Now I'm trying to remind myself that the world at large isn't such a great place, and that while I was inconvenienced, I was standing in an air conditioned room to mail a funny card to my father-in-law for Father's Day (another thing that put me in a bad mood: I had to be the one in line when it wasn't my card to send, but that's a different story). Besides, I had a full belly from a great lunch at one of my favorite cafes, and I got to spend time with mah man (said in my best southern belle accent) in a peaceful garden located on Vandy's campus. And did I mention that I'm cancer-free? Yeah, I know. I've got a lot to be grateful for.
|Miranda has become my assistant. I volunteered her. ;) For all of these pictures, we went to a park across from Vanderbilt's main campus, where there is this awesome sea dragon covered in tile mosaics. I call this quilt Happy Skies.|
|Happy Skies, close up. These are blocks made for me via various quilt bees on flickr.|

|This is my take on the Marcelle Medallion quilt. I loved making this quilt, and will probably make another for myself - it was a little hard to let this one go.|
|Marcelle Medallion center block. Since I love paper-piecing, I altered the pattern so that I could PP this block and some of the borders. Don't you love the Liberty prints used in that star? Yum!|
|The last two borders were a lot of fun. I thoroughly enjoyed making the plus border, and who can resist pink flamingos??|
