Progress on the painting from the previous post.

Did I ever tell you I love patchwork? Crazy quilts, the quilts of Gee's Bend., Denise Schmidt quilts. I don't quilt. I hope to learn one day. For now I play with paper quilts.

Happy Memorial Day to all who celebrate. We are going strawberry picking and to a picnic. I am heading to a flea market. We are eating lots of watermelon, making fresh lemonade and wearing flip flops. I love this unofficial start to summer!

what a great start to Summer that sounds like! It's a bit intermittent here.

I too love quilts and recently went to the quilt exhibition at the V&A in London. I particularly liked the quilts of Natasha Kerr.

Happy making. (and summer :)

flip flop weather has a special place in my heart. I love quilts, too, and vow to someday learn how to make them. I had to opportunity to go see the quilts of gees bend a few years back. They are even more gorgeous in person, as you can see all the stitching and irregularities that make them so special.
