Thursday This and That

Whew! I’m glad that is over! The RNC Convention that is. To keep my blood pressure stable, I have kept from watching it and only followed live blogging which adds levity to the proceedings.

My quilts arrived home from Southern California yesterday so today, I had to drive to Woodburn to return the two elements quilts as the show is going to make it’s debut next week. It is an hour each way, but it was a pretty day for a drive and I took the back roads rather than the interstate.

I wanted to show you the beautiful etching that I bought in Bodega at one of the galleries. The gallery reps the prints of Stephen McMillan. I was in love with all of his work, especially the larger etchings of the California landscape. Here is a link to his gallery. I bought a small print of trees that I now need to get framed.

When I got home from our trip, I found this beautiful fiber postcard in the mail from my friend, Connie Rose.

This afternoon, I got caught up on my 3 x 3’s. It is almost time to work with another color.


I am hoping to get to work on the water quilt tomorrow. I am attending a memorial service for the husband of a friend in the morning. I can’t believe that it is the end of August and the end of the week. Time goes by too fast for me.

    I really love your 3 x3 – its amazing what you can say in a little square isn’t it? Just wanted to invite you to my Off the Wall Fridays Blog link – where quilt artists share what’s going on creatively on their design studio!

    I went to Stephen Miller’s gallery. Wow! I would be hard pressed to pick a favorite. I really liked his wild mustard and light patterns prints. Your leaf 3×3 is beautiful, as is the postcard from Connie. I cannot believe that August is over. I spotted a Vireo, Yellow rumped Warbler, and a Flicker in the yard this morning – sure sign that fall is on its way. Wishing you a beautiful weekend.
