recent creative pursuits

I made this little quilt shop (see the tiny "quilts" in the windows?) for the president's quilt for my guild.

I went to a retreat recently at Casa de Maria in Montecito, with some creative people. I didn't take many photos, but I found these dyed fabrics hanging on the line irresistible.

Here I'm making a necklace with tiny felt squares. The baby quilt I'm working on is underneath - I should call this photo "Quilt Interrupted."

We walked up to the San Ysidro Inn one evening and marveled at the genuine Tiffany windows in the lobby.

My son gave this colorful wallhanging to me on Mother's Day. I can't decide whether it's an owl or a hedge hog.

Those Tiffany windows are exquisite! That lovely periwinkle color of glass is so yummy! FWIW: Owl. Shape of beak. It's so darling! How big is it?

It's about 18" diameter. I thought owl, too, except that it's so round! Like a hedgehog. Maybe it's a little baby owl. ;-)

Loved looking at your photos, Cindy! Beautiful.
