Which, hey, I did. One pretty circles table runner coming up!
While my first week of classes was a little more chaotic than usual (technology down, books not in bookstore, a side trip to the dentist which had nothing to do with school but meant I felt even more sorry for myself), the sewing room was a retreat. It's one of the things I love about quilting. Sometimes I feel like I get to be a little kid again just when I need it: "Being an adult is hard. (Sniff). I'm going to go play with colors. (Sniff. Sniff)." And then I start to feel better. It isn't a cure all but I sure have been grateful over the years for having that sewing retreat.
Here's a photo of the whole table runner at home in the house. Odd angles. Too dark. What you can't see? Me squeezed into a tight corner I would have fit into much easier twenty years ago.
Which is why I also took a photo out on our deck. Much better light.
Another closer look just because, and to pause a moment to give thanks for those fabric designers who never let you down. All those Kaffe Fassett fabrics? Love 'em.
And because, apparently, I'm still going in circles, I've got a project for this week to work on that uses circles again. It's one of those projects that side-tracked me onto the internet, but that's okay. I've still got a start: stacks of circles. More to come.
