Greetings! My life has been crazy busy the past week so this is going to be a quick blog update. No time to ramble or ruminate this post.
This week the “Stars in A Time Warp” quilt along gave us 2 different stars to create. One was to feature a chocolate shade of brown with a light background that has blue-ish tinge to it. I studied the stars in the blog post and had a hard time seeing the blue-ish color in most of the examples. I didn’t really find anything perfect, but I think this star is close (click for enlargements):
The second star for this week features a lacy pattern in the fabric and I found a perfect example!
I’ve been quilting Stella Nova in the Baptist Fan quilting design and making good progress. Here’s the front:
And here’s the back (much better color accuracy than in the last post):
And I have made good progress on block#6 of Sweet Journeys:
If you haven’t looked at the Gallery in my web site for a while, some new quilts have been added and all my doll quilts (12) have been added to the site so take a look around when you get a chance!
Finally, one of the reasons I’ve been so busy is that both grandkids just had birthdays! Dmitri turned 11 on Saturday and Sveta turned 8 today. We spent time with them this weekend celebrating. For family friends here are a couple of pictures:
Dmitri has just started to play the sax and loves it!! He’s still playing viola as well. The kids’ friend Abigail (on the far left) has their Bearded Dragon, Mr. Basil, sitting on her chest in the third picture!
Be grateful and cherish every day!! Parker Palmer writes a weekly piece every Wednesday for the “On Being” web site and last Wednesday’s piece on autumn was particularly good. Check it out at onbeing.org. Gladi
