Is the New York Botanical Garden. My sweetie, a good friend and I spent 3 hours walking around, checking out the cherry blossoms and other blooming flowers. I was in part on a quest to take a beautiful, inspiring photo for one of my mini groups. I may go back one day next week on my own and get some more photos as there’s one shot I didn’t get.
There are a lot more images that I’ll include in upcoming posts and some on facebook.
After a delightful lunch we headed over to the Cloisters. It’s such a delight. We hadn’t visited in a very, very long time and our friend was game to go. At one point I sat down to draw and kind of start working out the stitching path for a basket weave. I have an idea flitting around my head for a while cloth that this type of stitching borders. I need to play with how this stitches out before stitching it out on a whole cloth quilt. I think it’ll be a great border. I love the background fill on this metal piece from either the 13th or 14th century. And something similar will end up in one of my whole cloth quilts.
Go quilt your world!
