Weeks 10 and 11

I'm more behind in posting than actually Flowers. Here are weeks 10 and 11. Week 12 is due tomorrow but I only have the inner petals finished. This is the first time I've been behind on the flowers. Though the novelty of the hexi's have worn off a bit, I'm still commited.

I spent the weekend visiting my grandmother in the hospital so this project just became a bit more personal.

African Prints

I was a guest speaker for a class on campus recently. This is the second semester the instructor invited me to speak about donor relations and stewardship in a fundraising context. I invited my intern to join me. She had taken the class previously and I encouraged her talk about her experiences while working in my office. A few days after the class, we received a package:

What amazing prints! Is was addressed to both of us and it turns out that my intern (who is not a quilter) loves animal prints. I've promised to use the fabric to make her a quilt. It will be her graduation present from me. Of course, I blurted that out to her before I realized that graduation is less than 9 weeks away. Oy.
