Quite a while back, on a visit to my daughter, I noticed this wonderful old chair next door, just sitting there by itself - Picture time! I love old, vintage-y things and thought this might make a good image for a small quilt.

I'm finishing up old pieces - samples I made years ago. This sample was done for a book I wrote on fabric marbling; I've always liked it but had no use for it as it was, I thought quilting would make it pop and perhaps turn it into a pillow or small wallhanging.
I used stretcher bars to frame the piece.

A couple of weeks ago, my daughter took myself and her mother in law - Jan to a tea at the St. Regis Hotel in Atlanta, GA. It was a belated Mother's day gift as unbeknownst to my daughter, that date is booked a year in advance. This was almost better as it was so relaxing, we had our choice of tables and such a lovely treat.
- like something from a movie.
All in all, a great day, spent with people I love, great goodies to munch on, champagne and tea and even an unexpected source for imagery for my quilts - wow, doesn't get any better!

Morning walks can be a great source of inspiration for me. One of the neighborhoods I walk in, is an older community - lots of trees, bordering on forests. The houses are probably quite dark inside as a result, but the feeling outside walking is wonderful. I think my love of forests and woods is right up there next to trees.
