Today’s challenge: Pantry, Frightening, Flower and Exciting Equipment
First of all – sorry everyone for missing the last one – I had it almost ready to go, but ran out of time to find the pictures. I’ve been writing lots and lots of patterns prior to heading out on tour, so I’m ahead of the Block of the Month until next July. I finished the last pattern today (HURRAY!), so I can get back to normal life….
So, here we go this time.
PANTRY: What’s in my pantry?
I was hoping for some EAGLE brand anything. Nope.
Last year my friend Susan Purney-Mark went to volunteer in Haiti. To help raise funds for the orphanage, she brought back a lot of coffee and vanilla from there to sell. I love the ESSENCE of Vanilla!
I have been working for the last year on a series of quilts that are all destined to be a part of my very first Gallery show. I have challenged two friends – one a painter, one a potter – to join me. We are all planning to create 10 pieces on the theme of Refractions. Recently we’ve confirmed the gallery for the last couple of weeks of February here in Victoria. It will be at Cedar Hill Arts Centre.
And all of a sudden, it’s REAL, and it’s Frightening.
So: my scary E is for EXHIBIT
(Sorry this is so small – you’ll just have to come to the show from February 19 to March 5)
I don’t have a lot of flowers (except for struggling roses – we didn’t get much rain this year) at home. Several years ago we redid the front and back yards so that they would a) have no grass and b) take care of themselves. Well, it worked for the front yard anyway….. Every year, I’m happy when the deer don’t munch the first shoots of this flower, so I get to see it now. Here it is: my ECHINACEA PURPURA!
Okay, this is the “quilty” one. Exciting? Well, Essential, anyway. Quilters live for their rulers. I present: EDGES!
Bit of a stretch, perhaps? Oh well…. I didn’t have any ELASTIC! (and that’s REALLY not exciting!)
See you next time!
