Top of the morning quilty friends! It was a beautiful weekend here in Podunk. Try as I might I just couldn't stay in all day and quilt. There's much to do in order to prepare for the winter. After doing some garden maintenance it was back to the empty design wall. So I grabbed the one on top of the UFO pile to fill the void. This one could have been done weeks ago, and should have. Luckily, Connie's in no big hurry to have it done. Now to dig through her husbands shirts and decide how to work them all into the quilt. I've a rough idea of what I'd like to do. You can read more about it here and here. And if you'd like to see more Design walls hop on over to Judy's to see what's being stitched up by quilters around the globe.
My quilt frame faces my design wall so it will give something to look at occasionally and ponder as I finish quilting up Cherry Blossom Marmalade. Can't show you the whole thing yet, I want the changes to the pattern to be a surprise!
So here's a picture I took from the front porch of vultures doing some type of happy dance. What you can't see is the road kill just to the right of these ugly birds. Didn't think you would be interested in seeing that! These birds would sway from side to side in unison, dancing, and then more of their friends would land and join the dance. While trying to get a better picture I scared them away, darnit, I really was enjoying the performance. Just as well, I needed to get back to work.
See you soon!
