Calendar quilts again
This one has a set of charm squares I bought several years ago in the background and border. The rest of this pack may find their way into the November quilt- already in progress on the design wall!
Otherwise, I haven't done much sewing. I've been spending time in a really good book, Art Quilt Portfolio: The Natural World. It is the first in a series from Martha Sielman, who also put together the "Masters" art quilts books. The next one is portraits and is already available for pre-order. It will feature Kathy Nida , whose blog is one of my favorites (link to the right)
Here's a Green Tip I hadn't thought of before. How many times do you go out to eat at a place where you know you'll be bringing home leftovers? It happens to me a lot. It never occurs to me to bring a container to use for the "bonus meal"- until now! You may be a bit embarrassed the first time, but not only are you saving the planet just a little, but you're saving the restaurant some money. So be proud of yourself!
I am grateful for:
Quality family time
The last sunny days of summer to enjoy.
A kitty curled in my lap.
Good days for baking
