First, an early distant warning about Candlemas prep.
We who have survived the Christmas season which included a power outage in the middle of our 7th Day/New Year’s Eve gathering, necessitating lighting not just some, but virtually all of our candles lest we stumble around in the pitch dark (and it was magical and lovely, actually, to sing our carols by candlelight only), are reduced to burning stubs of Advent candles on this late date of the 10th of January.
Time to order. (My usual sources have dried up in the votive department. I used to be able to keep well supplied with quality 10-hour votives at Marshall’s. I think I will be ordering these.)
I finished the quilt!
I don’t know if you can see that the quilting thread (pearl or perle cotton) is quite pink.
This quilt took on a life of its own and there’s nothing I can say about the design choices — they just happened. Other than that Rosie suggested the flying geese (ish) design and I went with that.
It’s now safely on Finnabee’s bed!
