After the failed attempt at placemants I decided that I needed to end yesterday on a positive note. This section of the wall was partly done so I knew I only needed to finish the background.
The center tile in this block is from Chris' time in the Navy Department of Legislative Affairs. We were dating for that period of time. He lived in DC and I lived in Virginia Beach. Every time I went to visit him I would get lost. I eventually discovered that I needed glasses. Chris is from this area and he had an absolute blast during this time.
I bought a set of Washington DC ashtrays off Etsy and added those for the monuments. I did the background in pink to symbolize the cherry blossoms. I only have 5 full sections to go and might make a push over the bext 2 weeks to get this wrapped up.
I'm Vicki Welsh and I've been making things as long as I can remember. I used to be a garment maker but transitioned to quilts about 20 years ago. Currently I'm into fabric dyeing, quilting, Zentangle, fabric postcards, fused glass and mosaic. I document my adventures here.
