(this is of course, not a quilt finished by me but one I am obsessing over, of course)
After a two day work week, I have today off for the start of an abbreviated February vacation (it was three days even before the snow). Lest you be jealous, like someone in our house whose name rhymes with "sob", we will now be making up days until the end of June as a result of this last snow storm and Hurricane Sandy. Sigh. I am extremely protective of my summer vacation days and "snow days" make me weepy. I'd much rather have sunny days off than snowy ones. My students disagree, until June comes!
Anyway, today I contemplated finishing the quilting on my Strips and Bricks quilt, but got caught up in Where'd You Go Bernadette (so, so good if you're looking for an interesting read). The straight line quilting (lots of it) can be a little boring, but I'm finding tackling it in small doses is best. In the meantime, I'm dreaming of that beauty of a quilt above. I'm quite sure I swore off half square triangles rather recently, but I've successfully blocked out the horror. I have a few other projects that need tending to before I can start on that once, which is probably a good thing considering I own very, very little black fabric. How is that possible I have so much fabric and so little black? Hmm... must be rectified in time, I imagine.
I had a hair appointment and went very blonde (all the better to mask some let's call them white hairs which have begun make their presence known ahem). I also picked up some macarons from this little shop, if you're in CT as a belated Valentine's Day gift for my guy. They are delicious, and know because I sampled a raspberry one right after he opened them. That's love. Happy weekend everyone, I hope you are looking forward to many sweet things in the days to come!
