Monday, Monday....

Sunday, Sunday...I was sewing. I got up early, caught the 10am meeting over in Blowing Rock and then after making a quick stop for Sunday Burgers to share with Maya, beat a path for home.

Got back into my jammies and spent the whole day in my studio!
Such luxury to have the time, the desire, and the ability to do what I enjoy ~~
I know I'm blessed!

Got up today and it's crappy, drizzly, rainy, chilly, gray and did I mention crappy? Uh huh...that's it.

Back into the studio and for every seam I sewed, I think I ripped out another. Was not in the zone today, but did get this top finished and I love it.

My high school art teacher would have complained loudly that it is too "busy". Yep, it is busy.

But it exactly captures what I love about Mexico. No matter how much we (outsiders/americans) try to pigeon-hole another culture (in this case, Mexico) and make it fit neatly in some box ~ it is just plain loud and busy and colorful and joyous, and vibrant and alive and did I say colorful? Uh huh...that's it!

So now I have 2 is in the mail to the long arm quilter and this one will go next. I plan to get the 3rd one done to send along with it. Then it's on to a quilt for my niece and one for my nephew before I tackle the king size quilt for "slappy the bait shop guy".

I'm running to Asheville tomorrow and will be gone for the day. Talk to you layta.

I adore the quilt pictured here on this blog! Great work for something that we would all love to see closer up!
