Just before supper last night I happened to look
out my studio window to see this...
I dashed out with my camera to try to get some
pictures. These are turkey vultures and this
was only a very small portion of the numbers
that were flying lazily over and around the
Did you know....that a group of vultures is called either a committee, a venu or a volt? In flight they are called a kettle, and when feeding together they are a carcass? I didn't either....until I looked it up. It was a very impressive sight anyway!

There is a wonderful post about studio organization
on Sew Many Ways today. Her studio is a
lesson in how to get the most out of a space
and there are absolutely dozens of great ideas
you can adapt to your own area.

Finally, here is the section of the crazy quilt purse
that I finished working on today...
And here is a closeup....
Today I did the seams surrounding the leopard.
The seam to the left of the cat and the pink one to the
right are both designs from Pam Kellogg's books.
The blue seam at the top(ish) is just alternating
blanket stitches and the seam below is two rows of
cretan stitch highlighted with some beads.
