Cancer quilt, spirals and moon snail?
There is a common thread here,
having to do with circular movement.
The spirals on my work-in-progress quilt are obviously circular, and I just added the beads last week. It needs more quilting and maybe more beads before I call it done.
The quilt top below is one that I helped my Comfort Quilt group put together a few weeks ago. I took the finished blocks home and set them together and added a border. Next it goes to the volunteer quilters and binders.Our group gets together each month to make quilts that we give to local cancer patients. I've written more about this group here, here, and here.
The circular motion relates to
sending out good karma,
or "what goes around comes around."

And finally, the amazing moon snail!
Note the spiraling of its shell.
I took this photo and video a few days ago at Penrose Point State Park, where our Harbor WildWatch group shared the wonders of low tide with 60 first graders on a field trip. The ooey-gooey moon snail was a big hit.
For a real treat, watch the sloooow motion of the snail creeping forward on the beach in the video. You have to look closely at the bottom right of the snail. (This is my first attempt to put a video on the blog, so let me know how it works.)
Have a colorful day
