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

Ivy and New Book

Well, it's a cold and white day outside.  We have a wood fire going in the basement and, for the most part, that keeps us toasty.  I say "us", but it's mostly me.  DH, as a native of this area, can handle life a bit colder than I can.  In a few years, though, I'll be the comfortable one when we move to warmer climates.  He'll be the one fiddling with the AC just to get the right temp.  I'm wondering if there's any place that will agree with both of us.

I made my piece for the Free Motion Challenge.  The pattern requirement, Ivy leaves, is a go-to pattern for me.  I often use it.  So I just did a small bit in the border of this quiltlet.  I'll eventually paint it and add more stitching.  Keep an eye for the progress here on the blog.

In other news, my short science fiction anthology is out.

$10.00 plus $3.50 shipping

As I said, it's a short book with seven short science fiction stories. Some of these have won international awards.I'm absolutely thrilled with the book.

Congratulations on the book - the title is gorgeous! Your fmq quiltlet is cute - I'll be intrigued to see what you do with painting - is that thread painting or paint painting??!
