Happy Thanksgiving to all!!

We are headed to my sisters for dinner today, which will be fun.  My nephew, his wife and three children should be there and we have not seen them for several years.  Time does seem to be getting away from us.
Life has been good, Bud worked for a guy during harvest, enjoying his time just driving a tractor.
I have been taking a class from Marilyn Belford on Quilt University, Realistic Fabric Portrait Quilts.  I have done art quilts before, but this class has been quite a challenge, but it is coming together quite nicely now.  I had to learn that I do things a bit different from others, so no big deal.  Here is a photo of my model, will post the finished quilt when it is finally done!
This is a painting a friend of mine did from a photo she was allowed to use that had been taken by her college professor.  Long story short, the photo was taken in the early 80's, she painted "Rosita" in 83-84.  I was able to find the photographer/professor, what a delightful man to visit with.  He gave his okay, so "Rosita" will be a quilt soon, I pray.
