Apparently I misunderstood the weather forecast on Monday or the weather guys didn't see the break in the cloud cover coming. The sun shone all day yesterday. Yippee! Of course it's back to light gray again today. But it's not raining. I'll take every little blessing I can get!
Since you've been so patient I have photographed a little quilt I made in 1994, shortly after we moved up here from Texas. It's possible that this is the first completely intuitive quilt I ever made. I was suffering from homesickness at the time of its' construction, therefore the name "Blue Monday."
It measures 14" x 16.5". There are scraps from at least one maternity dress I'd made for myself in it. My favorite element is the pink button featuring the mother mouse and her baby. They remind me of Beatrix Potter's drawings (for all I know it could be a licensed image from one of her books).
We read several of Beatrix's books to our children when they were little. The tales of Jemima Puddle-Duck and Mrs. Tiggy-Winkle were a couple of our favorites. Now the movie "Miss Potter" is one of my favorite things to watch on a quiet Sunday afternoon.
Okay. I have two more challenges to work on. Onward!
