The Mouse at rest on a hot humid day.

Look, Im making more fabric for my next in the series. I told myself to use 9 colors..... but these just looked too good to resist. I have an inkling of what this will look like but then ..... who really knows what a piece will turn out like? Sometimes I feel like its magic!

TA DA!!!!

Its all sewn together!!! It went from 117" down to 80"! Im very pleased with this piece even though it is quite different than what I had in mind.... they do that dont they?

I want to do a series based on this so Im planning the next, what to keep and what to change.

It will be a while before its quilted Hong is still working on my Bulls eye piece.

You can click on the photo and see a great close up!

Well here is my lunch! I have a housekeeper that comes twice a week , when shes done cleaning she fixes me lunch. Today was fried rice with shrimp, pork veggies, also on the menu was salad with warm shrimp in a tomato sauce!!! I ate all the salad and have enough rice for two days, all this for 2.50!
HUMMMMMM! Tink just wouldnt come down from up there all day, now I know why, there is a mouse behind the cabinets! I think he took it up there in the first place and now its stuck! Great!
This is what Ive been doing with all the fabrics I made! Its over 9ft long and almost 7 ft high, Im just half way through sewing all the parts together. I love it and am already planning the next one!

I am making "fabric" for my next quilt! I picked out my palette and am trying really hard to stay with it so that in the end all these new fabrics will go together in the big picture!

I still want to make more, its kind of addicting!

My precious Bernina that I shipped here is having problems so the closest dealer is in Singapore!!!! I might have to take it there my self!

road trip

My friend Linda and I went on a road trip a while ago on motor bikes. We had drivers, my friend Dung and a friend of his. It was an all day trip up into the mountains outside of Hoi An. Our butts were VERY sore but it was a great time!

This is a Cao Dai temple

This is a traditional house of one of the many hill tribes with the addition of the ever present satellite dish
Here we are in all our glory!!!
Tobacco leaves drying, great texture and color!
