Black and White and Red All Over

Wednesday, May 7th, 2008

I have been hand stitching this little piece for a day and a half, off and on. I know I could have cranked out some machine quilting, but I really love what is going on with the cut up screen printed fabric and I didn’t want to mess with it by trying to machine quilt circles. It is a very organic piece and I thought the hand stitching would be a nice accent. Here is a closeup.

I ran out of red perle cotton, but it turned in to a happy accident as I really like the change in the stitch color.

Thanks to everyone who left me a comment so that I wouldn’t feel so lonely. Yesterday was get last minute shopping and errands done day. Today was laundry and finish the quilt day. Tomorrow is spend the morning with the STASH group, have lunch and come home and pack day. Tomorrow night we are going to the artists and volunteers reception for the Trinity Art Show. That will take care of dinner. We have to be up and off to the airport between 5 and 5:30 am.

I had lots of inquires about my new sandals — color and so on. Here they are — very basic colors — so that they will go with lots of things and very comfy.

You may not hear from me again until I am in Israel. I will take my laptop, but have no idea of internet access. If you are interested, here is a link to our itinerary — A Pilgrimage to Israel.
