Quilting and Museums

It's been very busy around here the last few weeks. Occasionally there are a few moments to quilt. I'm quilting Trip Around the Block on my Bernina

Machine quilting Trip Around the Block

and hand sewing the binding of Postage Stamp during the news. I feel very efficient!

Ready to hand sew the binding on this Postage Stamp

Most of the time, however, we've been traveling or hosting friends at home. Spring is a glorious time to travel in Texas. The weather is mild and beautiful wildflowers bank all the hillsides. We drove to Dallas for the IPv6 conference and enjoyed early views of bluebonnets, Indian blanket and butterfly weed.

The Menil Museum has two Magritte exhibits, both ending in June, while the Museum of Natural Science is exhibiting an original edition of the Magna Carta, Faberge and a very interesting series of gemstone carvings by Harold van Pelt. They are all wonderful; well worth the time.

Fret not; enjoy the day.
