12 Nov Back to normal?
|Sarah’s baby quilt|
It seems like it has been ages since we’ve chatted! Things have been a bit of a whirlwind. Of course, life is a bit crazy for me right before I go to Quilt Market. Then I was in Houston for six days. After I got back, I had a light day the next day and then dived right into making a baby quilt for my husband’s niece. And then attended her shower on the Sunday. I left Monday for a retreat with my Handwork group. During the retreat I did mostly personal sewing, which some of you might have seen on Instagram or Twitter. Packing orders took some time when I got back and then it was the weekend…the weekend right before my birthday, so lots of fun was in order 🙂 Phew!!!
Everything above was all good! Quilt Market is always a lot of fun and work; talking to lots of wonderful people who visit my booth and at all the other events after the end of the official Market day.
Market ended on Monday and my flight didn’t leave until late Tuesday afternoon, so I took the opportunity to visit the Rothko Chapel. I love Rothko’s work, but had totally forgotten the chapel was in Houston. Heather from Olive and Ollie/Heather Jones Studio Instagram’d her visit there so I jumped at the chance to go too. The quiet inside is amazing! The chapel is an octagon with 14 panels painted by Rothko as the only adornment. At first glance they all appear to be black. As you sit and look more, the shades of black begin to appear. Some have a purple tint, some a bit green and some a bit red – fascinating!
I’m hoping for a few quieter days this week to get my sewing room straightened out and catch up on some filing. What are you up to this week?
