January 2010 Musings
January 9, 2010
After a full week of retirement - I am overwhelmed with glee. I've done only a smidge of housework, just enough to get by. Much of my time has been spent getting my quilting documentation in order. I finally organized my data files so I can actually find what I am looking for, and catalogued "new" quilt designs that had been left un-documented, For about 10 years, I have crocheted baby blankets for Laura Schlessenger's My Stuff Bags, so now that I have more time, I thought I might do more of that. But, I met a woman in the WalMart yarn section who told me she knits chemo caps. I got in touch with her contact in Raleigh, and am now playing with cap patterns to crochet to send to her. If you are interested in doing something similar in your own area, check out www.headhuggers.org for ideas.
Now, back to quilting. My husband and I received an Amazon gift certificate, so I spent my part trying to get some help with color selection. I just received Joen Wolfrom's Color Play, which uses the Ives Color Wheel, in which the primary colors are yellow, magenta, and torquoise. I don't know if I will get better at selecting colors or not. All I know, is that if I select the colors I like, all my quilts will look alike! Ha!
