I have been taking a little hiatus for the last week and a half- good friend houseguests [6 of them] turned into some house cleaning projects, turned into a summer cold…
Some Serious Patchwork
When I am working on quilt projects, I usually need to try to stay within the latest fabric collection or mix the colors of the current line and the one I am about to debut at the next quilt Market. More often than not, I design quilt patterns that incorporate only the most recent fabric collections. But something has hit me this summer and I have started working on several patterns that mix all my favorite pieces from the last 4 or 5 lines. I’m loving the results. They feel Fresh Vintage and gypsy bohemian all at the same time. I will have some more pics tomorrow.
On the “Pixie” subject of my title… I hope you will all go over here and see the beautiful pictures she took of a few of my fabrics. There is something so nostalgic and wonderfully charming about the way she takes pictures. I am usually re-inspired by my fabrics all over again after I’ve seen what she did with them.
Yummies at the Ferry
While our guests were in town we took the opportunity to do some great touristing activities around the Bay Ares. By far my favorite outing was to the Ferry Building Marketplace in San Francisco. A couple of years ago it was refurbished and has become a gourmet center with an array of absoulutely wonderful little shops and restuaruants. It is a feast for the eys, nose and mouth. Take a look at just a few of the goodies we saw….
