Color Inspiration

Crazy Quilt Embellishment Assortment - Peach & Gray
from, ribbons, embellishment assortments, crazy quilt assortments, peach & gray

Recovering from surgery and spending WAAAAAYYYYY too much time on pinterest.  Saw this lovely color combination.  The jury is still out on whether I'm really a "grey" fan (ironic considering my blog background . . . really must change that), but I sure do love "coral" (that color really deserves to be called "coral", too dark for "peach").

Do you spell it gray or grey?  They've used the former, I prefer the latter.

Today, This Ruler is My Friend

I do not like trimming blocks.  I do everything in my power to construct a block that will not need to be trimmed.

But sometimes . . . sometimes it is necessary.  And, today, I'm glad that I have a 12-1/2"  square ruler.  It sure makes the process speedy.

I'm especially glad I have this ruler today since this is what it's doing outside . . .

My poor apple tree.  We skipped fall and went straight to winter around here.  Hopefully it melts fast . . . we still have some fall to celebrate.

tee, hee, hee

(Do you see the circles in that quilt? I'm thinking of quilting giant spiderwebs.)
