Well I continue the voyage that this quilt is now taking me on. I forged ahead with the sashing with a different idea of how to get the quilt to have a more light overall feel
However, because it looked sort of stark right next to the pieced center, I first added an inner border of my new favorite beige linen. Yes,
Of course this border also needs to be surrounded by white.....
So this afternoon, we went out just for the sake of being out and about.
I picked up 4 or 5 books at a bookshop, so I have lots of great reading in the week(s) ahead. Over Christmas I read a book by Pat Conroy called his "My Reading Life", which is a series of chapters about people and books who have influenced him throughout his life. At one point he mentions that he has, since he was a freshman in high school, tried to read at least two hundred pages every day. I think this is amazing, and feel like quite a slug in comparison. It makes one think.
We also wandered around downtown Savannah for a while. (this makes me so happy and I frequently feel quite surprised and privileged to live (part-time) in this amazingly beautiful place.
At some point the sky was quite dramatic, and this is a shot taken with my ipod of the cloud behind a church spire. Very Dramatic.
