Another one done

Three things to be happy about:
(1) mid-afternoon postings
(2) the value of the little moment
(3) a facial and aromatherapy

Hi everybody, it's mid-afternoon and I'm posting, yaaay!  Normally I like it to be done first thing in the morning, but that's not a rule... is it?

I finished the border on my little basket quilt but I don't want to show it to you right now, I promise you'll see it later! 

About Wegman's - it's a pretty kewl grocery store that has fresh veggies (lots of organic ones!) a bakery to die for, and a hot foods section that would make you drool!  I especially like their oven-fried lemon fish, yummy!  The bread pudding isn't bad either, if you catch them on a good day - they do go a bit overboard on the fresh fruit they toss on the top!  See their website here

I finished the 15x15 solids challenge quilt that I'm swapping with Yetunde...

It's "Gravitation" by Kandinsky - you've seen the original art in a previous post. 

When I did this one, I was inspired by the way his design seemed to sweep from the bottom right to the upper left corner.  I didn't want to try and make the small blocks of color he used, so I opted for a log cabin style.  I think it turned out pretty good!  I'll give it to Yetunde next weekend.

So I get to choose the next one we'll work on, I have a couple in mind that look pretty interesting. 

Sew forth and sew on til later...



  1. This is so super cool! I love how the quilting adds to the texture and flow of the piece, too.

  2. Hi Linda ... I love the Kandinsky piece and I know Yetunde will like it too (even if she isn't "nice like that" which she is LOL). I just got back from vacation and have spent the past 2 hours in my sewing room -- for the first time in 3 weeks! I've been a good girl and worked on an ongoing ufo!


  3. Looks like a fun piece. I am about ready to start exploring ...

    Call me stuck: what does the pattern say?
