First off a cute cat photo, the ever-delightful Deirdre who was sandwiched between the two big boys looking as pleased with herself as possible. Then a newly obtained fabric with a wonderful pattern and the stack of strips so far.

Fourteen and a half ironed yards of fabric
Now to rummage through the precut squares and strips!
SAQA and Poetry journals arrived in the mail recently.
- SAQA: slim little volume which starts off with a note from the prez chastising members for typos etc in their web pages.
- Poetry magazine: 250+ pages which I could barely put down because of the compelling long article combining current events, poems and photographs.
In more interesting news, I couldn’t sleep the other night and as I lay there (very atypical for me) tossing and turning, I tried to build a calming image in my head. Suddenly I had an idea for a quilt. A pretty big quilt. It’s going to require some fabric acquisition, which by itself is rather exciting. I looked and looked at it, there in my head and liked it more and more. I fretted for a moment or two that I wouldn’t remember it and wondered if I should turn a light on and write it down but I didn’t. I wondered if it would be better pieced or appliqued – not my normal thought process at all! I pondered it some more and finally fell asleep.
The next morning at work I started off answering phones so I took a little pad of graph paper with me and sketched out the basic idea of it.
I’m pretty stoked by the whole thing.
If I cover myself with stamps like this could I get to New Zealand?
Thanks Marge for the magazine! I enjoyed your article. My co-workers were amazed and delighted by all the stamps!
A little blast from the past…
I always liked this quilt (even if the project that it was made for never materialized)
