Dear Jane M-2 Duff's Bluff

The last block in column 2, Duff's Bluff, is in the works.  I think it is going to be beautiful when it is done.  I love this blue on blue batik; it reminds me of a painting of a celestial sky.  Most of the dark blue was edited out for this block, but I am going to find another block later where the dark blue can be the focal point.  Ah, the joy of batiks!

Well, we had our new vehicle checked out by a mechanic and it passed muster, so I guess we will keep it.  Larry was pleased since it takes about four hours to purchase a car these days.  I have yet to drive it myself, maybe this weekend I will get behind the wheel.

I pulled out the directions to Clue 5 of Grand Illusion this week since that is my next project.  I had forgotten the printer was running out of ink when I printed the pages.  My colors are so far off I had to study other people's completed quilts to determine what was what.  As far as I can tell on my set of directions, white means turquoise, deep yellow means yellow, pale yellow means pink and black is black.  Believe me, I wrote this down right on the picture!
