Starry Night?

Take a look at these bee-yoo-tee-ful quilt squares. This was a block swap from the quilting forum. We were to make a star block out of batik fabric with the same creamy fabric for the background. I made 9 of the middle left star and sent 8 to the swap hostess. So did 8 other quilters. Just a few days ago I received these in the mail. Pretty, huh? This is a possible layout. I don't know exactly what I'll do, but I really like 'em!

You might have noticed the creamy honey color between the quilt squares. What is that, you ask? It's our new carpet! Yes, it's installed and I really like it! Somehow it makes the room look like the light is on.

Okay, big brag time: last night's Mission Improvible show. Well, if you missed it, you missed plenty. I gave a lecture on Galileo and Tod translated it into mime--folks were laughing so hard, I hardly got a word out! I sang a torch song to the writer of Afoot and Afield in San Diego, Jerry Schad. Scooter did his disturbingly hilarious interpretive dance while I recited a beat poem, "Squeezed." I got to practice my Parisian accent for "Cirque de la Lune." (And I gotta tell you, it's hard to exaggerate Parisian French!) We had nine people in the show and every one of them shone. Starring moments:
  • Mamie's intros & playing with the audience (I think they wanted to take her home!)
  • Steve "I think my head is stuck!"
  • Marc made "Birds fly upside down" make sense
  • Scooter's dance (and coconuts!)
  • Tod's impersonations of Elvis and Ozzy Osborne
  • Carl and his wrench
  • James in Quick Cuts
  • Matt's tiger
