Quick Check-in

Wednesday, March 23rd, 2011

I am staying up late waiting for Mr C to come back from retrieving our Portland family at the airport. They got delayed in Las Vegas on their trip home form North Carolina where they were visiting the other Grandma and Grandpa.

I finished fusing the first chartreuse piece and started the quilting. I have a new Janome 7700 and I just love it. It is so quiet and sews like a dream. Above is a cropped bit of a sneak peek.

Tonight, Mr C and I hung out with the literati at Trinity listening to and discussing the poetry of Denise Levertov with the poet laureate of Oregon, Paulann Petersen, who studied with her at Stanford. I enjoyed it very much.

My Indigo Moons is doing ok on Ebay. I was very nervous about it. How embarrassing to list it and have it sell for 99 cents! I sent the link to our tour leader and the other folks who were going on the tour. He then sent the link to 500 people on his mailing list, many of whom who have taken the trip with him before. I also mentioned it on the art quilt list. Someone e-mailed that she had bid a rather high bid. Right now, the bidding that shows is not that high. We shall see. Here is the link, if you want to make a bid.
