I took a break from my Cottage CQ bubbles this week-end to make a little floral sample for a class I'll be teaching this spring. I've got lots of work to do to prepare for this teaching debut of mine! So it was good to pull out the bright colors of spring and do some different stitching for a few days....and start thinking about writing up all those hand-outs....
I had some nice sunrises as I worked away....
The fog forms above the river below us...I always love being above the fog (instead of in it, especially in my own head.)
Here is my little sample. It measures 9" X 10".
There are some old friends on here, and a few new ones, too...the primula and the achillea.
That sweet little vintage monogram ribbon in the lower left was a gift from my dear friend Freda. I think I'll be signing all my projects with it from now on. Thanks, Freda!!!
Well, my quiet routine is about to be disrupted by a LOT of traveling. We leave Friday for Mexico, and right after we get home, I turn around and am off again for my annual quilt retreat with 70 other quilters---it is the most wonderful "same time, next year" gathering--at the little YMCA conference center at Point Bonita, California. So my posts are not going to be as regular as they normally are....but I'll pop in a few times between now and the 7th of February.
Meanwhile, I do want to say I am so excited about the interest in the Crazy For Quilts contest being held by the Alliance for American Quilts. I can't wait to see what everyone creates!
