So I was telling Shay, in response to her query on my previous post about whether I came away from the lake feeling peaceful and zen, that indeed I did. And in my zen-like state, I eventually noticed that I'd been walking around the park, all peaceful, in a new shirt from which I had not removed the tag.
And after that, we went across town to a thrift store, where I scored some Pyrex. All peaceful and zen.
A couple weeks ago, I took advantage of a sale on solids at Connecting Threads (still going on). From left, to right, they are Carrot, Mint, Meadow, Cornflower, Peach, Sprout, Spring Green, Blush, Custard, and Apricot. Aren't they yummy?
Some of these will be used in the kaleidoscope quilt I'll be making for the quilt-along. Would you like to see the other fabrics I'm using? Are you sitting down?
I really do hope it all works out and that it looks less Battle Royale and more Can't We Just All Get Along? Because I've got such a great name picked out for it, if it turns out. If not, I may have to call it something else.
Such as, a Colorful Clusterf**k. Or, you know, "CC" for short.
Have you seen the new Flickr group called How Should I Quilt This? I'm going to upload my black and white quilt top photo to the group for input. Feel free to chime in with any suggestions in the comments here too. Keep in mind I'm still relatively new at the free-motion quilting thing. I'm not against stretching a bit, but I think something like feathers are still beyond me at this point.
You know what I would like to see in my backyard, other than the population of woodland critters who think my flower bed is their own personal Garden of Eden?
That would be the guy who's supposed to be working on my deck. It's been 10 days since he was last seen. Maybe he fell down a giant rabbit hole?
Oh, and I almost forgot. There was basting today. Finally.
