The 12x12, River Bath is finished. I am going to send it off to SAQA, as soon as I fill out the online form and pay my dues for 2016. Oops. This was the first small quilt I've ever done. Wish they all sewed up this fast. 

I have also been experimenting with layering and colors. The little square on the right was done very randomly like a free association session. Freud would be proud. With the one on the left, I put a little bit more thought and planning into it, (but not much) and was happier with the results. I like the way the little bits or orange and gray seem to melt into the turquoise dots. Not planned. Duchamp would be proud. 

We are thankfully heading up to the parsonage this weekend for 3 lovely days. Catfish festival on Saturday. See the kids on Monday. And hopefully putt around in the little boat on Sunday. Miss Ivy is coming with me again. I have possible plans for her.

Boababs and finish lines

I am finally beginning to see a light at the end of the tunnel with Many Moons. Doing wonky stars with free motion quilting for the pattern. When next I post about this quilt, it will be completed which should be by the end of next week. 

Driving home the other day, I saw the sun setting behind this big wonderful Boabab tree that I pass almost everyday, and thought I would share. I'm not sure how it got where it is, which is sandwiched in between the traffic of US 1, the railroad tracks and the Fort Lauderdale airport. Wedged into this noisy, bad smelling place. It doesn't belong here. I know how it feels. I wish I could rescue it but I can't even rescue myself right now from this noisy, bad smelling place.
