Have you ever played with Tyvek? I have been meaning to for a long time but never got around to it until today. I'm not sure why I waited so long because I had lots of fun.

Friday Flower Digitalis

I have always know Digitalis as Foxgloves. I remember seeing them growing wild in the fields and believed I shouldn't touch them because they were poisonous, however I later found that medicines called Digitalin can be extracted from them which are used for treatment of heart conditions. Now they are grown in gardens like the one I snapped in this garden.

Do you have many quilt tops sitting in the cupboard waiting to be quilted? Or are you tired of sending your quilts off to a longarm quilter for them to finish your beautiful quilt? Quilting your own quilts is very rewarding.

Corn and Beans Block

Corn and Beans quilt block is one of the blocks in Carol's class "Anatomy of a Block" which I'm currently teaching at Quilt University. This will be the last time this class is running, but I've had a lot of fun not only teaching it but making many of the blocks. Carol gives instructions for 12" blocks, I like making 6" blocks. This proved a little more difficult than most.

I'm a great fan of omeletes. Almost any kind of omelete works for me. I have an omelete every week at least once sometimes twice. My favorite are hot omeletes with chipotle peppers. This morning I made an all veggie omelete which is just as good as one with meat.
