Project Modern ~ Year Long Series of Quilting Challenges


Project Modern

Go check it out!  Sounds like it will be lots of fun!


I still love traditional quilts, but have ventured into more ‘modern’ quilts with fabrics that are out of my comfort zone…thanks to quarterly craft ‘color’ challenges in a group that I am in.

For Today ~ 18 August 2010 ~ Simple Woman’s Daybook

FOR TODAY … 18 August 2010

Outside My Window… Sunny, warm…BUT…it’s only going to be 90F today! Cool Down! Yeah right…I’ll be happy when the high is 65-70F…until then, bugger off! Oh yes…back to what is outside my window…folks walking in the door coming to work.

I am thinking… I really don’t want to be here at work. I’m going through that cycle where I go to work kicking and screaming…NO NO NO! YOU CAN’T MAKE ME GO! Big sigh. I want to work on my Ocean/Water quilt…I want to go to San Francisco…I want walk along the beach in the surf.

I am thankful for… all the pretty fabric in the world.

From the kitchen… Hopefully nothing! At least nothing that I have to make! I want to go out to eat tonight!

I am wearing… shorts, greyish brown t-shirt, barefoot (sandels are under the desk) and my hair down.

I am creating… my Water Baby quilt!

I am going… whine some more about being here at work and not at the oceanside.

I am reading… nothing at the moment.

I am hoping… that the Giants can pick up a few games from the Phillies! We will be knocked out of the Wild Card if they don’t!

I am hearing… the a/c and doors slam…sounds like someone else doesn’t want to be here!

Around the house… dead tomatillo plants. WAH!

One of my favorite things… Well…you know…that big blue-green wet thing on the west side of California? Yeah…that’s it!

A Few Plans For The Rest Of The Week… mope and whine. Go out to lunch with my former boss. Continue sewing on my quilt.

Here is a picture thought I’d share with you…

A pregame shot of Pac Bell (or AT&T) Park…from our seats at the August 1st game against the Dodgers.

OK! Had to add another picture after seeing Donna’s post about not many people at the game. August 1st game was a sell out crowd ~ here is a picture from the other side of the park looking up at our seats. We took a walkabout during the 7th Inning Stretch.
