"What if every neighborhood was this one?"....Friendly, Courteous, Cheerful, Helpful


Last week I fell in love with Gloria Loughman's book, Quilted Symphony, and now I begin the piecing journey....Her VILLAGE STRATA reminds me of Greco paintings that I saw in Spain years ago with the deep purples and sense of mystery or foreboding, can't you just see a very gaunt faced man in the bell tower of the church?...or perhaps a Title cover for PILLARS OF THE EARTH?.....but mine, I choose to CELEBRATE the brightness of summer that will someday arrive when the rains cease and the delight in thinking of a neighborhood based on the values of Boy Scouts.....Can't get home soon enough to start cutting and playing....

Little did I know that waiting for an admit can be so fun when you work next to a quilt shop and just HAVE to drop in a take a peek at the selection....

Speaking of CELEBRATING boy scouts, Have you visited Vesuviusmama for her scout outing of the past weekend?  Never a dull moment in this lovely lady's life!  Drop in and say HI to Erin. 

Love, Em

I can't picture you doing anything dark and foreboding. Only color and brightness from you, my friend :)
