Log Cabin

I've been trying to do a little work on what has become a long-term quilt project. It's basically a log cabin design which will have a little something extra in the middle (hopefully!) I just looooove the colors and prints--dark and light teals, jeweltone blues, sandy tans, creams, burnt red siennas, plaids, dots, smudges, florals. It's a joy to work on this!

Another part of the enjoyment comes from my little stereo, essentially just speakers, made for my iphone. I just plop it in, turn on Pandora to whatever music I want and stitch away! Yesterday I began with Edith Piaf (don't know if I've mentioned how I'm somewhat obsessed with 30's music?) and went from there. Funny, the second song was by Etta James. I guess the Pandora programmers assume if you like one, you'll like the other. Well, actually, in this case they're right--so they must be pretty good at what they do. Also discovered the band, Pink Martini. How could I have missed them?

Somebody else had a relaxing morning, too!

So there I was sewing away, occasionally humming along, so thoroughly enjoying my casual summer Sunday morning.....when my husband brought me a fresh-cut, pink rose in a crystal bowl. How appropriate when listening to...La Vie en Rose!
