For months I had my quilt Rumspringa hanging up on the wall directly facing the front door. Figured it would look great to whoever comes to visit if that's the first thing they see. Well, to heck with that - I want to enjoy it myself! So I moved it up on the wall, next to the tv and directly facing the recliner. Ah, now I can enjoy it all the time.
I am so behind on blogging so many things, such as my wonderful teaching trip up to the Orlando Modern Quilt Guild and how I finished three quilts and then unfinished one of them, and wanting to post a tutorial on Playing with Scissors. Agggh, too much. Plus, I spent the whole day sewing - been a long time since I really got going like that (thank goodness the horrible allergies that were making my life miserable have subsided somewhat).
So instead, I'll try to hold ya'all over with kitty photos. You can see the beautious Lily as well as some of my freehand fan quilting:
This came up the last time that I showed this rug. No, I didn't make it myself. It came from Egypt and was made by the women of APE (a horrible acronym that stands for the Association for the Preservation of the Environment ) located in what is commonly known as Garbage City. I only know of one place to buy it in the States and that's from the fair trade store Ten Thousand Villages. It's called a Shaggy Rag Rug, but unfortunately is only sold in black and white with a little bit of color.
Hope that tides you over. Ya'all take care.
