Thank you very much, dear Pirate, for your kind words. 

I am trying to set a good example for all of you to show you what you can do if and when you wear out your shoulders, arms and fingers with hand needlework, quilting and other such skills that require the fine motor coordination of youth. If you live long enough you might find you need a hobby that allows you to "get by" with child's play which is what I am doing with this clay stuff these days.

There are fine artists who use polymer clay .... I am not one of them. There are sculptors are there who use polymer clay that dazzle the eye and make jaw-dropping works of art.  I am not one of them.

But I surely do have a good time with what I am doing with this stuff and my shoulder and arm are not complaining at all. LOL

Here's the posey stuck on a former garden stake and in a pot of squirrel-battered wax begonias. I think it is happy to be outdoors and looking sunward.

*those* are exactly the kind of flowers I need in my garden.  The kind that you can't kill.  :-)

I like your flower. Mine die for lack of water or the dog eats the blossoms. I'm not much of a gardener. I'll be looking for more of your creations.

Our summer heat has arrived. It was 97 here today so I stayed in my sewing room and sewed the binding on the front of the quilt. It's a long way around and slow going because of the curves. I usually machine stitch the front and back, but I'll hand stitch this one because it's so special.

I really admire you guys who can do fiber art stuff. It's cool! :) Good job!

Both reverse applique I have done and enjoyed were with batik.  Regular quilting cotton would not be as much fun
