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 :)
