Call Me Narcissus

Have you ever fallen in love with a photo of yourself?

I did, yesterday. We had a class project that involved creating a pop-art version of yourself, and this is how mine turned out.

And it's like, man! Look at those cheekbones! I think it makes me look like Cher.

Now, I don't really have a long lean face with killer cheekbones or a super pouty mouth.

I'm kicking myself for not grabbing the original photo, but I was making a face like this:

Which, is not quite as attractive, but oh the magic of photoshop! It almost makes me want to get cheek implants. Almost.

I've been trucking along on quilting my scrap quilt. I've got one more section, and then maybe some stitching in the ditch if I feel like it. I'm not great at it, but I do like the look of it.

I'm not sure if this qualifies as "modern" quilting or not. I'm not to worried about labels, but as I am a member of a modern quilt guild, so it is something I think about. Sometimes I think I've come up with something really modern, and other times not so much. This type of quilting seems a little fussy for modern quilting, but I like the look of it.

I guess I won't really know if this qualifies as modern or not for about 20 years or so, when we can look back on this period of quilting and see what the trends really were.

Every post of yours cracks me up. I really love the quilting you're doing. Those lazy eights (or whatever they're called) are extra juicy.
