Yesterday we had a tsunami warning that thankfully did not get as big as was predicted. It was good to see the evacuation of the areas close to the water worked very well. The sirens went off at 6am and I thought tornado, having grown up in Minnesota this was an ingrained response. Then I quickly thought tsunami and turned on the tv. What we did get was very interesting to watch and the fastness of the water moving in and out really gets your attention. It is easy to see why a large tsunami would cause so much destruction.
Happy stitching to all, Barbara

In the last couple of years a few of you have asked me to make a pattern for a manta ray and I have finally done it. Maddie, this delightful graceful creature is finally done. This is the third in a series of ocean wall hangings. Under the Sea-With Me-Manta Ray can be combined with the other two small Under the Sea quilts, Yellow Tang and Parrotfish for a nice ocean scene. I will be making a combined quilt and when it is done it will be posted. Would a pieced background using light blues look good? The fabrics would have to be very close in value so as not to make the quilt too busy. It is something I have to think about and any imput from you is always appreciated.
