Faith Based …

In the mail yesterday:

I don’t know what “Faith Based Internal Medicine Practice” is; DH thought it was something to do with faith healing …

Which brings me to something the Kid mentioned a few weeks ago after coming home from babysitting: “All their books are Christian-themed!”  I suppose that was something quite different from her daily experience; we have books — lots and lots of books — but none could really be considered Christian-themed in the sense that is commonly used today (although I do own several volumes of early Christian studies).  I must admit I don’t quite understand the need to have “Christian-themed” books, or perhaps it is just that the few books I have dipped into that were labeled as such were rather poorly written.  It seems superfluous, somehow — but then, I suppose people just need to be smacked on the head.  Someday, I hope the Kid understands that there is a world of difference between religion and faith.

Modern Affair

For the Kid’s godmother, the Modern Affair Quilt:

Fabric: “Modern Affair,” by Patricia Bravo for Art Gallery

Pattern: Scrappy, with scrappy binding, finished size ~ 60″ x 70″

Batting: Kyoto Bamboo Blend (50% Bamboo-50% Cotton)

Quilting: Machine quilted on Bella, the Gammill Longarm Optimum machine with Statler Stitcher, using edge-to-edge paisley pattern

What I learned: The Modern Affair line is absolutely gorgeous, and I love the blues and greens, but I need to work on contrast …  There is always a next quilt, right?
