i want to be sedated

Shopping at the Jewel this morning, over the music system played the Ramones.
In 1978, two things never entered my mind--that one day I would be a middle aged woman shopping for groceries, and that I want to be Sedated would enter the Musak playlist.

nothing to do and nowhere to go...

Today is my birthday.
The photograph is me at age three with my sewing cards--I loved them.

Amidst the sadness, I am hoping to score some reduced price jerseys for Christmas presents....

soft summer quilt

Made with a block I saw my friend Diana Burrows use--she is making hers from a wonderful collection of indigo Dutch Wax Batiks. I'm using light plaid pieces that are are 2 1/2 inches by 3 inches, with the sashing cut 1 inch by 5 1/2 inches. The sashing goes on just two sides and turns the block into a 5 inch finished square.
I used a medium green Kona Cotton solid. If I were to make it again, I think I would choose a persimmon color to stand out more against the light plaids. There is a soft summer look to this top.
