Feeling sad that Joni is sick . . . . Her music has always been a big part of my life. There is no artist like her. I was lucky to see her in concert every time she came to Chicago. Sending up my prayers. . . . .
Did you know that blue is the most common color for bathrooms? Peaceful and serene.
Over the years we've had several blue rooms in our house (I used to have a blue kitchen) so it's no surprise that my bathroom is wallpapered in blue. Did you really think my bathroom would NOT be blue, LOL?? But there's some green in there too.
I love wallpaper. Even if it's not in style anymore. Hope it makes a comeback. I'll be ready.
"Born and raised on a farm in West Berkshire, Jo’s love of nature and the English Landscape is very evident in her charming, whimsical paintings." I love how the snow blankets the countryside, like a quilt.
I love this quilt. Blue makes some people sad but not me. I surround myself with it and I always feel better.
Can you see the Baptist Fan quilting design? It's an old fashioned favorite and was machine quilted by Dawn Larsen before my book Remembering Adelia came out. I bought myself a Baptist Fan stencil at a booth at a quilt show and I will try to use it to mark a small quilt someday for hand quilting.
Look closely - these are half-square triangles arranged to look like LeMoyne Stars. A very easy pattern.
