I'm Back...

but then you all knew that. However, I am still in a jet-lagged haze. It is a good thing that I got my water piece well under way before I left. I hope to finish it this week. Here is some gorgeous water for you to ponder - the incredible Dead Sea. It is very turquoise and lovely. Those are the mountains of Jordan in the distance.

That turquoise-y blue and sand color combo is my new favorite.

And well it should be as it is about to become part of your day to day existence. I was so wowed by the use of turquoise in the architecture of Israel - against the earthy colors of the buildings, it just popped. I know their will be a quilt with that theme coming out of my experience.

Lazy Gal Tonya found the color combo in babylonian art too:

It looks so modern, and yet it's ancient. Imagine these with an accent of chocolate brown...
