Friday already; my how times does fly.

This week has gone by so fast, I can hardly believe it is Friday already. I am working on a second quilt and I am having fun creating. You know you are having fun when you have to tell yourself to go to bed at 2 in the morning and six hours later when the eyes open you are ready to get back at it even before that first cup of coffee. Which is what I did this morning. I am eating breakfast as I sit here now. Multi-tasking.

The newest quilt is a very simple motif. I did this on purpose so that I could put more thought into the colors I wanted to use. The repeat pattern and motif lends itself to stripped piecing which makes the piecing and assembly fast

I have one other idea that I want to explore while here this trip if I have time.
I plan to go back to Louisville with these ideas and begin working in a series with them to see how far I can push the three concepts hopefully into some interesting original work. I will reserve judgement on what I am working on now until I get back on either Sunday or Monday.

I will put images of the first two on the blog as soon as I can

They are predicting rain on Saturday and Sunday and I dislike driving in the rain for long distances so I will try to wait the rain out. However I can not push the waiting too far. I need to be back no later than Wednesday I have a full six days planned out with my friend Marti. We will be dyeing fabric.

I really wish I could download photo images into this blog from here because there are rose bushes growing all over the city and they are in bloom, fragrant and just beautiful. I'll take a few pictures of them for you to see. I love roses. But then again I love all flowers.

There is a new game out that John wanted for his Play station(?) so as a belated birthday present we went off to Best Buy to get it and of course while I was in the store with him I brought an Ipod. Back at Lyn's I put my current favorite cds into it and it is GREAT. Of course I did this without any trouble at all, thanks to John.

AND I AM LISTENING NOW as I blog. Stopping on occasions to sing or get up and boogie. It's a good thing no one is home to see me when I break out into full dance mode or hear me singing at full volume. The laughter would be heard round the world. God passed me over when it came to giving me a talent for singing and dancing but I am living proof of this advise for life. "Sing like no one's listening, dance like no one's watching." YOU DO THE SAME.

I love that advice - I wonder if I could take it?
