Guess where we are going? Guess who we will be seeing and hearing? I am so excited. This is an early birthday gift from DH (my birthday is on Thanksgiving this year).
When I got my HQ I found that I enjoyed quilting best when I was listening to jazz so I started buying Kenny G albums. He, along with others, has gotten me through a lot of quilts.
These are the fruits of my labor for the beginning of the week.
This is one of the smaller owls. The pattern calls for a pieced border around but I am thinking that I will use a sashing fabric for each of the blocks.
And this is my most recent fish. I have tried to use this green fabric a couple of times but this was the first time this fabric fit a fish.
I also spent this afternoon picking out fabrics for Bonnie Hunter’s new mystery that is starting the day after my birthday. The colors she has picked out are the ones I used for last year’s mystery so I had to put my thinking cap on and come up with my own combination. I have pulled yellow, moss green, blue, and rust, for now. I am not really sure of this as I would really like to use purple, I think. I really don’t like mysteries because I like to know what I am doing. But my Easy Street from last year turned out so great that I am willing to give Celtic Solstice a try.
Now, I think I will spend some time cleaning the studio so I don’t loose all those little pieces Bonnie is going to have me/us cut. I had baggies all over the place last year so I figure it will be the same this time. And without some clean surfaces I will loose those little parts and just have a mess. So I have 23 days to get my space ready…..better get at it.
