Stitching the cold winter away.

This isn’t the best picture.  The colors are so much prettier in person.  But still…is this going to end up as another one of my quilts that everyone secretly hopes they don’t receive as a gift?

Here was my inspiration:

From Kaffe Fassett’s new book.

I would have loved to have made this is similar colors, but for the past five years I’ve been determined to use the fabric I have and not buy more (not that I always keep this vow, but I really, really try).

I have used up blues and browns and reds in recent years and now have a fabric closet piled high with golds and pinks and yellows and purples.

It has taken many hours to put the various fabrics together in a hopefully pretty way.  And I know no one will have one like it!  At least I can say it’s a one-of-a-kind creation, right?

Today was my “Taking Mom Out” day.  We headed north to the Newport Creamery and ate hot dogs and hot fudge sundaes before snow flurries urged us to hurry back home.  I absolutely love hot dogs, so today’s lunch was so good.  

Hot dogs and snowflakes don’t go together, but what the heck!  We weren’t complaining.

I’m going to sew more blocks now…see you tomorrow…
