The Epistolarians

A dear friend and I are writing an improvisational epistolary romance novel* and blogging it at  Take a look and tell me what you think!

Here, you see my muse and writing companion.  

*That means a make-it-up-as-we-go novel about finding true love, that is conducted entirely through letters.

Quilt Square

A friend of mine is pregnant, and her mother asked we all make a 12x12 quilt square.  She will put them all together into a baby blanket, and next month at the Blessingway, we'll bless it as well as mom and baby.  Last weekend I had some ladies over and threw open my stash of fabric, and we all made or started quilt squares.  I just dropped mine off with her today.  As you can see, its a lotus, with a music heart hovering overhead.  I'm pretty pleased with it, though I need to practice a bit more on applique.  The zigzagging made little gathers in the fabric...

In other news, it is officially summer time, despite the snow still on the ground.
In many places the snow is melted and we see the lovely ugliness of winter's accumulation of dirt and gravel.  The pussywillows are budding.  And last night, at 10:16 pm, I took this photo out the kitchen window:

That much light at 10 pm means summertime to me!
