Good (make that) Great Mail Day

Monday, November 26th, 2007

When we arrived home from the beach, I found a card from the PO, saying that I had a package to pick up. I couldn’t wait until this morning to drive over to retrieve it. This was inside:


It is Village Series #2, made by one of my favorite art quilters, Kristin La Flamme. She started it last year at Art Quilt Tahoe, in a class with Gerry Chase. I kept dropping by the room and calling it my quilt. I really loved the mix of fabrics and the variety of surface design techniques. It is whimsical with a gracious nod to traditional quilting. Yet, it is very abstract and almost ethereal. What can I say, I love it. So I did a payment plan and now, it is all mine!!

Here are a couple of closeups:



I have to do some rearranging of art on our walls so that this will have a place of honor. I’ll post a picture in its new location.

Now, after several days away from my Janome, I must finish quilting the “Good to be Green” piece before the end of the week.
