A crisp, clean rain is falling today and I am loving it!
US Open tennis to watch and sewing to be done...serendipity!
I finished piecing Holiday Happenings, designed by Monique Dillard.
I have a long list of tops that need to be quilted now.
I saw an interesting adaptation of cross hatching on Diane Gaudynski's blog called Houndstooth.
It might look interesting on the borders. My first inclination is just to do continuous line quilting in the pieced blocks and maybe wreaths in the light squares.
Any ideas on how to machine quilt this one...holiday themed?
Finished 2 more blocks for my sampler.
Take a look at the Flickr site if you haven't lately.
I seriously love these blocks in the brown and pink colorway!
Slowly, but surely, I am appliqueing those little willow tree leaves on the last block of Autumn Houses.
What a painful process it has been...7 more to sew down.
At night, we hear a bone chilling, bleating sound that we could not identify.
Yesterday evening we discovered its source.
A coyote has moved into the valley behind the cabin.
A family of foxes has inhabited the area for the last few years.
Mr. Fox is the source of the noise.
He is admantly barking (sounds more like bleating though) at the coyote to leave his feeding grounds.
I love Mr. Fox's tail.
My rainy day goal is to finish those darn leaves, and then finish piecing the center of Pinwheels for Caroline. Wish me luck and don't forget to leave any suggestions for how to quilt my Holiday Happenings.
