Weekend Updates

So . . . do you remember these guys? Blocks I made umpteen posts ago and I didn't know where I was taking them? Well, we have been on a little trip, (where some of them jumped out of the vehicle and hitched a ride to parts unknown) and picked up a few new friends along the way. Now they look like . . .


. . . this! (See below.) I was just as surprised as anyone that my clearly blue and yellow quilt picked up some . . . pink. Who knew? I don't exactly consider the pink to be . . . riff-raff . . . so the blues and yellows are not, like, grounded or anything.

Is the trip over? Oh, dear no. I had a sudden burst of inspiration while visiting this blog and am considering a bit of hand embroidery. That may also be inspiration to be reserved for another project, so don't hold me to it. (You have probably figured out by now that you can't really hold me to much.) As they say in the "update" biz . . . stay tuned.


Oh, and by the by . . . here is an update on my favorite new scent, Dancing Waters from Bath and Body Works, that was mentioned in a prior blog. Oh, you guessed it . . . it's no one else's favorite scent but mine. I went there yesterday to purchase some travel-sized portions, only to have to make the nice clerk scour the store to find the shelf and a half that held what was left of them.

Never fear, I had a back-up plan. My second favorite new scent turned out to be Sea Island Cotton (a derivative of Cotton Blossom, but much more pleasant, if you ask me.) Turns out everybody likes Sea Island Cotton, and there was a plethora of items to choose from. This may all sound silly from a girl who is going to be at the ocean in in less than 3 days.
I just like to smell nice, I tell you.

I recently purchased my first Sea Island Cotton scented items (after reading about it on your blog), and I'm pretty much in love with the scent. I used to always buy Cotton Blossom bubble bath, but I'm pretty sure Sea Island Cotton is way better. And Quinten LOVES it too. He comments every time he washes his hands. So thank you for the tip.
And your blue/yellow/pink quilt is lovely.

Well, even though it sounds more like a Carolinas or Gulf Coast locale rather than your prefered Pacific Coast venues, I think Sea Island is more appropriate for you anyway. Unless Dancing Waters was was designed as the scent for women with teaspoon-sized bladders, in which case...

I think the introduction of pink into the quilt is fine as long as you won't be crushed if some high brow quilt cop comes along and says, "That quilt is wearing pink and blue and yellow together."

I never hold you to a pattern, maybe because I think it's liberating, what with me being so heavily into routine, but one thing I won't do is change the pattern of holding you.

When I was in elementary school I thought pink and red were taboo together also! But now that I have worked with quilting fabrics so much, I also love the combo together. In fact, one of the new reproduction lines out is pink and red, and I was sorely tempted to indulge!

By the way, I find Turkey Feather (the blog) inspiring too!
