Colour My World



Colour my world with Kaffes and Liberties!  I have been saving these for something special and am 
hoping to put them into my  1718 Coverlet.  




AND

 My lawn is up!!!  Not quite Downton Abbey here yet, but this new grass is the grandest green!

New Start

 

Landscaping work has begun in my backyard at last.  




Remnants of an ancient oil tank were exhumed in the process.  An artifact, maybe?

I just want to see some grass now!  Meanwhile, I am starting a new quilt--

Spring, I think...




 Last week the furnace and this week AC!!   Whatever happened to Spring??  Thankfully, my pink dogwood knows what season it is.  Hope it stays a while...

No problem getting in to hear the Shanghai Quartet today...but I had bought in advance.  Now I get it... make reservations over the phone!!




The program was classic and so was Jacket.  Never goes out of style!

Coat of Arms




I am now the proud bearer of the NYCMetro Mod coat of arms.  I get to wear this genteel jacket wherever I want for the next month and my first stop was lunch after today's meeting.  Wanted to grab a bite at Becco, but no tables were available.  After being turned away at several other lovely spots, ended up at the 8th Avenue Shake Shack.  The line was out the door and down the street in front of The Gentlemen's some kinda club.  Not to worry, no one dared to make a pass at the wearer of this coat-of-arms!

Return to Elm Creek



I made these little 6" Elm Creek blocks a while ago with a focus group at Empire Guild.  They are from "Sylvia's Bridal Sampler" book.  The 2-color combo of burgundy & cream did not work in many of the blocks, so  I added a bow tie (a favorite of mine) and some hexies.  Now to find some more blocks that are 2-color friendly.  Can hardly wait to get the new Red & White book which I hear is coming soon!
