and happy chinese new year for those  on the lunar calendar.

Jan. 1, 2012 at the family inn…

the husband’s cousin is running the inn now, following in his father’s father’s father’s footsteps.

the cousin and his wife and our “little cousin” treat us so well while we are there…
in the final phase… illustration…

sandwiched and basted and ready to be embellished.

i love the whole piecing process, but even more i love the embellishing…
scraps added to the quilt top

i really like how this turned out…

you never know how it’s going to look until you try!!
little tiny scraps on a little piece of batting…

just playing around with little bits of color….

abstract and fluffy!!
anyhoo… the new moon on the 23rd starts the beginning of the lunar new year…the year of the dragon!
ending on Feb. 6th  with the full snow/hunger  moon….
we are expecting snow next week….
