This is what Ive been doing for the last two weeks! This is almost 200yds of fabric!

While I was at the Barn Nancy said I should use some new colors so she took me down to her dye studio and started calling out names! I have to say that there are colors here I would never have picked, but I really like! Some beautiful greys and browns!

I pulled about 15 colors for another new quilt! Now if it will just cool down!!!

I also ordered 1000 yds of Pimatex PFD, its sitting in Saigon, I just have to get it to my house!!! Crazy!

Well I sort of threw this up yesterday then did some refining today and now Im going to try to sew it together!!! This will be hard for me because I strip piece almost everything, but I must grow and I think this could be a cool piece. The title is Ricefield Sunrise.

Bulls Eye

Is this a comment of my work?

Here it is and I love it! I am going to sew them together in a horizontal row, I have the perfect place to hang it! This was so much fun to work on, I might even do another one!

Now any ideas about the quilting? Grid, spiral, spokes, what?

New member of the house hold!!! She is a handful.
A friend found her huddled in the middle of the busiest street in Hoi An with motor bikes and cars barley missing her, he swooped her up and took her home, she was just 2 weeks old!!! I got her a few weeks ago and she keeps Tink in line!

View from my balcony

I heard the drums first so I knew the was a funeral procession on its way. When a person dies they stay in the house for three days and everyone wears white, many people come to pay respects.

The last photo is a woman on her way to market, this is how most things are carried here.
