I love to shop at thrift shops, and I found a lovely queen-sized coverlet there last week. It has an all-over quilted pattern on a sateen fabric that I think may have (or be) bamboo. There are no manufacturer's labels, so I'm guessing.
It makes a nice foil for the bedrunner I just made for a friend from work. She had given me the small squares she found in her mother's sewing room after her mother passed away; she gave them to me three years ago. I know this because I made a pillow from some of her mom's left over blocks and blogged about it. I enclosed a note with the bedrunner saying I'd left the background purposely recessive to allow the nuggets of color to shine, like a mother who has passed on has left her daughter to shine on the Earth with a background of the Universe.
I used that multi-stitch zig-zag to quilt it, and I like the back as well as the front.
I am doing my best to include lots of healthy vegetables in my diet. Above is two poached eggs on a bed of "super greens" sprinkled with ground flax seeds and a slice of toast made of sprouted wheat bread. AND coffee. Coffee forever.
So I hopped into my car to head to the East Cobb Quilters' Guild and I noticed the really round numbers on the odometer of my 2002 Nissan Altima. I am happy my little car is still working so well. Last week, in the dark, on my way to purchase dog food after work, I tried to surf an island in the middle of a very busy street. Talk about freaked out. A young man came into the middle of the street from a local business to ask what had hit me. I sheepishly had to admit I ended up on the island all by myself. Tires are still inflated and I've not noticed any leaking fluids. All good.
