About the poet – I found this and a few other poems in the diary of an 18-year old girl a couple of years ago. She would rather remain anonymous. Actually, she can’t remember writing them in the first place and thinks they are rather inane. So when I thought they should be recorded somewhere – whatever their worth – she reluctantly gave me permission to share them here, albeit in my name.
About the poem – She was obviously a fan of ‘Gone With the Wind’.
About the photograph – Credit all mine! Taken on a trip to Palampur in Himachal Pradesh, India.
A lot many visitors, a short vacation, a couple of sicknesses – life has been quite topsy-turvy at this end. Finally got to do some quilting on the second panel of the quilt.
The second quilt-as-you-go panel …
A glimpse of the back…Don’t you love the backing fabric? Tina Katwal of The Square Inch found it for me!
The quilt back! I got a gift of Sulky threads from my son ; am really enjoying fmq now!
I am a bit undecided about the outermost dark blue. How do you think I should quilt it? And then, should the quilt thread be a shade lighter that shows up the quilting or a matching dark blue that merges into it? What do you suggest?
While you decide, here is a closer look at the two blocks I quilted last week.
Evening at the Pond
Card Trick Block
The third panel is all basted – I hope I can get some quilting done tomorrow too! Happy quilting to you!
