Good morning from a beautiful morning in Calgary,
It is the beginning of October in the city; the leaves are changing color, turning the city into a golden spectacle. At home, the trees have gone from a deep red to gold to oranges, ,and all the colors in between.
It is a lovely day today, and I sit here in my studio looking out the window and see the sky is blue, no clouds in sight. So, I will work some and then go and mow the lawn for the last time this summer. On Tuesday they are coming to winterize the sprinkler system, a sure sign that fall is coming.
But .. in the meantime, I am planning on enjoying the nice weather. I will go sit in the sun and listen to the birds, go for a walk and take my camera to capture some of the colors and textures around.
I have been working nice and steady these past few weeks on two new projects, which I am happy to say are finished, bound and sent on their way to Quilting Arts Magazine for a new article that will appear on the December/January issue – their 10th Anniversary Issue. I am very excited about it. I hope you will be too. I can’t tell you any more about it, you’ll just have to wait to read the magazine. It was so close to the deadline when I finished the quilts that I didn’t even photograph them!
On another note, the new issue of Quilting Arts Magazine (October/November) is out. Look at page 53 and you’ll see a photo of my art quilt “Sopa Rosita”, a finalist in the Quilting Arts Calendar Challenge 2011 which received a Judges’ Choice mention.
And now, I’ll leave you with one of my favorite quotes from Robert Fulgum:
“Be aware of wonder, live a balanced life, learn some, and think some, and draw and paint and sew and sing and dance and play and work every day some”.
I love reading comments, so feel free to send some my way. And … once again, thanks for reading.
Until I blog again …
