this is a lovely and immaculately sewn quilt given to me today by my boss Beckie. the work, effort and time put into it astonishes me and i am touched beyond belief. my 'sad week' is immensely better now that i have a hug i can wrap around me! i'm in awe.

i wanted an apron, but didn't want to leave to get a pattern (!) so i made this up instead. it was a little blocky, so i added the center pleat and that made a big difference. i added two buttonholes on each side so as to cinch the waist but what a pain to try to thread them through, so oh well. the main fabric is from the wonderful denyse schmidt's katy jump rope, the others i can't remember except the circle pattern came from the local thrift shop. i think it's very cheery, though i realized two things not so cheery: i need to lose some weight AND clean my mirrors!

thanks to all my friends who came by to see me & my bags at Fiesta on Camp Pendleton last friday! somehow i manage to meet the nicest people. i was so busy that i didn't get to visit any of the other booths...next time, i think i'll shanghai some friends to help me out! it was such a lovely day--sunny, bright, crisp. no complaints about southern california weather lately!
