What's on your menu?......It could win you fabric from Green Fairy...again!.
Follow your heart...... What a whirl of 3 months.....We have dived in head first to our new life in the NW and continue to thank God for the fun and beauty we discover each day. My quilting has become little ditties that are moments for reverie as I piece and quilt them. The above small quilt was inspired by a family mountain bike ride Saturday morning and the pattern, Little Hills. I started with a pattern but that didn't last long.... he he. Biking In Paradise.....Quilting this was great practice. Became a gift for a couple who have a small child who will one day mountain bike with them as NOah is doing with me and Sean.....A sort of early celebration for them! When asked by people why we moved...answer is easy, leave a demanding career to return to my roots of family and nature and exercise and offer new oppurtunities for my son....my trails in St. George have become trails that are ever changing in Seattle. Below was a mountain bike trail but then....just didn't like it. When I chopped here and there it exclaimed to me, "I am a retro vase..." Today is my last day of my sabbatical and it has been a delight! It has been PURE BLISS! The above retro floral is for my newest fav bistro, Skelly and the Bean. The business story behind its opening is amazing and a celebration of community! Google if you have a chance. I am creating this little ditty for her quaint self. The green on the bottom of the quilt is to mimick the retro formica tables we have all eaten on. How can you not fall in love with a eatery when it has the below menu...look at the a la carte! And on the back will be a cheeky little label honoring Noah's duck confit biscuits and gravy.... Quilting can be so entertaining for me and I hope that you have enjoyed this random little celebration on Monday. MONDAY'S MANTRA....What's on your menu? I had so much fun giving away fabric last week that why not do it again! Leave a comment about the mantra and tomorrow morning I will announce the winner. Make it a delicious comment to satiate my hunger of hearing from you! Savory or sweet, up to you...... Love, Em
