"Sunrise" quilted pillow, 15"X15"

"Sunrise" - front - 15"x15"
"Sunrise" - back- 15"x15"
Another pillow done. A local gallery is interested in selling my pillows. I have about four months to make about a dozen of them, and so I am focusing more on how to get them done easier. Slowly, I am getting it. I still continue to enjoy the process of sewing and what a perfect thing to do when it is dark and cold outside.

Our cool kitty MyKi has an area of concern on his back. I need to take him to the vet and hope the finding is not malignant... I am worried...

"By the Sea" quilted pillow

Blue is what this pillow is about. I have been dreaming about a cabin by the blue sea, with warm sandy beach, something like Costa Rica was many years ago. I have been dreaming of walking on the beach and getting my feet wet as I listen to the waves... it almost is as if I could be there, but not quite. Sewing this pillow got me into the mood of that tropical warmth though. It did not hurt to have the house warm.

"Tropical night" front panel, 15"x15"
It is a beautiful day today. Cool, sunny and delightful. We just finished a great walk through the woods. it is so incredibly green in places. This is certainly not reflected in this piece. I loved the indigo colored fabric. It reminds me of midnight darkness illuminated by a full moon....
