A Weekly Offering of This n That

Rainy Day is my alter ego. She is the little angel that sits on one shoulder and whispers in my ear to forgo that 6" piece of triple chocolate fudge with the four scoops of ice cream on it; she is also the little devil who sits on my other shoulder and convinces me that I can eat just one bite of each and be satisfied, and then laughs with such great abandon when in fact, I eat the whole thing, she falls off my shoulder. Mostly, Rainy Day helps me see the humor in living and, mostly, she encourages me down the right path. Not necessarily the straight and narrow one (how fun is that?) but the path that offers the most adventure and fun.

Scraps Dancing

Primary Convergence
This is my Ricky Tims quilt. It is Project One of four projects in the book, and I will make each one before I branch out too far on my own. I want to quilt it using concentric circles, starting from the upper left corner. 
Scrap Dance

Sewing circles takes practice, so I made a mini quilt from the scraps of this one, and call it Scrap Dance. It will probably be Scrap Dance I as I make others both to play with color and placement, and to practice the circle quilting. ;-)

Unfortunately, I can't get the color quite right. The wall is yellow, not orange, as is the one scrap. But you get the idea.

I think I can get into making these mini-quilts. True, they won't do much for keeping me warm on a cold winter's night, but that's why I have a small dog and a cat—and lots of bigger quilts.
