Medusa at the Grand Palais:
I've been enjoying spending time with my friend Susan here in Paris. We've had some fabulous meals and made whirlwind visits to several museums. No photos, sorry. The weather has been pretty wretched - more like winter than spring. We have had a good time sitting in covered patios that have space heaters while we drink coffee and watch people rush by with umbrellas. We even had five minutes of hail on Friday.
Tomorrow, far too early in the morning, my husband and I leave for Florida. Oh, do I ever want that sun. I'm not sure how much posting I'll get done there - eek, dial-up.
I totally love Kristin LaFlamme's great Log Cabin with a Twist. First, there's the great liberated log cabin quilt that she'd made with awesome colors: very light and sparkly. Then she's added embroideries of her daughter's drawings. It's a delightful, inspiring quilt.
I've recommended before that you go visit Meg's blog Quilt Words. Well go over there again because she's shared the most lovely quilt she's made using thrift store wools and silks. The quilt itself is incredible and she's just done a great job explaining how she made it. It looks so antique and hey, it's another log cabin quilt.
Jenny Bowker pictured some lovely Egyptian embroideries in her 26 March post to Postcards from Cairo. I've always called the placename where these embroideries come from Akhmim and you can see some of mine here.
Eileen posted a couple of peeks at one of Freddy Moran and Gwen Marston's new quilts called Booby Hatch, which they've made for their new book. Additionally, Eileen will print out the comments made about their books and pass them along to the two authors (since they're not wired themselves). You can tell Freddy and Gwen how much you love them, as well as let Eileen know how much you appreciate the book. It's great to see that some of my friends have commented on Eileen's blog already.
That's it for me. I'm going to continue to be somewhat scarce in blogland. Take care.
