Finally, after a dew rainy days the sun came out today; even if it was a bit windy, it still made one feel good. I did a couple small errands this morning, had lunch with friends, and rested. After dinner I grabbed my poles and my camera and went for a walk on part of the NB Trail with my husband. When I was out the other night, I had taken pictures with a small pocket camera that came out blurred, and I wanted to try again with another camera.
This tree stump with the tiny seedlings growing out of it caught my eye. It's like a whole little world growing on the top. I can imagine the tiny creatures that could live there.
The second tree stump is a little smaller with beautiful, delicate mosses growing on it. In some ways nothing ever really dies-- it just gets recycled.

Yesterday, I decided that some of my fabric bins needed cleaning, and I found a stack of triangles that were ends from another quilt. (I will show that one later once I iron it and take a picture of it). It needs to be sandwiched and quilted, which I do on my sewing machine, usually set up on my kitchen table. I stacked them into lights and darks (more or less) and randomly started to put a few together. I haven't worked on a regular quilt since last summer, besides a baby quilt. I just felt like it, and it was the perfect thing to lift my spirits. I'm not sure how big it can get; there are not that many pieces...we'll see.

Your photos are beautiful and reminds me of Avatar. There could be a whole little world down under those seedlings.
