leftovers

growl ... growl ... growl
somethings are better after they've had a chance to mellow...
the bear was a pattern test (which was a good thing - there was a little mistake that i wouldn't have found till it was too late) for the Spirit Guides tree skirt... 
the flying geese, pinwheels and backing were from the Quilt With No Name...
 even the pillow stuffed inside was leftover from when i THOUGHT i wanted a king-sized pillow on my bed...

Leftovers make you feel good twice.
First, when you put it away, you feel thrifty and intelligent: "I'm saving food!"
Then a month later when blue hair is growing out of the ham, and you throw it away, you feel really intelligent, "I'm saving my life!"

somewhere out there

the phases of the moon tree skirt for the space tree is done...
and not according to the Original Plan... 
it WAS gonna be a square 
and i wasn't gonna name it...
 but it kept whispering to me that it wanted to be round 
and that it wanted a Real Name...

and (thanks to Jennifer and Molly) i decided to listen to what it was telling me...

instead of being square, it is now circular 
and instead of no name at all, it is now called 
Somewhere Out There...
somewhere out there
the quilting by Liz Bowman is Death Stars 
and they are awesome...
that's no moon ... it's a space station
it's gonna look waaay cool under the space tree...

we are stardust
we are golden
we are billion year old carbon
and we've got to get ourselves
 back to the garden
