One Month

In two days I start back to work again after a month off.  I have logged many hours doing continuing education for Dayjob, baked almost every variety of pumpkin muffin/scone/cookie you can imagine and of course have been creating.

In a month:

Pattern Play (I replicated the Tate Museum flooring pattern using a modification of Latifah Saafir’s Glam Clam Pattern in bag form.  For fun I added a knit pillow of my design to match my previously finished quilt top with buttons covered with treasured Umbrella Prints fabric):

  1. Well Hillary, I’m sorry you weren’t able to accomplish much during your time off…(again – do you never sleep?!). That tiny blue triangle piece in the tweed is so fabulous , I mean amazing-love. Also I just returned from Houston and saw your pieces there too- have seen them on the blog but they were superb. ( of course the modern exhibit was my all around fave but there is always some wicked-good inspiration to be found on every row). Looks like a pretty excellent (and ridiculously productive) stay-cay to me.

  2. Time is a tricky thing isn’t it?! Goes by fast and stands still depending on how you look at it. So in love with your work. The repurposing projects, and honestly – all of the rest too – are just so inspiring.

  3. you have been BUSY!!!! Gosh, so many really fun things for you in October. I cannot even imagine what you will do in retirement. look out world here Hillary comes! Oh, and PS I hear/saw you have another fabulously quilted quilt coming your way. I almost stole it. I’m just saying.
