From the top we have MJ in Michigan, Tracey in CT, Comicbooklady, Keryn, Quilt Diva Julie, Hedgehog, Tanya, Mereth, and Wendy.
I won't go into raptures about these marvelous blocks (and I know there are more coming!) but do check out my sidebar and go to everybody's blog (who has one) and tell them what a great job they did - they've posted their individual blocks. There is some amazing work here - I'm learning from my students.
Keryn and Mereth very kindly included some fabric hand-dyed by Lisa Walton. It's gorgeous and I love it. So does Lily.
A bit of photographer geekiness. I had to turn off the automatic flash in order to get this shot of Lily. I think it looks great and I didn't even jiggle the camera too much.
We've had some sun here and there. Not enough, but that's another story. I had the best light the other day when I was near the Louvre. I've taken pics of these ships coming out of the side of the building before, but here are some more. It was three in the afternoon and the light was golden (that's cuz the sun is going down early this time of year) - it looks completely different than on a sunny summer afternoon.
