K.L. always has a bit of a haze hanging over it but it wasn't too bad tonight and we could see for miles. The Twin Towers felt so close, as if we could reach out and touch it.
What great timing to be in this spot as it is the night of the Super Moon. (I kept calling it the Power Moon! )
What is the Super Moon? Google explains it as follows:
As the sun set and the moon rose more and more people arrived. We watched three young Muslim men. They ordered their non alcoholic drinks at about six thirty. They didn't touch them. Then at about seven they ordered plates of snacks. Again they did not touch them. Warren want over to chat to them and as expected they were waiting for seven thirty, when it is permissible for Muslims to break the fast and eat and drink. What patience! What self discipline! We were in such admiration as we enjoyed our second round of drinks!
We are back in K.L. And I am so happy as Nick has set up my own little sewing nook in my bedroom. Everybody asks why I don't use the dining room table but with white floors and This not being my home, the threads floating everywhere with the fan blowing makes for such a mess. I prefer not having to move the machine every day etc. etc. so NOW I put the air con on, close the door and I can create to my hearts content!
My aim is to make ten tops by the time we leave. The first pattern I have tried is disappearing nine patch. It is so effective. The "mistake" I have made is not using a contrast in the centre for effect and also I should have done more blocks instead of nine so the final quilt is bigger. Never mind. I will be doing more of these nine patch quilts as they are so effective.
