Eygpt's Sunken Cities

Amaliya and I in front of two of the huge statues that were found under the sea.  It is believed about about 10 % of the treasure has been found.

 I had the opportunity to view these amazing ancient pieces in December for my birthday treat, and then come back again in March with Amaliya and Bob.  The mystery and all the stories that surround all of these pieces of beauty is phenomenal.

Amaliya's Quilt

My daughter had her 35th birthday on Friday.  Wow, amazing and wonderful and I can't believe that time goes by so quickly.

She's been asking for a quilt, gentle suggestions or requests since she turned 30 year.  I thought this was the time to get one created for her. Its made up of colors and designs that I thought she would like and appreciate and ones that I chose for color and softness.

The size is 52" x 66".  It is called "Fly and Soar."  It is made with all cotton fabrics that I stitched together and machine quilted the three layers together.  I finished it on 3/23/2018.  She'll receive this gift of love on Sunday.

Here are the top and bottom of the quilt before it was quilted with the batting in the middle:

My studio space is rather small.  To the left off this picture is my sewing machine and to the right is the ironing board.  The lay out table has two arms to make it larger or smaller depending on need for size.  When the table is full size, I have to squeeze around the table.  My sewing machine table also has an extension table to allow for quilting larger pieces.

Some pins to hold pieces in alignment.

Sewing the tiny berries in the middle section.  I call this machine drawing.

Back of the quilt with the quilting creating a design.

 The hand embroidery was on an old dress of mine that I up-cycled for this quilt.

Lots of good work and love in creating this quilt.

I love you, Amaliya Rose.

Amaliya is Born

You must use your imagination! A picture can say a thousand words; and an idea can create a world.  

On March 23, 1983, at 7:10am, a beautiful baby girl was born.  She had the longest fingers and a firm strong head in perfect form--a strength that would serve her well through her whole life.  

Amaliya Rose Eischen was born in the Sufi House located at 812 Jenifer Street in Madison, Wisconsin to the parents of Mary Lee Eischen and William Quentin Humphrey.  
It was a glorious day to be born!            

Happy Birthday, dear daughter, dear Amaliya!
