It's been a while since I've blogged, so here is a brief update of projects I'm working on or completed, and some of the adventures.
Early in April we visited the Maparium at the Christian Science Center in Boston to visit the globe. It's a beautiful glass structure which you walk through. Unfortunately, photos are not allowed inside the globe. But, the tile in the women's bathroom looked like it might make a wonderful quilt.
I've been doing a little bit of knitting and completed two pair of socks and a cat. Not exactly sure that I love the pattern, but she's growing on me.
In sewing news, I made a messenger bag to haul the scorebook and other items with us to the baseball games, completed the top for scrap-in-a-box and completed my Polish Eagle wall hanging. I was a little disappointed that it did not win any prizes for the guild challenge project, but I'm very happy with it anyway.
One thing that made me very happy at my last regular guild meeting in May is that my Florabunda quilt won best of guild and will be hanging in the New England Quilt Museum in an exhibition of the Best of the Region's Quilt Guilds quilts. The show goes from July 30, through August 15, 2015. So, stop by if you're in the area.
And, we've done a little bit of traveling. We were fortunate to spend part of a Red Sox game behind the scoreboard (aka the Green Monster). A very interesting view and fun to talk to the guys who keep the board up to date with games and scores. I even got to put one of the inning numbers into the slot.
On a trip out to Bedford, PA, we stopped at a few lighthouses on Lake Erie including this one at Dunkirk, NY. We also stumbled onto the Oscar Mayer Wiener Mobile and this amazing mural. It must have been a quarter of a mile long and made entirely from road signs.
And this is what I've been up to lately.
