Happy Thanksgiving Eve

I feel like my blog has been low on art & fiber content, so today I’m posting several pieces by friends. Above are some fused glass tiles that my dear friend Mindy made for me. Aren’t they wonderful?

Below are all silk pieces batiked my my friend Kate. Kate had never tried batik before, & she loved it.

The ties are for her lawyer husband Brook.

The B below is for Boston. Brook, & daughter Hanna’s favorite ball team.

These last few pictures are of Kate’s quilt, on my machine. Kate pieced it for Hanna, & I’m quilting it for her. It seems only yesterday I was making a baby quilt for Hanna, & now she is in High school. She is 6 foot tall, & beautiful.

The back of the quilt is Minkie-dot fabric. Very plush & soft. I was a little worried about how it might stretch on the frame, but so far, so good. I have decided to break up the design a little. Not do all continuous lines, side to side. That way, I figure I’ll have less chance of getting peats in the back. The area I have showing below, was just my initial test stitching. The orange above is how I am actually quilting the border. Just click on the pictures for a closer look.

Last, I just had to show you what my electronic clock said the outdoor temperature was just before we left the house this afternoon. Talk about Global Warming! I to think we’re having a snow storm!
