|A view of Honolulu from the high peaks|
Just love to have a full day at home and especially after being away, a chance to catch up. I only left the house to get the paper, shovel the driveway and get the mail. In between I worked my way through my list but slowly. I thought I would sew but just didn't get to it.
I can't remember if I ever shared this before but I live on the sunny side of our street. It was so helpful today after I cleared the snow, the sun did the rest. Right now my driveway and sidewalk are dry as a bone. I love it.
I don't have my own sewing to share but I do have some show and tell. The first picture is one of the pillow covers that I bought. It is a traditional pattern. I just love the pattern and the echo stitching. When I was talking to the quilt teacher about patterns she was telling me that they use the trees, leaves and flowers around them. When I told her I lived in Pennsylvania, she said that we have beautiful foliage here and I should use that. Hmmmm.
These are a few of the books that I bought. I tried to find a few that gave instruction and a few that are just thoughtful examinations of the tradition. I found the pineapple pattern at the fabric shop. Looks like an interesting pattern to make. Wonder how long it will take me to make that one?!!
