I write. I quilt. I cook. I take photographs. What else is there?

Cold and Rainy

The wonderful warm weather we had has left us with the passing of the remains of Earl.  It's cold, windy and drizzly here: the beginning of Fall.  Sigh.  Had to come some time, I guess.  I hope there are still a few balmy days left.  You never know, up here.

I have a friend coming into town, so I'm going to try to find some gold  Metallic thread for that wide red border of the Christmas quilt while we're shopping today.  If I can't find any, then I have to order some.  So, that quilt grounded for the moment, I moved back to the Firefly blocks I had.  I think a smaller quiltlet is more what I want from this and so I cut some pieces for sashing and borders and put them all together.  It's now pinned and ready for quilting.


No editing of my writing yet today.  But the day is young.

Mom's birthday is tomorrow, so "Happy Birthday, Mom!"
