Wow. It's been a while since I posted. I was in Monterey again this past weekend with my girls for a birthday. We shopped in beautiful Carmel, tried a few new (to us) restaurants hoping for really good food. Sadly, the best thing I ate was a cream cheese croissant and mocha from a coffee shop. Two of us had a stomach virus, the other had hives and was on antihistamines all weekend. I barely took out my camera, so all I came back with was this....
All the dogs were leashed, very well behaved and very purebred. It was like stepping into the ring at the Eukanuba dog show, or watching Best in Show.
When I came home, I went right into the old sewing room and finished my second candy dish quilt.
I really like the colors on this one and how the top of the candy dish blends into the background fabric.
Thank you all for the great suggestions on my white crocheted blanket! I'm still toying around with a few ideas, but I'm hoping for a good finish. Meanwhile I have been working on a pillow. Usually I start out making a blanket, get bored and turn it into a pillow. This time I started out making a pillow and I want to turn it into a blanket. Ha! there is just no satisfying a hooker.
