In another galaxy...

I have spent the past few days looking for a start on a new piece. I tried one approach, rejected it, considered throwing out the idea, decided to transform it, explored many color choices, studied color theory a bit, and am back to my original colors with a much freer mind.

But, all of that process does not make for a very rivoting post. So, instead I invite you to step back for a moment. Take a few deep breaths and take a trip with me to gain perspective. It is easy to get caught up in our designs, our community, our country, our world. Here is 35 second pan of Galaxy NGC2841 (romantic name isn't it!) from the Hubble telescope. The galaxy is beautiful in its own right and a nice reminder that there is so much out there to explore and learn about.


  1. Wow! Looks like a meringue....with sparkles!

  2. Jewels in the sky! Just lovely. Thanks for sharing.

  3. What a beautiful theme for a quilt. I wonder if you can name a galaxy at the star registry ;)
