Here I am at the computer while my husband watches football and reads a book. He is not really immersed in football, but he doesn't want to miss the good parts, so he reads until he hears the crowd cheer, then he looks up to see what happened. Meanwhile, the TV with the DVR and all my programs are held hostage. Last night I woke up at 3:00AM and came down and watched Castle. Am I really that desperate? No, I just couldn't go back to sleep for a while.
Castle, by the way, has a great cast, and my favorite is Susan Sullivan. I couldn't place her at first with the red hair, but she is sensational in this role. You may remember her from Dharma and Greg a few years ago, plus a million other things.This role is great for her, as was the Dharma and Greg roll. Plus she looks fabulous!
So back to quilts, here is what I am teaching at the shop this session. Feathered Friends is a 21" table topper. The center is fairly plain, waiting for a centerpiece. As you can see, it is surrounded by pretty birds. I have to say it was inspired by Corry at Dutch Blue who seems to always have pretty birds mingling with the darling things she creates. Please check out her blog. You will love it!
This is a quilt that I made a few years ago and it was a great success as a class, so I thought I would try it again. The classic four-patch on point! I took this quilt off the wall at my son's house when we were there at Christmas with a promise of sending him a replacement while I borrow this back. Yesterday he sent me a photo of a bare wall. He is so impatient!
This final quilt I did not make. Mary Brandt of St. Michael, MN made it for Becky and Travis, pictured above. Becky is our granddaughter--both of us! And we are both quilters. Isn't that great! So the kids got two beautiful quilts from their grandmothers when they got married in October 2009. Aren't they adorable!
That's all for now. I gotta go see if the football game is over and I can catch up on my programs and do some hand stitching.
