2 cats, 1 boxLR

Feb. 12, 2017LR






While the cats sleep (two cats- one box), the snow outside slowly melts. David hacked a path to the big tree, for bird feeding, and our BBQ is mostly freed from the snowdrift on our deck. The little birds are back, ┬ábut it’s not quite spring yet, is it?



My ToteLR







I first saw this pattern at Spring Quilt Market in Salt Lake City, Utah, in the spring of 2016. I got to buy this pattern at the Pacific International Quilt Festival, Santa Clara, California in October 2016. I made the small bag, reversible with Mochi dots in lime green. The outer fabric is a find from Bolt Fabric Boutique in Portland, Oregon. I love this bag! I’m making another bag- will report more when it’s finished.


Thread Web Shape LR







The current exhibit, “Fate, Destiny and Self Determination” from January 20 to April 16, 2017, at the San Jose Museum of Quilts and Textiles features the weavings of Line Dufour. The public is invited to submit a small shape, under 4″ square, made with nonperishable fiber materials. We are encouraged to think beyond the square and make a unique shape. The shapes are due by April 16th. Check out the link to find out more about the exhibit and to the shapes collection growing on a wall.

At the time I mailed in my shape, people from over 26 countries had already sent in shapes!

My shape is a collage put together with leftover stitched thread web constructions (already treated with clear acrylic spray). I’m so happy to be part of this project- only wish I could visit the museum. Actually, I’d love to be able to see the exhibits shown there—- it’s a really great place if you are ever in the Bay Area or near San Jose, California.
