Quilting Diva

Thank you for your comments on my office.
I made the Kokeshi wallhanger, from a pattern by Susan Claire.
Lisa, the trees you see accross the street from my office window belong to the Jas de Bouffan, that belonged to Cezanne's family... 

After the rain comes the sun, here the sun comes with wind. This time, the wind is very strong. Strong enough to endanger a ferry in Marseille... In other parts of France, that is the snow that made an early appearance. Sometimes up to 15" overnight...
I'm lucky everything is OK at home. It is just too cold and windy to want to go outside, be you human or cat. Perfect weather to work on a self-portrait. I mean, on a pattern by Amy Bradley. I've prepared about half of the pieces to fuse. I'm putting them together, to check the impact of colors as I progress.

I'm preparing for a short week, ending in a 4-days weekend.
I wish you a very happy week. Take care!
