Am up early finishing some of my own Christmas sewing projects--they must go out the door at noon to arrive on time!--but am taking a moment to procrastinate and read your blog on this first winter morn. Happy to see you're back up and running--I really enjoy your posts. You'll laugh to know that as I work, I'm wrapped up in my own clapotis made from stunningly rich fuchia colored Blue Skys alpaca--it's considerably colder here in the northeast, although admittedly, we do use heat... The contrast to my old black watch plaid L.L. Bean flannel pajamas must look strange, but it couldn't be a cozier combo. Incidentally, your daughter is positively stunning. I, too, know of which Steiglitz photo you speak. It may be in the National Portrait Gallery, which is not too far from my home. I'll keep an eye out if I see it there next time I make a visit, and let you know if so. Happy holidays to you! Enjoy that quilt.


That photo of your girl is stunning, I love it, the pattern is gorgeous too. I guess kitty was meant to find your house and family - totally impressed you have a quilting cat with what looks like a very clear idea of how to piece a quilt, it will be beautiful when its done. Totally agree with the slow food movement ideal - and guess what, now we are gradually moving back into our kitchen we realise we seem to have collected infinite quantities of packets of butter beans - I'm thinking lots of slow cooked spicy stews..... bliss. If I ever find where I have put my casserole dishes, that is.


I hope your back is feeling better! I know all too well how much it sucks to have a bad back. ugh. Love your christmas quilt! And I concur, that picture of your daughter is gorgeous. As is the wrap.


Ah, I found a couple, not sure if either of these are the ones you're thinking of for sure, though http://xroads.virginia.edu/~MA02/freed/okeeffe/marketing.html and http://www.answers.com/topic/alfred-stieglitz

Either way, that shawl is beautiful, as is your daughter! And the kitty is precious :)


Eek! Must. have.those.beans. Where did they come from, if you don't mind me asking?
