Happy Easter from last night’s Vigil Mass. My daughter and son-in-law had wanted a pillow so I made one with copper fabric for their seventh anniversary last week. It was my first time using Essex linen. … and the back had one special word for them. My Scrappy Trip Along went to a lady my sister-in-law cares for who recently moved. Miss Thelma is quite tickled with her new quilt.
My husband’s boss had a baby boy, so after snooping through his photos, Kevin said they have blues in their home. I’ve chosen my fabrics. After I’m finished with a major project, I’ll start cutting! Value choices and the quilt along instructions can be found on Kelly’s blog.
… and in black and white…
Another gal and I are making 17 off white scapulars for the Altar Servers’ new robes. They will be worn at the Easter Vigil. Even with Patty creating the pattern, it took me 4 1/2 hours to complete the first one.
My friend, Joanne, sent me the fabric and asked me to make this quilt for a co-worker. I was binding it in the car, so took a photo of it in front of Mt. Hood.
Kevin has been wanting to take this photo and set a 25 second exposure, so we had to sit still for that long.
The nearly full moon was so bright that the stars didn’t show so well this time. We took our 28 year old tent along and it held up through 30 mph wind gusts from midnight through the morning.
We’re gearing up for our end of the summer Yosemite backpack, so we headed to Table Mountain and got a 17 mile hike in. It was pretty drizzly for all but the last few miles.
We started through a clear cut, but were in the lush forest a lot.
Most of the trail was the Pacific Crest Trail (Mexico to Canada) which we love.
My dining room floor serves as my design wall and right now 324 Value quilt pieces are arranged on it and, at a minimum, need to be put into piles to sew together later.
