A Quilt, and Other Random News

I finished this quilt recently.. it was made for a challenge at my local guild. We pulled a color crayon out of a bag and used that color, along with white, black, and gray, and tones of the color we chose.

I got yellow. I used pieces I made in a class: brayer printing, gel print, silk screen, and then improvisational piecing (sort of) and applique. I call this quilt "Pages in a Coloring Book."

We showed our quilts at the December meeting, but I didn't have a camera. I love seeing challenge quilts. There are always some that amaze me.

Random news #1: I don't know what's wrong with my blog. Can you see the sidebar? I can't (although I can see it in "preview" mode). It still shows in the layout, as if it should be there, but doesn't show in real life. I recently upgraded to Windows 10. I'm hoping it's that, and that the blog will sort itself out eventually.

Random news #2: December 13 would have been my dad's 100th birthday. It's hard to believe... he has been gone almost 14 years now. That is even harder to believe. My mom will be 95 in a couple months.

Random news #3: We have our tree up, decorated, gifts wrapped, and cards in the mail. Now all we need to do is clean our house and plan a Christmas dinner menu. How are you doing for Christmas prep, or did you enjoy your Hanukkah celebration, or is this time of year just any old time like normal days? (It's that way for my son who is working in Korea... no special days off at Christmas time which is odd for him, but normal for them.)

Happy Holidays!

Yes your sidebar is there, everything like it normally is.

I don't see your sidebar - not a single bit of it.
