Aug 10 – I love hanging quilts up and taking pictures at a distance because a pattern often becomes apparent – usually one I didn’t notice before.  This quilt is one I fell in love with the moment I saw it.  The mix of wool blanket squares with the bright funky sashing and the utilitarian red plaid flannel back just spoke to me.  There was a big hole in the back and I eventually found a plaid flannel shirt in a similar pattern and patched it.  It’s quite heavy and warm, which is always welcome come winter here.

I got a new clothes line – one of those umbrella types with four sides and it spins around.  It’s great!
