For Christmas this last year, I bought Al and me a gift card for a visit to this very Zen spa on the Sonoma County coast for a bath in hot cedar chips (go figure!) and a massage. It's taken us all this time to find a weekend to go up there, but we're going to spend a little of the bonus he just got on a nice hotel room and a great dinner. I can't wait!
Today I received the last two blocks from a birthday block swap I participate in each year. I think I posted a photo of my focus fabric last September after we got back from Hawaii. The fabric reminded me of lava and other Hawaiian colors. So, here are all my blocks:
I'm cheerfully accepting all suggestions as to how to set these in an interesting way -- I'm tired of the standard sashing-and-cornerpost routine! There's some almost black or very dark purple in the focus fabric, so I'm thinking about using that somehow.
