Small Business Saturday.

Aerial quilt, carolyn friedlander

I do love local.

And of all the promotional holidays we have going on right now, this is one that I’m happy to partake of.

My mom, sister, and I will be venturing off to our local, independent kitchen shop, which is always a great time.  And I think we’ll also be able to catch the Lake Wales Farmers’ Market, which means a visit to my favorite–the Guacamole Guy.

Yummy.

Here are some other great places to shop.

Happy Small Business Saturday!

feeling wild about texture and wildly strong.

 

Ah, texture. Such a wonderful thing. And one of my favorite things about quilting.

It’s been nice to be able to enjoy some of my quilts since getting them back recently. I finished my aerial cover sample right before her launch in Kansas City, and she’s been touring quilt shops ever since. So we haven’t had much time together outside of her making.

 

While laying it out yesterday, I was reminded of how much I love texture and my obsession with it in this project.

I am also one of those people who enjoys both sides of a quilt, especially when the back allows you to see the front in a different way.

Also recently, I have been killing rotary cutters. I’m not sure if I’m using the wrong type, using them the wrong way, or just totally unaware of my own brute strength, but I’m on my third in about 2 months.

I’m down to the little guy on the right, and based on my track record with the big ones, he’s not going to last long.

I’m taking recommendations…
