What a spectacular day in the northeast today.
I couldn't decide what to do first.
So I went for a nice long walk by the water to collect my thoughts.
When I returned I was ready for a bit of sewing.
I am working on a donation quilt right now.
A medallion of sorts.
It is inspired by one of Kathy's quilts at Material Obsession.
I can't find the picture right now, but I promise to show it in the next post.
While we were at Quilting by the Lake,
Kathy spoke about contrast and helping your piece pop.
I realized that while I use a ton of rich color,
sometimes there is not enough contrast.
So I am working on that.
This little project was started a month ago,
and has been hanging around ever since.
It is going to be a wreath.
It is taking FOREVER to tie all those scraps.
But I will keep at it, because I think it will be really fun.
Like my sewing corner?
It has reached the tipping point again.
A total chaotic mess.
I can barely cut anything.
This week I am going to visit my niece, nephew and family.
I wanted to find a cute little doll for my niece, one, who I haven't met yet.
Have you been to Toys U Us lately?
OMG, I know I am old because I was wandering around like
a shock victim. I was asked if I needed help three times.
I was just trying to find a sweet baby doll for a little girl.
They all looked like they were on crack.
So I settled for this sweet little Peebles.
Soft, sweet and a red head. Perfect!
On another note . . .
I spent yesterday afternoon in the city.
In Bryant Park.
With some hilarious, very fun peeps.
You know who you are!
Hope you had as much fun this weekend as I did!
