It was so jolly to read at Project Forty of Janice’s connection between the weather and The Shining on the day before I am to spend an entire 24 hours here alone. I am not a nervy person, but I can work myself up with the best of them! In reality being here alone in two foot of snow is less threatening than being here in ‘normal’ weather – as far as intruders go …….. intruders of the corporeal variety……… so unless I choke on my dinner, or fall down stairs and am unable to reach the telephone…..if the telephone is working…. or receive a visit from other worldy, beyond the veil, shadow figures…..I’ll be fine.
At last I have finished Raphael AGAIN. I made it smaller, made the neckline higher, and did a 6 row garter stitch hem to stop the curling. I am not thrilled with the look, but then I still cannot reconcile the image in the mirror I now see with who ‘I am’ in my mind’s eye.
Next big project Bob’s girlfriend’s 21st birthday quilt which will, I hope, be a little quicker then Binky’s!!!! I have a charm pack and jelly roll of Moda’s Urban Chiks Sweet,
and I am going to keep the layout simple to let the fabric speak, in the style of people I admire like Elizabeth Hartman and Amy . I tend to over think my quilts so I am attempting to forge new and more direct pathways in my head! We’ll see if that is possible……
