New Orleans Series Continues

New Orleans: Homecoming III 16 x 16"
For sale on Etsy.

After taking a break and making loads of little birds quilts, I have returned to the New Orleans post-Katrina series. Seems there are a few more in me. The one above is number 11. Number 12, in progress, is shown below.

I'm sure there's more tweaking to be done. I could be doing some tweaking right now, but since I had yet another nosebleed this morning, I'm a bit reluctant to lean over this thing and quilt it today. However, I'm not going to get much of a chance to get into the studio over the next week or so. This weekend, we have company. Next week, there is no summer camp, so I will be the entertainment committee. I guess I'll be having a forced vacation. A vacation where I will be able to do little as I apparently can't do a whole lot of bending and lifting, according to that nose doctor. I guess yesterday's five hours of rigorous housecleaning and caffeine may have brought on the nosebleed recurrance.

Oh well, I'll do my best to enjoy it. My daughter and I will cruise the library and have "ladies lunches" together. Of course, there will be plenty of time for blog surfing. And perhaps I can spend some time figuring out how to add photos in blogger. Way frustrating. I had to delete my entire post earlier because I could not get any of the photos in order. For my second attempt, I added all photos in reverse order, then did my typing. What do the rest of you bloggers do?

The sight of your work always puts me in high spirits, Kim. I hope your nose bleeds clear up quickly so you can continue with your series. I'm sure your doctor went into it but I have heard one of the causes can be high blood pressure.

I don't have any trouble at all with the photos. It's a matter of right click on the photo, hold and drag. Practice and see if it works for you.

Your work is wonderful as always! So sorry to hear about your nose bleed. Take care of yourself and enjoy your time with your daughter.

I can't ever get the photos to load in the order I want either. So I let them load however they want and then cut and paste them into the order I want.

A bit fiddly but it works.

What a gorgeous piece of work, I love your colour combinations

The new pieces are looking wonderful! Please don't bleed all over them (though that might add some sad and grim realism to the Katrina pieces). Hope you enjoyed your girl's day out.

I love the little white houses sprinkled here and there.
