Writing the Day Away
Greetings, everyone! I hope your week is off to a good start. It promises to be a busy one here at Ashton House with another big magazine project starting up. I'm switching gears from editing to writing today. Over the next several weeks, I will be writing the majority of the content for Victoria magazine's special holiday publication. I truly love working with the staff as they always give me fun articles to write and are so appreciative of what I do. I've been a faithful reader of Victoria since high school. The photography is so beautiful that I have actually kept all the issues they've ever published. I especially love their annual blue-and-white issue.
With the hectic schedule, there are only a few moments to sneak in some quilting. For some reason, I'm in a Log Cabin mood right now. Here is a photo of my small Log Cabin quilt (about 30 inches wide) with 4-inch finished blocks. The fabrics are all from an early Windham Fabrics 1800s reproduction line. In retrospect, I probably should have paper-pieced them but I'm okay with the way it turned out. The quilt now hangs in my upstairs hallway with many other quilts. It's like having my own private gallery since no one else sees them up there!
