design wall overload

just how many projects can you fit on your design wall before it is overloaded. it seems for me that is about 4-5 projects.

first off is my martian flowers quilt. 

you can see the first finished blocks at the top of the design wall, the lower left is a photo of my daughter and her horse during winter break from university about 12 years ago. i love that photo.
the middle far right is photos of my granddaughter and some art work by her and my grandson. so my design wall also functions  as an art gallery

next project
 these are my blocks for a BOM at one of the local guilds. they will be moving off the wall this week.
next project
 a design i am working on

 next project
part of block i am working on for BOM

so that totals 4 projects and that is overload.

Martian flowers

have you ever wondering what flowers on mars would look like if they grew there? 
i like to believe if flowers do grow on mars they are brightly coloured and very exotic…perhaps purples and yellows mixed together with some acid greens…maybe some aqua and burgundy with blue…the possibilities are endless…just thinking gets my creative juices flowing…oh-la-la!!!!!!!!!!!! i did spend some time last week just cutting out shapes with my scissors…mixing them together to see what shapes please me when i think about creating exotic flowers
curving paisleys, circles, squares, triangles, circles within circles…an endless range of options for creating flower images…
any ideas people…come on let your imagination run wild as the saying goes
