Today is a new day and such a nicer day it is! Please come in to see some pieces of our day....
*a happy stack of flying geese pieces, cut last night with that great little ruler.
*Aria's second scarf-in-progress beside last winter's "Little Forest of JOY" pillow. Yes, she's knitting! She's "throwing" the yarn, English style, as that's what worked best for her. And boy is she hooked! Susan the cat is already sporting a new "coat".
*a string of flying geese!
*one happy helper (who is most contrite for the aforementioned mess, which to answer your question, Maureen, was too disgusting to disclose. If you have children, think of that mess. That very worse one. I'm sure this one was comparable).
*sweet little Spot
*Geese on the wall! You know you should have a design wall when...
There used to be a painting hanging here, as this is our dining room (sewing room! ahem), but I took it down to photograph Retro Flowers no. 1. I'm leaving it down to slowly acclimate Brandon to the fact that I claim this wall as well. Yes, the whole wall please! It's hard to be a quilt-hater in a house like this. Poor husband.
*approximately one curtain's worth of geese. I plan to intersperse the rows with 3" wide strips of Alexander Henry's Heath in chocolate, so...
*new stashings from Pink Castle Fabrics. From left: Ta dot in Teal, Punctuation Tudor Stripe in black (run, run and get some of this stripe! I was so glad to find it again as I used up every little bit I'd had. It's the perfect punch of black without being solid), Heath in Tomato Red, Heath in Metal Pink, and lots of Heath in Chocolate.
*oh, here's some more! Celery Ta Dot in flannel from Whipstitch for a quilt backing and Kona snow against Kona bone. Kona bone (on top) is a milky white that I like to pair with brown and other warm tones. It's the solid "white" shown in my flying geese.
*ah, yes, and these. This stack was a cyber Monday purchase from The Intrepid Thread. I was hunting down flower-free aquas and oranges for Liam's flying geese. From left that's Dazzle Basketweave in aqua, Dazzle Basketweave in tan, Hugs & Kisses in Scotch and the acorn print from Khristian A. Howell's new collection The Woodlands.
Ok, now I'm off to make cookies! Do enjoy your weekend, K? I plan to finish my last Christmas gift and put that quilt back on my Meet the Gang quilt. Crossing fingers for all of us!
