It feels just the tiniest bit like fall here in the Bay Area. We had a little wave of scorching weather for a few days, but that went away when the fog came back. Today it's sunny and mild. It always interests me that even in a place that "doesn't have seasons" there is still that one day where you know it's fall or know it's spring...
Remember this quilt top I showed a couple of weeks ago?
I decided that I didn't like the lower right corner -- it just seemed to "hot" with all that bright red. I rummaged up another block from the swap that had gotten buried in the pile on my ironing board, and spent a few minutes swapping it out -- here's the do-over, which I find much more pleasing:
And I have to show off this little piggy that I made for Libby, who's recovering from surgery. When I had my tonsils out at age 6, I took my Piglet doll to the hospital with me, and when I awoke from the surgery Piglet was there with a band-aid on his throat.
I have a vintage 1965 McCalls pattern of Winnie The Pooh animals (which I hadn't used since about 1968) so I decided that Libby needed a Piglet, too.Fun to make, but now I remember how fiddly those little seams are...
