Today, I’m featuring someone else’s work. Sorry about the picture, but all I had was my iphone and a second before a meeting.
Just like I have a mentor, I am a mentor. My friend D., a new quilter, brought this quilt to the office the other day for me to see. She thinks it looks like confetti. She thinks it’s too bright.
I disagree. I think it’s perfect for snuggling under on a cold, gray day. Just the colors make me think sunny, hot days in the garden.
What say you, blog followers? Too bright? Or, just right for a winter throw?
I’m starting a couple of Christmas table runners and cut out trees this morning. Somehow, I managed to cut too many…where is my head sometimes? But, it’s okay…what doesn’t fit the front will go on the back. I’m using up the last of the fabrics from this year’s holiday quilt, and believe me, it’s just scraps that I’m creatively cutting, trying to get just a little bit more out of them instead of sending them to the dog bed bag.
Okay, I don’t really have a dog bed bag anymore. I used to. And, I never made a dog bed and our dogs would be offended to have to sleep anywhere but our beds, so I gave that bag of threads a good toss.
Everybody have a great Tuesday. I wish I could stay home and sew all day. It’s that kind of a cold gray day here. But, the weather will turn by week’s end and we’re back to beautiful sunny days. Maybe some time in the garden this weekend, cutting back. I wish, I wish, I wish, I wish for a sunny day.
Hug somebody. Lane
