Although I am continuing to draw one index card per day, I am still making time to work on my The Greekness quilt. It is of course not as extensive as Homer’s epic tales of the journey of Odysseus or the war of Iliad, but this Greek alphabet quilt does remind me of the them as I continue to work on it. As before, I am still making two letters per sewing session, and they are still very easily doable since I am working with only two colours.
iota, kappa, lambda
mu, nu, xi
I think xi is probably the hardest one so far. However, I minimized the seam alignments on the pattern, so I was still able to finish it with surprising ease. I am also more than halfway through the letters – 14 finished, 10 more to make.
In the meantime Mary Emmens sent me a picture of this camera she made from my pattern. It was for a wedding present. I do love the black and white palette of this pillow. Hers looks so fabulous, it makes me a little sad that I haven’t made one for myself yet.
I can’t thank you all enough for your wonderful words on my first set of icad drawings, they were so encouraging! I look forward to sharing more with you.
Until next time,
