Cool breezes

Three things to be happy about:
(1) a clean movie theater
(2) your favorite bookstore section
(3) a jogger at a stoplight

Well we asked for it, and here it is: cooler weather!  In fact, it's downright cold to me - last night I slept in my flannel pj's with two quilts on my bed!  I'm determined not to turn on my heat just yet.

I've been doing "behind the scenes" stuff off and on lately, one of them being gathering my fabric for my quilters' cruise next month with Bonnie and Pat (woo hooo!).

I'm collecting fat quarters but I've also been cutting strips from a lot of fabrics, for maximum variety.  I think I need to step up my pace though, the cruise date is November 3 - just one month from now!!!  I was telling a friend it will come and then be over so fast, my head will be spinning!

I don't think I've ever shown this quilt I did for a community service project...

I think this was made about 2-3 years ago, I'm not sure.  For some crazy reason I don't think I kept a photo of it, this is a scan of a photo taken by fellow guild member Elsie.

I made the birthday cake a la Mary Lou Weideman, and trees a la Gwen Marston/Freddy Moran.  I think it turned out well, it looked even prettier in person.  The quilt was donated to either Holy Cross or St. Mary's Hospital, at this point I don't remember - we've done so many community service projects!

Well, keep warm if that's where you want to be...  sew forth and sew on til later



  1. Love the idea of a jogger stopped at a red light! We are cold too - like someone turned a switch we went from sticky, sweaty heat to brrrrr. Sweats, sweaters, heavy socks, extra blankets and hot cocoa. Oh, and the kitty wanting to snuglle all the time.

  2. Your weather sounds very close to what we are getting. I heard you had wind too and the climbers checking out the Washington momument for earthquake damage were sidelined a while.
