I finished the first little Halloween quilt that I showed last week and moved on to #2....
I am trying to decide whether to use
solid black. . . . . .
or a patterned black for the setting squares and
I already have 2 or 3 more quilts in my brain that I would like to make in this same orange and black color scheme. I don't know why I didn't think of this years ago. I really like how these look.
Our daughter made it safely to Saudi Arabia. She left here at 6:00 am on Monday and arrived at her apartment about 7:00 pm on Tuesday (which was Wednesday there). She had been traveling or sitting in airports that entire time. Before the week was over she had already taught two days.
She now wears an abaya - a long black overcoat anytime she is on the street or in the presence of men. In her classroom (which is all women) she can remove the coat and her scarf. The temp there is 100+, so I am sure it must be stifling hot with the coat. She also wears ankle length skirts and must wear sleeves that at least cover the elbows. Fortunately she is very flexible and none of this seems to faze her.
On her first night there, she went out to dinner with several other women from the US or Great Britain. In the restaurant they were placed in a curtained room. Each time the waiter arrived to serve them, he had to announce himself outside the curtain and the women made sure they had their scarves on, etc. As soon as he left the room and drew the curtain, off it all came. I am sure this must have been very comical as he came and went quite often.
Enjoy some quilting today. The Y is closed today, so I can have a whole day of fun.
