Hello hello from sunny Austin TX. I've been here a week, and it's heaven to be with my first grand baby, Charlotte Jane. Our very first selfie attempt:
It is just so fun to be here, in their busy young household. Seeing my "baby" being a mother really is such a huge thrill! Kaela making waffles Sunday morning:
I'm helping Kaela get organized in their new home, and soaking up every minute with Charlotte! Big happy smiles and she's finding her voice too - it's so cute!
Oh ya, quilting;).
Here's my mini for September, finished a few weeks ago. I used all scraps from mask-making (Japanese fabrics, and Liberty), against an indigo background.
Thank you for bringing us all together, Wendy, to share our little creations. Wendy will list us on her blog The Constant Quilter here.
This one was pure play. I used a little glue to collage my pieces onto a piece of good indigo, and then quilted vertical lines in narrow rows, to secure it all down.
I included a couple of sashiko momiji (maple leaves) for fall. These little leaves are from Susan Briscoe's book Simple Sashiko.
I think this mini will always remind me of making masks. Actually it signals the end of my mask making career, or at least a healthy pause. They are easy to find now, in stores and online. Somehow the thought of never making another mask, is so freeing.
