Today I had lunch with a colleague down on the waterfront, and then we wandered over to Fiber Arts Northwest, where the Start The Year Off Right sale was still going on. There were a lot of fun things I saw there that I’d love to get my hands on, but I restrained myself and came away with nothing but some Wildfoote sock yarn in “Brown Sugar,” which is actually a combination of browns, gold, orange, blue, black and green. It’s so fun looking, that it might take priority over the sock scarf.

I also saw a few fun things that I think I could use as part of the Quilting Arts Magazine 2006 Calendar Contest. A couple of us at work entered last year and it was lots of fun. Although I never got past the “submission” stage, someone I work with was a finalist. This year the theme is “what’s your utopia?” Entries must be small embellished quilts of 12″x12″ to 14″x14″. It took me awhile to come up with my utopia because I didn’t want one that a lot of other people would submit. And now that I have, I’m not sure I’ll have time to complete it. But if I do, I’ll post a picture.

    • We operate under a jury system in this country, and as much as we complain about it, we have to admit that we know of no better system, except possibly flipping a coin.
