like a slowly moving gray velvet curtain, being drawn across the stage. A one act play, no scenery changes....a gray and gloomy, find-me-some-color kind of day. Not the best of days, but not the worse, either. It was a day with promises to keep and miles to go before I sleep. Mid afternoon found me driving the river road, south from my little valley to another, to see my M.D. The trees stark and shaded black against what is left of the snowy landscape. No sun to cast long shadows today. The meandering little Eau Galle River, barely 8 feet across ,has become a roaring tyrant, since yesterday. Northern snow melt, of the past few days, has sent huge amounts of water southward in WI and MN. And probably other states near us , like North Dakota. A river that runs through New Ulm, MN rose 10 feet in 2 hours yesterday, putting it above 'flood' stage.
It's par for the course this time of year.
And so today I'll show you a bit of color, not much, but some. Like one lonely daffodil, that spot of yellow....*VBS* It's a little quilt I made a few years back. It's based on one I saw in Little Quilts All Through The House. I hand quilted this one. The second picture is one of my new books from Hamilton Books, and altho there are no quilts in there that I couldn't make without the book, it's fun to see the pictures and how they 'staged' the doll quilts..*VBS* If you haven't check out Hamilton Book at http://hamiltonbook.com/hamiltonbook.storefront
please give it a look-see. This particular book is a $22.95 book, and I bought it,
new, for $6.95. Lots of bargains to be had there, and the shipping is reasonable...very reasonable.
After looking through the book, I think I may make the all triangle pair one that is under the doll in the cradle.
I'm going to do some kind of amending on that outer border of the quilt I asked you about yesterday, and then will baste it for a quick quilt. About the curved piece pattern, I'll look for what information I have about it and email you..*VBS* Hope everyone had some sunshine today, it sure wasn't in my corner of the world.
