Slightly Out of Focus

I couldn't quite settle on any one thing today. The house was cold when I got up, so I huddled under a quilt on the couch and watched some TV while working on the redwork cross and waiting for the earth stove to take the chill off.

But eventually I knew I needed to get off the couch and get to work. I darned a pair of socks sitting next to my sewing table - I one darns socks anymore, but in these economic times, it could just see a revival. Anyway, it was a warm-up to attaching the labels on my tie quilt with beads.

It was looking awfully nice outside, so I went out to get my mail and check the temperature. Oh my - warm enough to bring lunch out on the porch and too warm to go back inside after it was eaten. So I got out the azalea mosaic and appliqued some squares. Remember me saying that as fall approached I was losing interesting in working with this tropical color palette (see this post)? Imagine my surprise as I unfolded it and saw how closely my azalea yellow matches the maple leaves now blanketing my lawn.

I really like the addition of the labels.
