Right before dawn rains.

What have you been seeing?
Exciting things have been happening and that energy spawned a new quilt design. Here is sample number one.
The idea for this quilt top happened after I’d cut out triangles from fat quarters, sewed those in to hexagons, and looked at the results. The results are a blend of the past and the present. While I was sewing it up my grandma filtered through my thoughts, and this is a quilt inspired by her.
Cut out triangles for sample quilt top two.
My supervisor stopped in to make sure all arranging was up to snuff.
Problem solving looks classic here.
What have you been making?
Making strips was easy and relaxing with the 1/2″ Clover Bias Tape Maker. There are a lot of cardboard boxes in the house right now and the bottom of one became the weaving surface. After weaving for awhile, my thumb and forefinger became a bit tender, prompting me to take a break.
What new activity are you trying?
Rain clouds stopped by last week allowing us to trek midday with the pups to Red Rock Canyon. It’s a stunning landscape with much for the eye to catch, making me itch for extra time out there to hike, think and imagine.
I sat down immediately when home and started stitching this idea. The coloring stitches aren’t finished yet, but the piece is pleasing to the eye already.
Back stitch and straight stitch are being employed here. The thread is DMC.
The photography professor I studied with encouraged shooting around 7 AM & PM for interesting lighting. Today I caught shadows.
How was your weekend? What did you make?
