I’ve been making a real effort to post on Monday’s.  Routine is good right?  Last week was just too full of additions in the unexpected category and something had to go.

So here’s a week in review.

Wednesday I was talking about my love of the dahlias and how we had them at our wedding and it dawned on me that it was our 10th wedding anniversary.  We were out for dinner, so I guess we celebrated unknowingly!  Our focus has been on the family at large so it just slipped our minds.

 I was Portland bound for the week teaching.  My students were awesome and as usual I was involved in class and took not a single photo.

I did manage to take a picture of my gin and tonic at Bollywood Theater though…I’m not sure we want to analyze that:)

It was fun to catch up with a few Portland friends and of course eat good food.

Carolyn Friedlander’s quilts are on exhibit at Modern Domestic  through October 10th, so I made a stop there.  I envy her simplicity AND complexity in design and her visionary quilting.  I wish I had an eye for that kind of finish.

I finished up with week with an Open Studio at Island Quilter.  Good times with some of my favorite people.  Now I’m starting to think about packing my quilts in suitcases for my trip to the Kansas City Modern Quilt Guild.  For those that have inquired, they have open the classes up to non-guild members now.  Wish me luck on that suitcase thing.

Jefe has been non-stop on the French drain around my studio.

I need some help though and thought maybe I could reach out to you all for some ideas on my first world problem.

I have to buy windows and a door for the studio above.  The shutters will go and the house will get painted.  The reddish brick is a total throw off for me when it comes to color and my gutters are brown, though they could be painted.

So my question is, what color window frames should I get and what colors go well with the red brick?  I’m sort of leaning towards black frames and a really dark teal for the house.

Any suggestions?  Pictures?

P.S. Life is good 😉
