Wow - I just realized that I haven't posted anything since I got back last Sunday. I've been busy working on the Strip Tube blocks. I've only got fourteen more to make and I'll have them all done - enough for a queen sized quilt. I laid them out on the floor of the sewing room just to see how they're looking together - the turquoise is awfully bright, but I think it works. I've also been working on my sewing room - finished painting the walls a nice light greyish aqua. I was very worried about it coming out a seafoam green or being too aqua - I'm trying to keep it light and airy with beach colors (sandy tans, whites, blues - like my blog colors). The baseboards and trim still need to be painted as they haven't been done in about seven years, but I'm saving that for another weekend when I've got plenty of time. I'm happy with the way it's coming along. I'm also bringing a new person into the quilting fold (no pun intended). A young woman at work was looking at one of the baby quilts I made and asked me if I'd teach her. I would never turn down the opportunity to give someone the quilting bug, so we've been working on a warm wishes quilt for her daughter. This woman is a natural - her cutting and sewing are very precise and she's very artistic, so I have a feeling that this will be a lifelong hobby for her. I hope everyone's having a wonderful Saturday.
