I’m a Winner! Plus more catching up…

Stephanie, found at spontaneousthreads on Instagram and Flickr, frequently runs random prize drawings. A friend in Santa Fe entered for the two of us, and we each won a prize! This is the adorable package I got in the mail, with an invitation to make a little something. Woo Hoo!

Cooper the Cat loves bowls, boxes, and anything he can get his body into. Check out the meme “If It Fits, I Sits” for more adorable cat photos.








I made another Octagon Bag, for a friend, for Christmas 2016. I did a few things my way, such as mitering the corners for less bulk. I love this pattern (see previous post).

I spent about 10 days in Salem recently. While there, my sister-in-law Barbara and I worked on a quilt for her daughter, whose name starts with — E— what else? Ironing 14 yards of fabric (bolt sale price!) then started assembling Barbara’s E blocks. It’s huge: about 104″ by 104″ right now. The fully basted quilt (spray basting plus water soluble thread) is home with me, waiting to be quilted. This time I mean it- no more monster sized quilts!

I popped up to Portland from Salem to visit Luke & Colleen. We went to Hippo Hardware, a promised wonderland of parts for old houses. Nooks, crannies, half floors, full floors, scary steep stairs up and down, we explored it all. Outside, I took this photo.

The next day I went to BOLT Fabric Boutique on NE Alberta street with friend Judith. After fabric snooping and shopping, we crossed the street to have a late lunch at Bollywood Theater. Here is our chai tea, waiting for our order of sweet/sour/spicy cauliflower and chicken curry with mini side dishes.
