Lavender Blue...

Grace's wedding cake project touched
Sassy's heart.  Lavender was the theme
color of our wedding. Grace made the
perfect cake without knowing that Sassy
would choose the cake with lavender
flowers above all others.

Bonding/ mental telepathy would
you say?

Beautiful cake, Grace.

Frances Mae

Nymph... Sprite... Fairy Queen. 
She dances forever in my heart.

My dear Irish child your steps
will lead us into the mystical 
landscape of poets and saints...
Irish laughter.

Lead on.

Quilt Block: Numero Uno

Sassy is still enchanted with embroidering labyrinths.
So, the next  leap of faith was to give quilting ago.
See beginner quilt block # 1.

The pattern is ironed on the top layer. Next we
have a filler layer and then a plain bottom layer.

You realize that it is a little crazy for an 80+
year-old grandmother to take up this particular
fiber art.

Nevertheless, quilting is both fun and challenging.
Poking holes, taking small steps on the journey,
choosing to start in the middle instead of following
the labyrinth's directions: proceed from the outside
ring, twist and turn to make your way to center. Let's
call it a small nod to a rebellious old age.
A renewed commitment to keep the blog, Sassy...

Happy 2020

Sassy's new obsession is learning
to embroider a finger labyrinth,
The labyrinth guides you through the
through the twists and turns of your
life journey to the center point.

Pause. Meditate. Wait.
Make the return journey.

May 2020 be magical, a journey to
the center and back with new insights
and blessings beyond measure.
