I am here and happy! I had an impromptu early birthday dinner for myself, Mr C, M & M and their dad, Jack. Stephanie has been working in Brooklyn all week – she comes home tomorrow night. We had grilled salmon, steamed broccoli, roasted potatoes and carrots and cupcakes.
M & M brought me some pretty flowers.
M & M are spending the night, and they have been having a ball with my Wii Fit Plus.
I received a package from my friend Judy Carpenter. Inside was this beautiful silk scarf which she dyed using a sugar syrup resist. It is gorgeous.
I couldn’t move forward on my organ piece because I didn’t have a piece of batting large enough. I did some shopping at Mill Ends, near my house. I bought a large piece of luscious charcoal gray felt, some cotton batting and some thick dark gray felt – not sure what I will do with that – maybe back some quilts to hang using Jane Dunnewold’s method.
I decided to use the charcoal gray felt for the organ piece. I have drawn a grid on it to help me free cut the pieces based on a gridded photo.
And today’s 3 x 3 – made on the fly!
