Things going on

..but not much sewing.

This tiny thing is the only sewing project I completed, or even worked on, for the last month. It had to pull double duty as my Project Quilting #6 Challenge (create something using a zig zag pattern) and the March Color Palette challenge. It’s approximately 12” x 5”.  I’ve named it “Mountain Reflection” because the world needs another mini quilt based on a mountain theme. :-/

I was able to use only my hand dyed fabrics without dyeing more. I couldn’t decide on the binding color, so I used both. The application was pretty easy and I think it’s a nifty effect.

If you click on the above photo it will take you to the linky party for the Color Palette finishes for March and the top photo will take you to the Flickr group for Project Quilting.

Here’s the palette for April. What’s your first reaction? The story is over at Judy’s blog…funny stuff:) I do love the colors!

So what has been taking up my time? O-n-g-o-i-n-g and t-e-d-i-o-u-s house fixer-upper tasks and way too many doctor visits and tests. None of the medical stuff is alarming, but all has to be dealt with. It was my first experience with a CT scan and it’s a good thing the tech warned me about the “pee your pants sensation” that comes with the IV contrast. So weird!

My poor Etsy shop is very neglected, so I was excited to have my little bowl in a front page treasury!


Earl Scruggs passed away and the music world lost a legend.  What a great talent! Mr. DJ spent hours in his youth learning Foggy Mountain Breakdown and some of his other tunes.

Enjoy your day! I’ll be engaging in the super gratifying task of dispersing a mounded collection of soil and rocks to various alternate locations using a hand held excavating device and a single axle transporting tool. Wish you were here!!
