T T: Huge Success

Yesterday my "Celebrate Lupines in Winter" went for the gold price of $120.00!!!!!!!!!  I am on cloud nine! 

Fiber Art for a Cause - Tote Tuesday - raised $4157 yesterday for a total of $5675 for the American Cancer Society. And there are two ToteTuesdays to go on February 16 and 23rd.

Check Virginia's site for a mini-preview of the unique, inspiring and beautiful totes donated by generous sponsors/donors yet to be put up for bid:

I was prompted by Robin Koehler's postings to try some new approaches in my quilting.

Old worn out quilt I made in the early 80's.  Couldn't bear to throw it out, it has been much loved and much used.  So...
Using a brayer and some Lumiere paint, I made it new again!  It has an almost maplike quality, don't you think?  Now what?  I have a few ideas and will post results as soon as I have something.


  1. Hi Marti, I have a tutorial on my blog and Linda Matthews' blog using an old quilt and unusual materials. You might get some ideas from it., look under the Tutorial section and click on Using Unusual Materials

  2. It is looking good so far!

  3. Yes, it appears that we are looking through the clouds down at the ground. Nice. The lupine picture is wonderful. Wow. Nice job.

  4. Really lovely! Great job and congratulations at raising so much! As a 2 and possibly 3 x BC survivor and give you my thanks from the bottom of my bones... :)

  5. Hi Marti,
    Thank you for being inspired by something I wrote. The Lupines are fantastic and congratulations on the sale!!
