So I started my Week 6 card yesterday morning. (The theme is, naturally, LOVE) Sanded it and covered it in some Cadmium Red that I thought was very striking.
Haha for me, I did not know that oil paints take FOREVER to dry, so when my dh gets home from work he's lecturing me on getting into his paints, (grin) and also that cadmium is poisonus and I've had it all over my fingers all day. I was feeling rather low. But I'm not dead and while I wait STILL for my paint to dry, I thought I'd do some other projects:












Most of the patterns for these blocks can be found on Marcia Hohn's website, which I have a link to here on the blog, to the left - under Quilt Blocks Galore! I'm making a quilt for the little girl that I've been sitting for a few years. She'll be 4 in August - although I'm pretty sure she's not going to wait that long for the finished product. :)

That's so funny about the oil paint. I know you don't like it when I say it, but... you're silly. :) Your quilts are beautiful! I can't believe how quickly you are getting through those. Sheesh.
