Nearing the End
Oh, Happy Day!

Last Gasp of 2020

Lebanon-BaalbekThis  beautiful mosaic floor was unearthed recently in Baalbek, Lebanon during underground construction of a new drainage system. Look at that design - does it look familiar? :) It was flooring in a large palace hall built by the Romans in antiquity. There are so many lovely tiling patterns that also appear as patchwork designs. I'd call this one Clamshell and the ombre colors could be aired in any modern quilt tomorrow! Beautiful. 

Today was heavy, gray and wet. Not nice at all and cold, to boot. :P I did get into my sewing room for a while but decided not to do anything requiring good visibility (the lighting in my room needs some upgrading, absent sunshine). I added an outer border to the small improv quilt I worked on yesterday:

BabymedallionThis is as big as I think I will make this one ... lap sized for a child. I went through the rest of my improv blocks - I have enough to make a table runner, a table topper and a couple of placemats. I'll get to that another time. Now I need to go on with machine quilting the Hope project. I have been searching for my painter's tape and finally found it just as I finished up sewing for today.

Happy New Year!!

:) Linda
