enjoying the weather

My husband and I had a most wonderful walk in the woods yesterday. The sun was shining and the temperature was just right. We had a lovely quiet day to ourselves.
 Here I am wearing the wool leg warmers that I just finished knitting.

After lunch, I finally got all the borders on my little scrap quilt.

I'm not sure I'm perfectly happy with where the  flying geese ended up. I wanted them to be quite asymmetrical in their placement but it didn't quite end up that way. I am terrible at measuring and planning. It's not worth it to rip it all out though. I'm done with it until I have to quilt it which I think I will attempt on my basic sewing machine. For now it's going into the closet, as I still have my winter quilt to finish machine quilting.
It was another beautiful day today. Since I don't like to walk 2 days in a row due to knee and hip problems, we decided to do a few errands downtown and go for lunch at the cafe. Gord planned to spend the rest of the afternoon puttering outside when he got a 'call in' to work. He is supposed to be on vacation but I guess there was no one else to call. It really messes up the week though. So, I'm going to spend the rest of my time in my sewing room where I'm cutting pieces for a another small quilt.

Asymmetrical looks good to me. It is more like the pioneer quilts, it landed where ever it landed in a scrap quilt. I tend to like the happening in accidental placement.

Quilt looks good. Love the winter pics...who could not love winter; just look how pretty it is!

Love the snow. Believe it or not, New Years Day around here is supposed to be 10 with rain. That means that all the snow (and there is very little of it) will all be gone. Great looking leg warmers.
