finished but here is a look at where I am now. I worked on the series today, along with a busines card holder the I have pre-sold to a friend.
Oh yeah, did I forget to mention that '24' is back with Jack Bauer and his man bag? There was even a techie duel between Chloe and an FBI techie played by Janeane Garofalo...pretty darn good although I think Chloe can kick anybody's ass. She is awesome on the keyboard, can backdoor into any computer system and has got skills with an automatic weapon. There is even a female president this year. I think '24' is ahead of it's time.
What's really on my mind - Inauguration Day! I am so very excited about tomorrow and what it means to the country. I am hopeful that we will pull together as a nation and begin to dig ourselves out of this mess we are in, knowing it will take time. I have programmed everything in my house to record the events...wonder if I can still find an Obama bobblehead,
