I finished two quilts this week -- although they're both small ones. First is "Wind and Water" -- this has those fabulous 6" blocks that Kendra Maclean made for me in a swap last year. The photo really doesn't do them justice! And this is "Ice Crystals" -- it's my quilt for the Four Seasons Quilt Swap (Winter Edition) and it's going to be mailed far away tomorrow morning! I was inspired by Karen Combs' projects for EQ6, and adapted her Celtic design for my own purposes.
Next up -- a bit of travel, mostly for work. For the last few years I've done a horrendous 4-countries-in-5-days "dog and pony show" trip every winter for one of my clients. This year they decided to break it up into two trips. Next week is Boston and Bermuda... quite the contrast!
Then I'm home for most of a week and after that I'm off to London, Munich and Zurich. I have arranged to have 2 days to play in London. I've spent quite a bit of time there, so I don't feel like I need to do the seriously touristy stuff. But -- I'd be happy to have any recommendations for quilty or knitty things, favorite teashops, etc. Part of the time I'll be with a colleague who has zero interest in fabric, crafts, "culture" or anything but clothes shopping and her kids' sports activities. In other words, we have absolutely nothing in common except that we work together a couple of days a week! I am going to make sure I get to escape for a day, though, to do the things I want to do.
