"Art does not reproduce the visible, it makes things visible in the first place."

I finally finished the 10 pillowcases I was making for the Operation Pillowcase project.  They are so easy and came out really well...but I did procrastinate and took longer than I should have...


An incredibly beautiful day here today...sunny, a few clouds, and crisp, cool air...lovely.  My favorite time of year here in So CA. 

I've been hand quilting on my Jane Stickle quilt during the Olympics.  Actually, I haven't watched too much of the Olympics, to be honest...but I have been using it as a sort of time frame for working on the quilt.  I will see how far ahead I am at closing ceremonies.  I got the idea from various bloggers who are doing the Olympic activities either in quilting or at Ravelry or wherever their fiber interests lie.  A good idea; it was a catalyst for me and I have gotten several blocks done.  Hey, whatever works, right...? =-)

Oh, and I cleaned off the top of a dresser in my sewing/crap room the other day...I still can hardly walk in there but it makes me smile when I gingerly make my way around/through the piles to whatever it is I'm after in there.  Perhaps if I keep it cleared off and I see it often enough it will inspire me to clean off yet another surface...haha...baby steps, people...=-)

Later, dudes...

Well, I decided to call it as I see it instead of pussy footing around it! =-)
