Quilty name

Mine is Tsarina, Quilt Shop Explorer.

John left for his 11 day hunting trip yesterday morning. I am so enjoying all the peace and quiet.
Working on a really large oriental quilt right now. I really hate working with black. It tends to attract anything floating in the air. And it's hard on these poor old eyes to see black on black.
Here is a small sampling.

I drew out several ideas inbetween the arcs but settled on feathers. I got a new chalk at Joann's and love it. It was in the quilting section and comes with a holder, several white very thin white chalks and several colored chalks. I am loving it. Easy to see and easy to remove. It's called Dritz Chalk Cartridge Set.

Well, Mari is at Ft. Benning Georgia today trying to get all her paper work done and get signed up for housing. Then she goes home for the weekend and pick up her 13 yr old then back to Georgia on Monday. I hope things go smoothly for her.

Have a great weekend.
