Just Beautiful!

The other day I heard a radio DJ comment on the colors of the trees here in the Great Lakes area.  He said that he thinks they are prettier this year than they've been in a long time. 
The trees are starting to turn here in my area and I would agree with him.  I'll be driving along and come upon a group of trees whose color just takes my breath away!  Wish I could capture these images on film so I could remember them forever. 
Looking for  color ideas for your next quilt?  Just take a drive (and remember your camera).

Pink Houses Project Update

A week ago I said good-bye to the last of my Little Pink Houses quilts.  It was a bit sad to do so because that project had been part of my life for almost a year.  But it  also made me happy because I knew that the project was done for a good cause. 
The quilts were delivered in time to be part of another fundraiser at Henry Ford Macomb Hospital.  I haven't yet heard how much $$ they helped raise for the low cost/no cost mammogram program at the hospital.  Hopefully the quilts got the intended message across and sold well. 
This being Breast Cancer Awareness month, are you up to date on your mammograms?  Hope so!  Cure rate is great when caught early!

Don't know how they do it!

A couple of weeks ago I made up my mind that I would blog more see how far I got with that!  I don't know how people can come up with something to say each and every day on their blogs!!!  I feel like I've been "brain dead!"
I have also decided that my sewing room is meant to be in a constant state of disarray because I constantly have several projects going at one time, talks and workshops to plan for, and new ideas to pull fabrics for.  That's just the way I work.
I did spend one long evening in my sewing room sorting fabrics and putting them away, sorting thread and putting it away, filing a few papers and putting books on the bookshelf.  But things won't stay this way for long, and I'm no longer going to feel guilty about it!
