Three things to be happy about:
(1) nurturing creativity
(2) twinkling stars
(3) warm peach cobbler
Last week a friend was telling me all about the peach cobbler she made for Christmas dinner. It's an Aretha Franklin recipe she found on the Food Network - man was my mouth watering!
Doesn't that look good, with a scoop of vanilla ice cream??
Gotta make me some!
When Bonnie released clue #6 to En Provence last Friday, I wanted to shout "Green at last! Green at last! Thank lordamercy there's green at last!"
Looking at the green strips she was cutting though, I had to rethink my greens because I wasn't sure about some of the lighter ones.
Avocado ... avocado ... yellow-green? Do these work??
I removed a couple that I wasn't sure would fit the bill and substituted a few different ones.
I'm ashamed to admit I made a trip to JoAnn's and got this fabric, after pledging to use my stash for this mystery!
But then after the final clue was released yesterday and I saw what the green has to do in the quilt - I felt lots, lots better about my selections! There are still some that I'll eliminate from the En Provence box, but for the most part I'm satisfied that I have a good variety, up and down within that avocado/yellow-green category.
My first instinct is to pretend the last clue isn't available yet, and finish clue #6; that's probably the best thing right now to keep focused, because for step #6 we only need to make sixty-four ... sixty-four ...
Sew forth and sew on
