Over the weekend, the winner was chosen at random from comments left on my New2me Juki celebration giveaway post. Congratulations to M-R at Quilt Matters, who we all know from TGIFF! I was excited to pack the little Henna fabric bundle to a real Web-Celeb:-)
On my mind for some time now is a Vegas skyline quilt. Photos I have taken from my house are just a bit too far away to work with, so I drove in 4 or 5 miles this morning and caught a few pics. This is about 15mi SE of the Strip. (I know, I really have no business posting photos taken from my little point and shoot, but this is quilt-related!) I find it challenging to capture desert beauty in photos (without driving to some destination, like Red Rock Canyon). I live slightly higher up from this vantage point, and I love to see the buildings shimmer in the morning. But from 20mi away, my photos just don't capture it.
I will draw a simple sketch from this photo, so for its purpose it is good, good enough.
On a sad note, I hit a jackrabbit on my way out this morning.
The poor little guy ran right out in front of me.
On a happy note, the book I reserved at the library is in. I thought it may be lost since it was listed in stock, but weeks have gone by. Hopefully it will show me what I did wrong on my donut applique patch:-)
