August 24

On this day in 79Mount Vesuvius erupts. The cities of Pompeii, Herculaneum, and Stabiae are buried in volcanic ash.

It was another humid stick summer day for me. Work went by in a haze. I am doing a lot of drawings now for a new project and I tend to get lost in the process.

Got home, and found a SURPRISE waiting in my mailbox:

This lovely bag and pin cushion from fiestagirl! Aren't they lovely! Just made my day. She was one of the responders to my give-away earlier in the month. I thought I was just streamlining and finding new homes for my crafting overages, but in cleaning and sorting and giving, I seem to have acquired some blog-friends from it! Looks like I got the best of the deal!!!!

And, I got inspired yesterday.

Remember this?

Well, I had toyed around placing fabric on the design wall beside it.

Didn't seem right.

thought about just trashing it and moving on.

Then I just decided to sit an look at it and see where it wanted to go.

I didn't get out of my pajamas until 4pm Sunday afternoon, I started sewing on this early Sunday morning and it just happened:

I love it. It is 66" square and ready to quilt.

Glad I listened to it!

Kheli your quilt is outstanding. Will you be creating a pattern for it? It is so unique and visually appealing. I love it!

What happened to cutting it in a circle and appliqueing it onto the black?
