This & That

Our skies have been smoke filled from the Wallow fire in AZ, creating some eerie, other worldly sunsets.  Yesterday the wind was blowing in such a way that we had relatively clear skies, but then in the evening when the wind quit blowing, you could actually see the smoke pouring over the Manzano mountains that separate us from Albuquerque.  

I finished a couple more quilts and delivered three quilts to Dr. Kaufman.  I did freehand designs on all of them.  Seems like I'm on a roll.  Thanks Yetta for the quilt tops.
 I used the leftover backing to quilt some pillows.  I've been wanting to make pillow covers for these pillows for some time.  Pat gave me just perfect fabric and I'm happy with the bright, colorful addition to our little window seating area.  
 My allergies are in overdrive no doubt exacerbated by the smoky air.  I'll need to stay in the sewing room with the AC running.  Fortunately, I have three big quilts to do, two for Pat and one for Yetta.

Quilts turned out really well and I love your pillows. I'll have to give some thought as to how to use my panels.
