Winged Hearts

Okay, I finally got the design done for the winged hearts swap and my first one done. Did you ever have a situation where you just couldn't get motivated? I mean, I had the design in my mind (although it *did* go through some changes), pieces cut, etc. and just couldn't get my rear in gear to finish it up? I mean -- I like winged hearts enough to wear one forever on my shoulder, but I just couldn't get moving to finish up this swap stuff...Oh well, the rest should be done soon. I just have to finish up cutting some kits for ebay.

See you soon with a fun description of Tart and my trip to the aquarium.

A Question of Copyright

Hi all -- I'm posting again. I've just written to see if I can get permission to use my back tattoo as the inspiration for a quilt block. It's an interesting question and I've spent the past couple of hours reading about copyright of tattoos on the web. A lot of food for thought. Here's a photo of it, as an FYI -- since unless I'm wearing a "wife-beater" t-shirt, you'll never see it! Unfortunately, the shading color kind of photographed funny -- it's not purple at all, more of a darker red. The quilt block I'm thinking of would eliminate the halo and a lot of the shading, etc., but I'd like a similar shape with the same type of "sharp" wings/feathers.

Flipping Mad

I am so flipping mad I just had to share -- I belong to an on-line group that is, for the most part, very nice. NO politics and no religion. Sounds perfect -- like I don't have to worry about the inevitable witch questions or people trying to convert me.

There was a post, though, concerning immigrants. Those of you who know me, know how I feel about it. Hot button is an understatement. I kept my mouth shut for post #1, #2 and now there is #3. I'm about ready to start the rant about this country being built on the backs of immigrants, both documented and undocumented as well as the facts that our founding fathers who landed on Plymouth Rock were certainly not invited by the natives who already lived here.

I think I'm going to explode...
