The Earth, A Cottage, Some Cream, and ATC's

Wow, how's that for a post title?!

First I want to mention that Earth Hour is coming up on Saturday night. Wherever you are in the world, please consider not using hydro between 8:30 and 9:30 pm. Turn out your lights, turn off the tv and just take the hour to appreciate what we have, and help out the cause. Go to http://www.earthhour.org/about/ for more information.

Allison Aller has just completed her latest crazy quilt project - a landscape. Please go and have a look because it is absolutely spectacular. Be sure to embiggen her photo of the completed project so you can see all the details! Be prepared to be impressed. http://alliesinstitches.blogspot.com

The first picture here is of the atcs we traded at our meeting yesterday. Our 'theme' was denim, so the top three cards shown use it in some form. Irene's is on the left, mine in the middle, and Sue's on the right. The bottom row is some extras we did, just for fun. Sue did the St. Patricks one in the middle and the other two are my efforts to celebrate spring. This photo shows the jar of rich body cream that Irene made for each of us. It feels SO good and mine smells yummy too. It's nice to know the ingredients we're putting onto our bodies and this has good stuff! Yum.

And I see Martha Brown's Zodiac in the background. Did you know that I saw that huge piece in progress? I can't imagine working on an art piece that large.
