Happy Leap Day! A bonus day. Pat and I went to see some quilt and textile pieces by two local quilt artists: Lori Lupe Pelish and Peg Foley. Both very different and very interesting.
And did you think I was doing nothing at all? I seemed to have plowed out of my quilting funk anyway using the tried and true method of “just doing it” ie – do it whether you really want to or not because a deadline or two is looming and you just have to. In other circles this might be known as priming the pump or spinning the wheel – aka building some momentum. Anyway, for your viewing pleasure, a non-official photo of the pink and green quilt.
Green to the Power of Pink
Thanks to the folks on QuiltArt for pointing out this great set of “rules” to rebuild the world. Simple but thought provoking.
Quiet week around here. Mid-winter funk? who knows. It’s back to being cold which I guess is better than the few days we had of mud-season. Too early for that kind of stuff.
I did get the sewing machine up and running again so I’ve been working on what can only be called “the top-secret project of 2004.” Don’t worry, there will be a big announcement. And I’ve been working on, and will be working tonight on a project that my Mom and I are doing together. Rest time’s over I guess. Sometimes that’s what deadlines are for – they make you say – whoops, no more bon bons for me – gotta get cracking or there won’t be anyone to blame but me.
At work we were discussing talking between two tin cans connected with a string. Most of us had done that. The customer at the time seemed skeptical. I allowed as we had “real” princess phones between bedrooms. My Dad ran the wiring through the heating ducts somehow as I recall. The phones were pretty darn cool and I remember that they lit up too. Now that’s a flash from my childhood.
And now back to your regularly scheduled programming.
An anonymous friend emailed to show me what working for a very large, monopolistic company was really like. I wondered what they might serve for lunch for instance but when you’re big, policy and lunch are the same thing:
The good news is that we can expect he’ll be working for the cause of good and light in no time at all. And anonymous – at least we get “koolaid” with our lunch at Apple – it tastes a little odd, but I so look forward to it.
You know I spend a lot of time looking at the sky and clouds. Today’s Astronomy Pic of the Day is a keeper – great anvil-shaped cloud and an explanation of what’s up with that. All this and a link wherein cloud structure is explained so that it makes sense.
oooooh oooooh oooooh – and this – something Naomi and I have discussed previously.
