Let the Quilting Begin

I finished fusing Mother lode to the batting and found a great batik for the backing.

I had to run to Fabric Depot to find some thread for the unusual color palette of this quilt. Several dollars later, I was back home and started the quilting.

Tonight, I had a wonderful time at a Literary Round Table at Trinity. We listened to some Leonard Cohen music and discussed the meaning, poetry and spirituality of his lyrics. So now I have Leonard’s music running around in my brain. One of my favorite lines is from Anthem: There is a crack in everything; that’s how the light gets in. This has so much meaning for me, an imperfect and “cracked” being.

Finally, the pink season and pink snow has come early to Portland.

    Pink snow would be a huge improvement over the white stuff!

  2. ah Pink Snow. delights.
    here, the white stuff is finally melting off, it is 62 and sunny today, although there is a rumor of new snow tonight. HAH, I refuse to believe that.

    Leonard Cohen: the poetry holds well doesn’t it? every song a prayer, even the darker notes of sorrow, of despair, are psalms.
    Your work: gets better all the time.

    is Scooter enjoying the new season?
