Later this week I’m going to post a photo or two of the pansies that have survived the winter with their flowers in tact. I’m eager to see how the dogwood and mountain laurel will do. We’ve been concerned about losing the dogwood for the last few years to a fungus that attacks dogwoods. What I’m hoping is that the very cold, very snowy winter has taken care of the fungus.
Went to Quilt Fest NJ yesterday with Renee and Lorraine. I’d say the show was fairly well attended. I chatted with Liz & Beth from LizzieB Creative. The visit to Tuscadelphia was delightful. I met Linda Lum DeBono who designs with Henry Glass and so much more!
I picked up a few spools of Superior’s Silk thread. This time choosing warm colors – red, orange, pink & yellow – to really pop against either the teal blue or black – whichever quilt comes next.
Yesterday I spent some time working on the next quilt in the “Twilight in the Bronx” series. This morning I realized that I’m working on the wrong quilt. Well, not the wrong quilt, but the quilt I’m working on, another 8 pointed star, isn’t the right quilt for now. The right quilt for now has the 5 pointed star that’s been floating around in my head for weeks. I start drafting tomorrow morning. Looks like freezer paper, compass & ruler will be very good friends tomorrow.
