STARRING...MY APPLIQUE STRUGGLES
Well...here it is, my first ever appliqued star. Definitely puffy (not laying flat--aaargh!!--will quilt that out--I hope) and the points...not so much....
You can see my squared off points; and puffy center!
HERE are the two best points...this took me about 45 minutes (*&%$######). As I said .."warts and all" I am keeping this in the little house quilt because it is my first attempt....a little humility is good for us all...(ROTFLOL)
(Madame Rosa doesn't see too many stars in your future!! )
And Speaking of REAL STARS:
Last night, DH surprised me with an evening at the Eastern CT Symphony to hear my former flute teacher perform a contemporary Concerto for Flute and Orchestra by Rouse. A fabulous performance of a very difficult piece--very Gaelic which was fitting for St. Patrick's Day Eve.
We also heard Barber's "School For Scandal"--a really lush and wonderful work (one of my favorites); and Shostakovich's 5th Symphony. It was so fantastic to hear a "LIVE" performance. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves....
And so it goes...wishing you a restful Sunday afternoon...Hugs Julierose, La Blageuse
