Wow! Two days in a row. Met my friend Aleeda for lunch today in NY and we had a delicious $8 buffet lunch at Tiffin Walla, vegetarian Indian, on 28th St. near Lexington Ave. That whole neighborhood (known as Curry Hill) is filled with Indian restaurants and many have South Indian cuisine: my favorite.
Aleeda and met to discuss the North Jersey Modern Quilt Guild we are starting, and we hope to have a place to meet and some other things taken care of so we can have our first meeting sometime this summer. We are going to be an "un-guild"-- informal, friendly, and low-key. We both belong to the NY Metro Mod and will continue to be members there, but the NY guild is now closed to new members, so it's time for the North Jersey moderns to have a chapter. We're so excited!
I have hardly had time to work on the piece I started last week that is now in the slow design stage. Very slow. I'm adding, moving things around, and taking pictures. And I can see that I will have to make some new units -- not knowing whether they will work. But if they don't, I'll save them for something else. Here's a progression so you can see my process...
For now, I am leaving them. Tomorrow, the studio!
