When was the last time you thanked the moon?

I've always loved the moon. Of course, I was just a kid when mankind visited this celestial sphere, but I remember! I watched it at our neighbour's house. They were the first people on the block to get a colour television. Okay, so I'm dating myself! ;o) Ironically, the event was in black in white! lol

I've been watching a documentary on the History Channel via Netflix called The Universe. That's how I get a lot of hand work done. There's nothing like getting an education while working on some hand projects. I'm the queen of multi-tasking, but I'm digressing..... ;o)

Anyway, come to find out that had it not been for our moon, this earth would be in a big mess! I learned so much about the positive benefits of the moon's gravitational pull and I'm not just talking about tides here! ;o) Next time you look up to the heavens, be thankful! This planet we call earth and it's surroundings is truly amazing!

On the quilting front, I've been scheduling play dates with Penelope.

This weeks lesson, cross hatching!

It's a lot harder than it looks! It's challenging to say the least!

I'm positive I have some warpies going on here! But, I won't show you where they are! lol

I've had this little reproduction quilt top done for a while, waiting to schedule some time to quilt it! I'm hoping to have it finished today so that I can show it to you as a finish!

Thanks for stopping by! Enjoy the day! Cheers!

Hello my sweet friend - nice to 'see' you! I love the moon but must admit that my favorite is the crescent moon. Makes me smile!

Cute little quilt...I always love repros! I love a full moon...I am always fascinated by it! I love looking for faces in the shadows of the surface!

I LOVE to see cross hatching on quilts. But you don't see it very often. And I know why! It isn't easy!

I loooove a beautiful full moon. Sounds like an interesting series. Can't wait to see your quilted quilt. I can't imagine how hard it must be to get those lines straight -- I'm hand quilting some lines and even they aren't straight. I'd be hopeless at the machine!
