Summer Solstice Goddess

"Solstice Goddess" by Sherrie Spangler
The sun came through for today's

I took my beads out on the front porch -- finally able to get some sun on my winter legs -- and put the finishing touches on a little Summer Solstice Goddess quilt. It's tiny, only 3 1/2 x 5 1/2 inches. I used scraps of my hand-painted fabric, snippets of lame and tulle, couched black YLI Candlelight thread to outline the shapes, and beads.

My potted back-deck daisy turned its face to the sun.

And the water sure looked different today than over the weekend. Above is the blue Wollochet Bay under a blue sky for the first day of summer. Below is a gray Henderson Bay under a very gray sky just three days ago.

If you click here, you can read last year's Summer Solstice blog, which shows a lot of my summery quilts.
Have a colorful solstice!

What an itty bitty spider! As to the contrasting skies - that'd be the Pacific NW summer all right.
