Sunday Sundries

Sunday, November 30th, 2008

Today was a pretty good day. We went to church early to hear Marcus Borg talk about the season of Advent. Today is the first Sunday in Advent. I love to see the giant advent wreath hanging above us. The new blue vestments were on view today. Wow! They sparkled. The creators and makers had stenciled different motifs with silver fabric paint and then embellished with Swarovski crystals. Not my taste. But I was not asked for my input so I will just be silent and ponder the design in my head.

After a foggy morning, the sun came out. I took a quick walk with Mr C and Maggie and then got to work finishing the Dead Sea piece.

As I was finishing the quilting, I decided to try to keep the uneven edges that I had cropped out of the previous photo. I like it. It is my style to have the wonky edges, don’t you think? I used Pellon in the structure so that I could satin stitch the edges.

I took some photos of this and the 12 X 12 math quilt. You can see all of the reveals on the 12 X 12 blog.

I took my sunset walk with Miss Maggie and wow! did we see a gorgeous sunset. The western sky was aglow in red. Wish I had had my camera with me.

Then I set out to pick up pizza for supper. When I came out of the store, I saw that I had a flat tire. I called Mr C, figured he would be faster than AAA. So, tomorrow, I have to take time out of my day to go out to Costco, where we bought these tires very recently and see if it can be repaired or if I have to get a new one.

I sometimes start to panic when I consider how fast the time is going by and the other work that I want to complete, But, it will be what it will be.
