Yes, Erika (and family) came to visit over Passover/Easter week. It was only reasonable that they check out their new house. We thought the children's flu had passed. While here, granddaughter and Joe went out to hang eggs in her carefully chosen spots. But much of the time she still needed to rest. We didn't rest so much and caught the flu. Life was slow the last two weeks, but stitch I did.
I had an assignment to quilt "canyon." Probably only I would express it literally, but when the Palo Duro Canyon is just outside my home town and is second in size to the Grand Canyon....and Georgia O'Keefe painted her time spent there, you want people to know about it. I could quilt nothing else. But I still have a month before "Reveal Day" at Material Mavens to think of something else and do it better. I could add a flying crow from Georgia's painting. I painted muslin with Jacquard fabric paints and quilted with #8 embroidery thread.
Today I realized I better get started on the Katie quilt for Project Hope.http://www.prohope.org/ This year the topic is bugs and nature, so I made one block. I have been wanting to make a 36 square 12" block. It made me so happy, I want to do more. Click photos to enlarge.
