Cool Summer Colors. Vibrant Fabric Colors

A little road trip off the beaten path. 
Not the coastal route with tourists & cars 
& clusters of restaurants and hotels.
This was roller coaster ribbon roads, 
forests, farms, scattered country homes.
Occasional views of distant fields 
& faraway mountains.
 A fabric store in the city, about 50 miles away.
I've been luxuriating in assembling 
vibrant colors of cloth.

And yesterday I basked in 
cool country colors 
on a wet summer day. 


  1. Mentally, I'm traveling the roads of Maine with you... Sounds much more pleasant than the hot, steamy roads of Florida right now. Since we've been staying at home, little field trips like yours have become so precious.

  2. Your sketchbook page is beautiful, quilt block as well.

  3. Rita I adore your sketch page. It is so inspiring. It looks like you found some lovely fabric to work into something beautiful. Take care friend. Hugs!

  4. Sounds like my kind of day!

  5. I love it when you show your painting journal! And oh, how fun to get the fabrics you like. I love your quilt square. Happy Fourth.

    And on another note, thank you for your wonderful comment on my post about the book about the resistance and Paris in WWII. What a story you have to tell. Your parents sound like remarkable people in every way possible -- and brave, strong souls who lived through a terrible time. I respect them tremendously. What models to have in your life. Thank you so much for sharing that with me.

  6. Love your sketch page rambles ❤️
    Bravo 👏👏👏

  7. Nice journal page..Love your description of the back roads..roller coaster ribbon roads...and you are definitely enjoying the colorful fabrics..


Thank you for your comments! They mean a lot to me!
