Weekend Inspiration

So, I realize that it was kind of a slow week here blog-wise. Truth is, after 3 weekends of quilt-showing (with the last being in St. Louis) I was burnt out and fell into my new book. I managed to finish it on Wednesday and felt like I could finally surface yesterday.

Then, last night I went to the see Denyse Schmidt give her lecture for the Modern Quilt Guild, and it was really good. For some reason I found it very soothing for my overworked brain this week, and thought I would share some quilts here today. Although you have probably seen them before, I"m sure. I also added in a little extra surprise for you. See if you can spot it!

J and I are off to Tulsa this weekend to see Neil Young and Crazy Horse. Anybody know anything about Tulsa? Where we should go? What we should eat?

In Tulsa, you should go to the Center of the Universe; it's really cool. "The center of the universe is an acoustic anomaly; when one stands in the center of the circle and makes a noise, that noise is echoed back several times louder than it was made. Imagine dropping a small pin and expecting to hear a tiny 'tink' as it hits the floor. Instead, the sound the pin makes is more like the loud crash of a gong. While this in itself is amazing, the truly amazing thing is that no one standing outside of the circle can hear a thing. A foghorn could be going off in the center of the circle, and those on the outside wouldn’t hear it. Or rather, that’s how the legend goes."

I forgot to mention that Tulsa also has the world's largets praying hands, which is also a "must-see" in my book.
