Happy 4th of July!! (and a long-overdue WIP Wed)
Happy 4th of July
to all my U.S.
No fireworks here this year, and the base activities were all canceled - mountains are closed for picnicking, since they're still fighting the remnants of the fire. But we'll be whooping it up together and trying out some bison burgers. The apartment allows gas grills on the balconies, so Scott'll enjoy a little manly shopping time.
I *love* this shot - Marissa and I got to see this spectacular atmospheric effect when we were visiting NYC on her 2011 spring break. Isn't it amazing? The cross at her feet was added by the camera. so cool. couldn't have done that on purpose if I tried.
Woohoo! This is the first time in months that I've accomplished quilt work on anything outside of my Baby Janes and had something for WIP Wednesday! :D I'm quite limited on project choices while in this interrim apartment, as most of my fabric and quilt projects are in storage until we can buy a house. But this week I finished all 96 of these suckers for my Coral Encounter quilt. 96!
So far two of the square blocks are put together. It's a fairly intricate process. 7 more to go, then the 10 border pieces can have their arcs inset and be added to the center. I'm excited. :)
Thanks so much to Lee at Freshly Pieced for hosting WIP Wednesdays. It's a really terrific motivator and meeting place! :D
