Hello, Old Friend

It's gray, windy, and drizzly outside; quite a change from the intense heat and sun that we had the last couple of days. This is the kind of day where I wish I could sit near a window and sew or knit all day long. I can only do it during nap and bedtime these days. Fortunately, Owen took a nice long early nap today, so I hauled my sewing machine down to the kitchen table and pulled out the bed quilt that I started, oh, six years ago. It's a pinwheel design in cranberries and chocolate browns, with one beige fabric stuck in there to add a little lightness to it. It's a huge quilt, and slow going, but someday I will finish it. Someday!

New Project!

I know I've been MIA for a while. I've been playing computer games instead of blogging. But the novelty of the game is wearing off a little and I'm more willing to skip it for several days in a row.

A friend and I walked down to the little quilt store that we have here in town. I've been living here since the end of September, and would you believe that this was my first time in that store? I liked a lot of things in there. It's a dangerous place to have withing walking distance.

Anyway, I bought bits of 5 different fabrics. Here's a sneak peak at the beginnings of my project. What am I making, do you think? (No fair cheating for those of you I've already told in person).
