Light Up My Life...

I enjoyed a mind blowing quilt weekend!  I have some slide shows to share with you but they will take me a day or so to put together.  In the meantime I'll start today's blog on the light side... because I am pooped! LOL  3 days at the the Contemporary Folk Art Quilting Retreat with Sue Spargo and Tonye Belinda Phillips was incredible.  I learned so much!  I was taking the class with 3 other Fabric Stalkers and 2 of them stayed over for the weekend...and it was a quilter slumber party!

The snow moved in over the weekend and the mountains were majestic, especially with the full moon last night.

One of the ways I calm and center myself is through mood lighting.  I have this candle burning at my kitchen sink...nothing like doing dishes with the scent of cinnamon floating around.

I like all kinds of mood lighting.  These are lighted twigs that you can get at JoAnn's and run on little battery packs.  I stuck a bunch of fake fall flowers with the lights.

and I couldn't pass up a candle called "cookie dough!" lol

This beautiful candelabra (I normally don't light it here) was handmade by Blue Spruce Pottery.  HH and I have been collecting their pottery for years both functional and beautiful...and they ship!

Tomorrow I will start showing photos of the workshop...but first I had to show you the latest project that Lori and I jumped into...feet first with our hearts wide open!  Stitch Society with Tamra!  What can I say...stitching fills my soul!  I hope you have moments that fill your soul :)
