today is my only day off this week. of course, next week i will have many free days, yah! birthday!, but for now, i have little time. went to the dmv this morning, with the license gods shining, i was only there for ten minutes! with new license in pocket, i rode my bike to Spool to do some quilting!

three hours of quilting, with some work to go, i have two new quilts almost finished. the actual quilting part is my least favorite, but it is very rewarding to see everything finally coming together.

for now, with the natural light dwindling in our apartment, one large front window, two small in the bedroom, i wanted to shoot the felicidades quilt that i did. i call it that because the front is very sunny and fun, bright pinks, yellows, and oranges, while the back is covered in a v. v. cute Alexander Henry international children print. It reminds me of a costume book i loved as a child. i chose felicidades because it means happiness and congratulations in spanish.

of course, when one is trying to play around with her camera and use the last light and coming shadows in her home, a feisty beagle just has to be a part of it. actually trying to steal the ball right after this photo, so you know it must be fun!


  1. I am so jealous of you being able to ride your bike. I just saw my lonely wheels in the basement before I read this (long story).
    Lovely quilting! That ball is too cute!

  2. Thanks! I hope you get biking soon!
