I was so happy to see my mail yesterday! I received my Fabric of the Month from Silkweaver. The colors this month are gorgeous…Sugar Cookie and Robin’s Egg Blue. I think Robin’s Egg Blue is possibly my favorite color blue. I love it paired with chocolate brown. I also received my fabric from Stitches and Spice. I ordered Ocean Waves from them for my Mermaids of the Deep Blue. This is the same fabric, I believe, that Carol used for her mermaids. It is gorgeous. It goes from lighter at the top to darker at the bottom. I think it will be perfect for this piece. Now, I am just wondering why my hand-dyed fabric from Australia showed up before my plain white fabric from Oklahoma??? Anyway, I am exceedingly pleased with these beauties. I did no stitching last night (that’s twice this week). I had my book club meeting at the museum. We were discussing Hemingway’s The Sun Also Rises. I really enjoyed the book, but there were others there who hated it…so that always makes for an interesting discussion. We looked at the museum’s Cezanne and discussed his painting style vs. Hemingway’s writing style. Very interesting. I would like to read more Hemingway. It is still raining here. We finally got above freezing, so the ice threat is over, for now. But, it has been raining nonstop for several days. It’s enough to make you want to stay home and stitch! So, I pulled out Mystery 9 today to work on, per my rotation. I don’t think I’ve worked on it since September, if you can believe it. It felt good to get back to it. I would like to be done with those dang triangles though! I’ll post a pic next time, as I hope to get a little more done on it tonight. But, in the mean time, here is my latest progress on Lemon Meringue Sampler.
I have just started the meringue on top of the piece of pie, so that will be fun to do. I’ll get back to it on Monday. I went to Jo-Ann’s this morning to get the rest of the thread for Barnabee’s Quest. I looked for a frame for my Winter Snapperland, but the only thing I found the right size was NOT the right color frame. So I’ll have to keep looking. I was hoping to be able to frame it and have it up for a little while though. Tomorrow I go to pick up my next quilt block for my block of the month…it will be interesting to see what colors this one uses.
Walk to Rivendell: I finally got in some walking this week. I am still in the rolling hills of the Green Hill Country (total walked: 10.5 miles).
I am grateful for rainy days.
