Wow! did my last post generate a lot of comment or what? Want some more? Then go to Nadine's Blog Quilt Epiphany. She is talking along the same theme.
What am I working on? Well this stitchery for starters. That pumpkin is just too, too cute. I notice that Carole is working on the same thing.
I finally got the OK to use the song title on my Challenge Quilt. It was very roundabout. I looked up Don Henley's website and found a link to a wetlands back east that he sponsors. I emailed them with my request and asked them to forward it onto Don. I got a reply from one of his peeps in WA that I needed to make the request from someone in GA. So I did. I got an answer from the label people in CA. Whew! I was told that I did not need permission to reprint the title of the song on the quilt, but if I planned on reprinting lyrics then I must get permission from the company. Double Whew! Now I can continue with it.
I went to my little quilt bee on Monday night and came home just wanting to sew and quilt. Does that happen to you? We are working on our own BOMs. Each month a member brings a block with directions and tips on how to make it. We all go home and make the block with our fabrics. Libby would be proud of me because I'm making it with homespuns. So totally not me. I am also making two versions. The full sized 12" block and then I'm redrafting it to a 6" block. The latest block has a lot of pieces so my mini version is going to have some 1/2" pieces in it. Gulp!
I'll leave you with the picture taken from a high point on Fall River Road in Rocky Mountain National Park. It is a wonderful drive but a bit daunting if you have a large vehicle. When the road was build in the 1930's the cars were quite a bit narrower. And there just is not any room to expand the road. It's all the park service can do to keep the road passable. Yes, it is a one lane dirt road.
