I blame Siobhan, who made a fun 12 days of christmas appliqued quilt in these colors a few years ago. Of course I can't find a picture of it on her blog. But believe me, it's fun and bright. But I still never thought that *I* would use these colors. And then of course Sio gave me the striped chartreuse and red fabric a couple of years ago. So I've finally lost my struggle against these happy colors.
I had fun playing with the trees, making different sized blocks. I'm trying to really work on my value - I usually use way too many dark dark fabrics and not enough light. I'm going to make a few more trees and may do some words as well. This will be a wallhanging.
Pokey, of course.
My sweetie and I watched While You Were Sleeping. Just love that movie. Great chemistry between Bill Pullman and Sandra Bullock. I worked on yet more gift bags while we watched. I'm determined to have a big stockpile of them by the end of the year.
The transit strike continues here, but so far no real effect on us. I'm not venturing far from our apartment though. I don't want to get stuck far from home in the inevitable rain. According to the news, the whole strike mess is bound to get worse this week with all sorts of other public sector workers going out. Gee, thanks.
