Mom took a class from Karen K. Stone some 6 or 7 years ago. Paper piecing was not Mom's idea of fun (even with Robyn Pandolph fabric), so she put the project away. I never saw it until last year when Mom was cleaning out her studio.
|The light was not quite right, and the whole quilt photo was not good. I will try again soon.|
I am liking this quilt (that sounds ridiculous; I totally love this quilt). It is the only one Mom and I have worked on together. I wish, wish, wish I lived closer to her so we could work on more projects together.
Meanwhile, at my house, the karate belts got a good washing and hung up to dry; then I started zig-zagging them together until I ran out of thread.
On my run to the store for more thread, I stopped by the thrift shop. It was my lucky day. I was getting into the check out line to purchase a novel when I spied a colorful jacket.
Oh dear, five dollars worth of heaven on a hanger!
Ellis Island is the novel I picked up, and then I stopped at the library to pick up a reserve they had waiting for me. I am reading The Warmth of Other Suns first, since it has to go back to the library. I may not be doing any sewing this weekend. You absolutely cannot put "Suns" down once you start it. I am not going to say more about it except this: Get the book. Read it.
And thank God for all the blessings in your life.
