Por Arriba, Por Abajo

During my 15-Minute Challenge (turned one hour) sessions this week, I finished the paper-pieced Easter table topper flimsy.  Needs quilting, etc., which I hope to finish this weekend between work assignments and whatever folly comes my way.

I took this photo in front of my patio door to get whatever light I could on the subject on this cold, gray day.  The 80-degree sunshine of last weekend has been replaced by a steady rain/snow and temps in the mid-30s today.

After I moved the flimsy, I lay on the floor in the same spot and looked up through the patio door at the sky.

Interesting contrast, huh?  I didn't change these to black and white; they're right out of the camera.

A good day to be in the sewing room.

Sometimes we have to create our own sunshine.

The post title translates to "From Above, From Below."  It's also the title to a Ricky Martin song that'll get your booty moving.

Love it! A lot! You have a great eye for fabrics.

Sorry about your grey weather. We had it last weekend and this weekend we've got your nice weather.

Loved the Ricky Martin :D. Perfect tie-in to your day!

Now if I could just get these rotten taxes done so I can sew!

Your paper pieced blocks look fantastic P. (I havent even made one yet -possibly today) The colours are wonderful and they look so perfect!

I'm thinking maybe a table topper is all I'll get done too...

Love the pictures. Very strak and arty.

That block looks much more spring-y than those photos! It was that way around here yesterday too. But we are having sun and warm some days too and I am loving them!

Great colors!!! Very springtime. Who cares if it's gloomy outside when you have such pretty things to look at? ;)

Susanne said...

What a bright and cheery block. I love paper piecing and really don't know why I don't do more.

Do hope the sun shines again real soon.

blessings, jilly

Your paper piecing is bright and sunshine-y even if your skies are not.

Come to California, P! 92 degrees at my house today.
