book is an excellent source of inspiration and curvy piecing. So I cut some gently curving strips from some of the FQ's I won from Geroge Sicilano and this is the bit I made.
I will be sure to make them gentle curves since as soon as they get a little beyond that I ended up with a bit of a pucker. I do love the look of a wonky shaped line! I cut them up and pieced this...
My Sunday afternoon was spent with Melissa and her soon-to-be BIL and BFF, Cameron at the Pearl Street Grills Big Fat Bridal Show in downtown Buffalo. We sampled a truly unique and oh-so-yummy Banana Pepper dip served warm and the Chicken Fricassee was mmmmmm. We need to change the chicken dish to this one.
While we were downtown I decided Melissa and Cam needed new FB profile pics. We had an impromptu photo session.
Forest Lawn Cemetery in Buffalo. My Aunt Molly and Uncle Tom would take my sister Noni and me there when we were very young to feed the ducks and catfish in one of the ponds. It is a beautiful, historic burial ground. I love it so much that when Melissa was mulling over places for a wedding ceremony I suggested the chapel in Forest Lawn. I am of the minority apparently that thinks a wedding in a cemetery would no be strange. Well turns out this may have been really weird as the chapel is also the crematorium. That is just bad karma.
- Winter is wreaking havoc on my psyche. We need a break from this cold. My sister is a school RN in a Buffalo high school. She has had 3 kids with frostbite since January began.
- Lonesome Dove was excellent.
- Last Night in Twisted River by John Irving. Usual John Irving quirkiness. I think I like it. I am interested, that is something.
- Unstoppable. Good movie. Denzel Washington makes anything watch-worthy.
