Another fortnight, another last minute mad dash to figure out my four categories. This week our letter is:
The topics are: Sky, Purple, City and Lap Quilt
I’ve been following the adventures of Canada’s favourite spaceman: Chris Hadfield. Chris is currently the Commander of the International Space Station, and he’s doing more than anyone else to demystify and popularize the goings on up there. He’s using social media a lot while he’s there, and sending back lots on Facebook and YouTube. I’ve seen videos of how you sleep in zero gravity, how you get a haircut, and how to brush your teeth. Even a science experiment suggested by a Canadian student about what happens when you squeeze a soaking wet facecloth in zero G! (you’d be surprised what does happen).
I have a personal connection with Chris – he’s a musician and songwriter too, and he’s been working with my producer, Paul Mills, to record a bunch of songs FROM SPACE! It’s going very well, I hear.
Chris is taking some amazing pictures from space, and here’s one that he took of the rising moon – otherwise known as Luna.
I’ve already taken a sneak peek at Cinzia’s post this week, and she chose the city London. As in England. I have been there too, but actually I grew up in London Ontario. Not quite the same cachet that the other one has, but it’s where I’m from, so this is the one I chose.
And yes, the Thames River runs through this one, too. AND Stratford upon Avon is not far away!
I have lavender growing in my yard. This time of year, it’s not very purple, but it will be. Here’s what lavender looks like in the spring in Victoria BC.
Just beside the first shoots of lavender are proper purple flowers:
This is one I made with my Mock Mola Applique technique. It’s a combination of two Labyrinths, the top is Caerdroia Labyrinth, and the bottom is a Roman one.
That’s all for now. In two weeks, I’ll see you with Vs: Colour, Weather, Pointy and Vibrant Quilts!!!
To see some of the other Scatterdayers, there’s a list of all of us on Cinzia’s blog.
