Happy Crafturday!

Deciding on a layout for those big blocks using little square proxies. All are handdyed by me with indigo, some overdyed on prints.

Uh oh, somebody shrank my scissors.

Rivers attached! Stained glass view is a worthy prize. Already moved to the next languishing WIP. Started this one back in 2010...hope to finish by the end of this year. 😬✂️🤞🏼

Showing my backside for the cheeky monkeys. Happy Crafturday!

Rivering...

Next! This stylized town was pieced in 2014-15. Adding the bordering rivers next with shot cottons and indigos. Have a great weekend!

Scrappy is scrappy, apparently. So far it seems my new expansion (in the foreground) blends just fine with the original 2011 patchwork. Just two long seams remain and it'll finish at 71x68".

Scrappin'. I'm also shredding old orphan blocks and repurposing into this.

Scrappy! And I think I can sew smaller. 😉

New batch of popsicles. Super strong coffee (2 cups)--stronger than you think--plus sweetened condensed milk (2/3 cup). A very cold brew. 😉☕️

Two rather old projects that I've decided I must finish before starting a new one. Let's see how disciplined I can be. I'm easily distracted by shiny things.

Stitching in the airport.

Making dime bags of felted letters. Cutting felt with sharp scissors is incredibly soothing. ✂️

Up above Atlanta.

Happy Fourth, wherever you are!

I think this is the first time I've reproduced my own quilt. The original was auctioned off for Planned Parenthood in 2011 but I still get exhibition requests. It just needs a sleeve and then has two long term stops already scheduled.

As in, my sweet...

Oh, and I got me a hog, a hen, and a swirl--in terra cotta tile form.

Spent yesterday with @quiltyhabit in the cluttered but clever mind of Henry Mercer at his Fonthill Castle, his Moravian Tileworks, and his 7-floor "museum." (You can tell the tiles were my faves.) There was a small show of quilts of Mary Schafer, who inspired Gwen Marston. There are two vintage quilts (one finished by Mary) in the photos here. The final photo in this is a collaboration of Mary, Gwen and @joethequilter.

Yes, you are... 😉

Peeking in my stash of solid cotton. If you know me, then you understand that there aren't enough colors. 😜

Okay. Bake one lemon poppyseed pound cake or just buy two lemon poppyseed muffins. Crumble into six paper cups. Then thinly slice a lemon and discard seeds. Blend slices with juice of four more lemons, one 14oz can of sweetened condensed milk, 1/2 cup whole milk, and 1/2 cup heavy cream. Pour over crumbled cake, put sticks in, and then freeze until solid. Enjoy for breakfast. This is some intensive lemon. 🍋 (Inspired by @ladyandpups)

Summer is for feeding on books, preferably of the non-math flavor like Grit, Hunger, and Lincoln in the Bardo. Mostly I read on my iPad or use audiobooks, though there are stacks everywhere also awaiting me.

Quilting on the bias warped the crap out of it. So I'm wet blocking into submission. An aggressive Crafturday. How are you?

Blend 2 med ripe avocados, two med ripe bananas, 1/2 cup milk (any kind), honey to taste. Made 6 in my molds. A refreshing breakfast! And now I must obsess about popsicle/paleta recipes!
