To Do List

I don't teach on Tuesdays but I still try to make them productive.  Here's my day's to-to list...
  • Make phonecalls (some long overdue)
  • Get serious about making progress on Amy's wedding quilt-- her 1 year anniversary is in 2 weeks..
  • Buy George a new soccer uniform.  We just registered him for the local "Under 4" club, he starts Saturday.
  • Play around with photos at http://www.play-crafts.com/blog/palette-builder/, like this:
And start to get some ideas for Laura & Katy's Travelin' Pic-Stitch Bloghop.  What? you haven't heard about this yet?  It's an EPP thing, so of course I'm on board.  There are still some spots left if you want to play along so hop on over and read more about it. I think I've picked my EPP pattern, but don't know what to do about fabrics yet. Must go through the 1500+ photos in my "pictures from phone" folder.  There are some real gems from our trip to Greece.. I haven't looked through them in detail or printed more than 5~6 out to frame stick on the fridge.  But now an entire season has passed and I think I'm ready to revisit those days again.   Ooh, here's a good one...
Can't beat that "Aegean Blue."  Looking at these 6 colors-- I think I have all of them in my stash already.  This may be easier than I thought.  And it sure does look like there may be a lot of hidden inspiration in those photos still...
 
Are you accomplishing anything important today?

  1. Hi Jessica! Your colours look beautiful! I'm so happy that Laura invited me, too to join their blog hop! Today I watched once again your great tutorial for EPP because I have never done that before. What a great change to push myself now. I'm quite sure that I need to have also Aegean Blue in my palette. I'm looking forward to see your pattern. x Teje

My Travel Quilt Story

**ETA-- Check out my completed Travel Quilt #3 here**

I don't know about you, but I check my blogger stats a couple times a day.  It's nice to see how readers find me, who has linked to me, and where they are.  In the last week though, there's been a gap, a hole.  I usually have at least a couple hits a week from readers in Japan, this week-- none.  Of course with such tragedy, I can't expect them to take time out (and use valuable electricity) to check in on my little ol' blog here, but still, the absence makes me worry about them even more.  I was thinking about how I can go back to  posting more about quilts but still satisfy my need to talk about Japan.. 

Victoria took this great photo of me at her retreat last weekend and I've wanted to write a post about it, and then it clicked, "Oh Yeah~" let's go back to the quilt that started me off on my EPP obsession..
Here we go.  Travel Quilt #1, aka "Ayane's Star" See, I was going to J…

Monday Morning Star Count, November 30, 2015

I have not even sewn one stitch this week.  I did manage to find my cutting table and mat, and it was nice to see them after what seemed like too long, but I didn't cut anything.  I didn't press anything.  I didn't do much other than ponder how I will organize my new space.

If you have stitched though, please tell us!

Home Ec Club, November meeting

I found this great felt leaf wreath craft that I had wanted to make in the first meeting of the new group of Home Ec Club members.  I was completely prepared to have a well paced session for 9 students.. but 13 signed up.  My supervisor said, "Oh, you're getting popular"  but I think the truth is that the word got out that they get to eat in Ms. Alex's club, hehe.

So, quick change of plans.  We made cranberry sauce AND the leaf wreaths.  With short bread cookies and graham crackers.. sounds perfectly November to me.
