Sunday, Sunday...

Well, I'm going to try Tonya's suggestion and load my photos in the center instead of to the left, and see if that helps any with the spacing problems I'm having.

So let's try putting up Dad's River Dreams Quilt that disappeared yesterday:

Well, that seems to have worked...I think.

So, let's add a couple of kids' quilts I've made over the years. Here's an I Spy for my grandkids. Can you see that I added their names, as a crossword puzzle, among the I Spy squares?

Well, by gum! That seems to have worked, too...thanks, Tonya! Shall we go for a trifecta here? How about a little bluework quilt I did for my nephew. I found on-line coloring book images, printed them out and traced them on white fabric, then embroidered them in blue, setting them in stars afterward. I liked the result, and so did he:


I'm on a roll now! What about one that was WAY outside my comfort zone. I'm not an orange person, but a friend in France had a baby girl. Mom loved orange and lime green, so I challenged myself to design a quilt she might like. Here's the result:

Well, awwwwright! Let's quit while I'm ahead, for today.

I'm off this afternoon to a fun get-together. In another life, I was a professional ballet dancer. My former ballet company is having a reunion this afternoon, at our old rehearsal studio. Haven't seen some of these dancers for years...this should be a lot of fun! Will report more tomorrow.

Love the quilts. I am an orange person and love the baby quilt. I will have to keep that in mind for when (not for a long time) become a grandma.

Hey, you did it! Fun quilts. I think that orange one would be out of my comfort zone as well, but fun.

Wonderful quilts! And I'm still jealous you were a real ballerina!
