Saffron is back

I am happy to have my quilt, "Saffron in the Park," back from its travels. It is hanging amongst my holiday decor.

This is the quilt that was part of the Dinner at 8 Reflections exhibit at Houston Quilt Festival. It also appeared in the October- November issue of Quilting Arts Magazine. It was inspired by photos that a friend took of Christo's Gates in Central Park.

Gift from Peggy

Peggy drew my name in the annual holiday challenge for First Friday artists, and she made me this incredible collaged book, featuring five things I put on a list to signify me. I am still discovering wonderful details throughout. She even goes through the four seasons as the book progresses! Thanks, Peggy!

Stacy is holding the book I made for her. I thought I had taken more photos of all the pages, but looks like I didn't.

Purple dress

I took some nice photos of my granddaughter in her new purple dress. This is the one I made from the Oliver and S Playdate pattern. Sweet, huh?

More Colorado

We spent some quality time with Auntie Mar (aka Dave's sister) and Deb, who live in Colorado Springs. The prayer flags I made for Mar look great on the newly painted wall. 

We took a fun hike, and when it was over I tried to get a photo of Mar and her four dogs in the Mini Cooper, but the dogs were all hunkered down.

Deb made bracelets for us girls, and she helped Sammy make some necklaces.

Trip to Colorado Springs

I am posting photos that I took on our recent trip to Colorado Springs. We met our daughter and family there.  They had just been to Jack's brother's wedding in the Denver area. We did lots of fun stuff- bowling, hiking, swimming.

From pirate to flower girl

My granddaughter was a pirate for Halloween, on Pearl Street in Boulder, Colorado. The next day she was a flower girl at an uncle's wedding.

I asked for it

I asked my son for a photo of him with his girlfriend, Cia. I couldn't figure out how to save or upload it, but eureka, I finally did.

Flower girl

Sammy was a flower girl today.

My quilts at International Quilt Festival in Houston

I couldn't make it, but some of my friends were there. Two of my friends, Bonnie and Sherry, took these photos for me.

Happy diwali dinosaurs

Here are the dinosaurs I mentioned in yesterday's post. The photo didn't go thru then; hopefully it goes thru this time, because who knew that dinosaurs belonged at a Diwali celebration?!
