Making Hay While the Sun Shines



The sun is certainly shining, and I am attempting to keep moving through my daily to do list. I had two great days with friends. Something I have not been able to do in a while. It was wonderful! I felt rejuvenated.

Yesterday, I had lunch with Del Thomas and Terry and her daughter. Terry made a delicious salad and had rice crackers for me and tangerines for dessert. It was perfect. Del brought some small pieces of work from her collection and I really loved seeing the beautiful textile art. I had to rush off because I was scheduled for an SDA Conference Staff conference call. I didn’t get home in time so I had to pull off into a parking lot and call in from my cell.

Today, I started a new piece. I am starting with those little cruciform blocks. I have some dye-painted silk that I made in a workshop two or three years ago. I decided to Mistyfuse it and play around with some fused segments. I like what is happening.



We are have such luscious weather. It is like July in May. Scooter is too hot so he is going in for a haircut tomorrow. I took an hour this afternoon to run to the nursery to get some more plants — veggies, herbs and some flowers. Tomorrow, before it gets too hot, I will get out and do my planting.



I will leave you with this pretty photo I took at the Rhodie Garden this morning.

    I like those cruciform blocks too — nice interplay between the lines of the crosses and the lines in the fabric.

    It was lovely to have a little visit and see a few of your quilts “in-the-fabric”. So much better than photos. I’ll certain make arrangements for a meeting next time I am up in the great Pacific Northwest.
