Crummy weather outside makes for a crummy photo inside...
but I did want to get this posted tonight. 

(edited with new photo
much truer colors!)

See the process here, here and here, where the colors look truer. 

I spent the afternoon doing meditative stitching. It's a time honored practice in dark times. I love my stitching tribe, flung across the world, ignoring boundaries and borders. We shall not be deterred from choosing light and love. I am sending both, in good measure, to Syria and Sweden and all the other places that are hurting today.

  2. Your mini quilt looks so nice with the shades of blue and that pop of purple. Such a great idea. My heart also aches for the many innocent humans that suffer.
