It’s been a crazy few weeks, finishing up quilts for deadlines. August 31 was the Fiberart International deadline, and I submitted three entries. Two weeks later the Quilt National deadline loams.
A nice surprise came in the mail yesterday – a dragon! 2012 being the year of the Dragon, our Japanese friends Kazuko and Takehiko sent us a beautiful new year’s card and calendar. I love this guy because he’s friendly, comical, happy, fierce, and a little goofy all wrapped into one swirly mist. I’m sure … Read More
Yesterday I saw this flat cat in the neighbor’s driveway, so I stopped the car to find out why he was so flat. This was the answer. And this tense little stand-off continued for some time, both the cat and bunny completely oblivious to me getting out of the car and snapping photos. Don’t fear … Read More

I’ve been tagged again by Thelma and Jane. This happened to me earlier this summer, and I blew it off, so now I’m trying to make amends. Also I’m tagging Judy, Susan, Cynthia, Roz, Susie, Sandy, and Joanie they don’t seem to have been tagged yet, and they seem like good sports. Apparently you have … Read More
I’ve been having lots of ideas for new things to try, and here’s another doodle — I’m calling it the Thread Said series. Don’t know where it’s going though, just playing around. I think it’s important to play, and summer seems like a good time to do it.
