Watching avocado pits germinate. There isn't a lot to say about this, except that avocado trees have never been my greatest success. I keep trying, however. When I was in Fla. in July, my mother informed me that the huge avocado tree outside her building came from a pit she planted. What makes me think the same thing will happen in New Jersey?
Sewing down facing. We rented an oddball, warmhearted Argentine film that gave me an excuse to sit still for a while and sew. Here is the back of the piece: a failed experiment with wax and discharge paste that ended up exactly where it belongs. I will return to it as soon as I finish my blog break, which should be soon.Reading the Art Quilt Reviews Blog which, you may have noticed, I have added as a link on my sidebar. So far, I am delighted to have such a resource. The reviewers are treating the exhibits are ART and reviewing them on that basis, which is as it should be. They also seem to be objective rather than 'la di da, aren't we wonderful?' -- a phenomenon we see all too often in some quilt magazine reviews. So, GO THERE. Contribute. Write a review of an exhibit you have seen. Festival of Quilts, anyone?
Back to work on the facing and then I'm done for the day.
