|Almost Still Life|
I purchased a used book, Art Quilt Workbook by Jane Davila & Elin Waterston. When those used books are labelled as "good" condition, that may indicate that the previous owner scribbled in it. Thankfully, that person only made it halfway through chapter two. The rest of the book is clean.
|Detail of the bumpy gourd|
It took several colors of thread, some solids, some variegated, to suggest the bumpy texture and mottled colors in this gourd. I think I could have added three times as much thread, but decided not to flatten out the quilt here.
My current flavor of hot tea is Vanilla Madagascar. No honey, just hot tea. It soothes a sore throat just by being hot.
Enjoy your day!
