As the sun got higher in the sky, the colors changed (below). Isn't this beautiful? I love it here.

In case you're curious, in the bottom photo you can see our other sister Lynne in the pink shirt on the left. Next to her is her son Oliver, then our brother Bruce's wife Jennifer, Sam in the "Halftime" tee-shirt (he's one of Eileen and Campbell's two sons), Michelle (Bruce and Jennifer's niece), Amelia (Lynne's daughter) is standing, and Campbell is on the far right. Our mom, Mary, is standing in the photo at the top. Not shown: Bruce, my husband Jason and me. I was taking the photos.

I'll feature photos of both quilts in October when they're both finished. Okay?

It's not too early to start thinking about making stuff like this. Well, maybe it is a little early. :)

I saw this poster by James Rizzi in a store window in New York City recently. I asked the store owner if I could take a photo so I could make a quilt like it. He looked like he'd never heard that request before! But he said okay. There's something kind of Anna Williams-ish about this. What do you think?
Thanks, Ellen, for telling me the name of the poster artist.

There is a Translate button at the top of her blog, so you can read her posts in English or Chinese or whatever you want. She has lots of quilts, crochet and other things to inspire us. Keep up all the good work, Nicole.

I think someday exotic hair colors will be very common. Then old photos of people with unaltered brown and blond hair will look very old fashioned.

Take a look at these gorgeous silk twill scarves by Hermes of Paris! (www.hermes.com) I think this ad is so beautiful. Is it the fabrics or the idea of taking a nap on a big pile of pillows by the water that appeals to me? Lol. I could buy a lot of quilting fabric for the price of one scarf: $350!
I used to have long hair like that in the late 60's and early 70's. Did you?

Mine hasn't looked this neat since about 2003. And it never will again, either. They're all jammed into 3 big boxes. And that's after making 20 selvage quilts! Where do they all come from?

By the way, there are over 1,500 followers of the Dainty Squid blog. Are you curious? :)

Edda works part time at the Bernina Sewing Center and Quilt Shop in Kalamazoo, MI. Owner Karen Kortman is a long arm quilter. Edda made this quilt as a store sample to entice people to buy "Quilts from the Selvage Edge." Now there's an idea! :)

I found this photo on Gertie's blog: http://www.blogforbettersewing.com/. By the way, despite the advertisement copy, I think it is a machine. Lol.
Hello to Mom, Lynne, Amelia and Oliver today!

P.S. My sister Lynne says this is a temporary tattoo. She enlarged the photo and looked at the edges; also the tat is shiny on her left collar bone.
P.P.S. FlossieBlossoms says she thinks this is a real tattoo. She saw progress shots on the Dainty Squid blog. Thanks, Floss.

Look at the bindings, more selvages. I like the layout of the closest placemat best. These are so pretty. Visit Brenda's blog at: http://www.scrapsandstrings.blogspot.com/. She's awesome.
