Catch-Up Saturday

 I finished the second hat this morning...after my daughter and grandkids left at dawn, I stayed in bed and knit and caught up with podcasts.  Nice way to ease into my day!
 When I had moved through the chores and ended up in the studio, I put the newly bound quilt and added it to the bedding laundry.
 From the dryer, it has just the right look now!  
Next in the studio, I picked out my next water color.  (in this month's issue of Birds & Blooms!)
I didn't take long to get my 5 x 7 area all drawn in.
 Then I set up my new plate for my palette and got everything ready to paint.  Lena watched but didn't try to sit up there-that shattering plate cured her , I hope! 
 This time I filled in my background color first-much easier for me to do it this way.
 I then went to work on the baby quilt and in just a few more passes, I had the meander panto completed.
 I like the way the pastel thread marries the plain block with the print ones.
I even got the quilt labeled and hand sewn to the back!

It was a full day but always it is good to be busy for me after the house is empty again!


  1. A butterfly -- fun! The quilts turned out great, and I love the label on Hannah's quilt. We miss you!

  2. So many beautiful things to see on your blog today. I wish I could paint!

  3. I LOVE how you signed the quilt.

    I can't wait to see your finished moth. We saw one of those moths down in Orlando. It was amazingly beautiful!

  4. So talented! I can't believe the way you just throw quilts together and they are so perfect. Mine are still pretty wonky!

  5. I really love that hat pattern. Your quilts = amazing
    I need to stay super busy the days after I leave my kids or they leave me. THe distance makes my heart ache and the tears flow.


Thanks for taking the time to let me know you stopped by to read my blog!

Another Pair!

The colors look like candy stripes- I thought of the old Fruit Stripes gum  but my daughter said it reminded her of the candy Sprees....
