this is orca bay by bonnie hunter, our scrappy pattern guru....this top got donated as well...for purely selfish reasons....it was too big for my usual needs and with so many seams, tough to hand quilt. i love the pattern and the colors i chose but somebody else is enjoying its warmth, which is fine by me. *** brief pity party before cruising blogs and finding cancer, MS, a disabled husband and other situations much worse than mine. snapped me back to reality and how fortunate i am even with current life glitches. a quick "thank you" to God for a safe stop on my way even tho missing my sewing but hoping can remedy that soon. *** remnants of winter linger in nippy breezes and overcast skies. can't last as summer must come eventually, which will be thoroughly enjoyed by all. now where ARE those shorts and swimsuit????
