|Sunrise on Friday|
On Tuesday I gave "Every Quilt Tells a Story" for P.E.O. Chapter LA (based in Deerfield, though the meeting hostess lives in Lake Forest). I asked if someone could take pictures. Indeed -- and here is the link to the photo collage:
Chalk Talk is a community event to foster conversation about the character traits we value.
100 posters (out of 225+/- photos taken) were put up in a storefront gallery and in windows in Zion, Beach Park, and Winthrop Harbor.
I helped set up on Thursday, stopped in at the open house on Friday, and then tried to find all of the posters on Saturday.
Cal (blue shirt) is the Community of Character committee chairman.
And me? I ended up on the door to the post office, which is better than being on the wall inside it!
Meanwhile, downstairs in the studio: I wanted to make a yellow jacket to wear at the upcoming P.E.O. convention. I was sure I had a piece of yellow linen. I looked in this box, and that box, and those two other boxes. Whew! I finally found it. I modified a pattern I'd used some years before, but I had to re-read the instructions to be sure I did the collar and front facings correctly. I don't make many garments these days.
Joann's sent a coupon for 60% off premium cottons, which included batiks. There was also a 20% off the entire purchase. These four batiks (7-1/2 yds total) cost $2.49/yd! The turquoise will be used as a tablecloth at the P.E.O. convention prior to becoming part of a quilt (perhaps sashing for these batik stars?). [Also in the photo: a twin cotton flat sheet, $2.32 at a thrift shop where I also bought five summer blouses for $15.]
