As I lay abed slowly gaining consciousness this morning, I decided that even though I needed to do a bit of housework and unpack a few things, that I would relax too today.
And that is exactly how my day has gone.
I unpacked and put away a few more things from retreat. I've laid this baby quilt out that I finished quilting and binding. It just needs to be hand stitched down.
I added these two postage stamp blocks to my small collection. I like to do one or two here and there; eventually they will make a quilt.
I tacked these blocks up on my design wall to have a quick look. I spent some time cutting fabric at retreat and sewed a few blocks to see how it will go. This quilt is for my brother and his wife. The colors are chosen to match their bedroom. I notice that the photo is slightly blurred. I'll do a better one as the blocks multiply.
I've been thinking about this piece all weekend and I gave myself a bit of time before going for a walk to free motion stitch some background foliage, more layers to come.
My walk on the trail was soothing. The chickadees came to my hand for their seeds and ad I walked, I noticed all sorts of details that I'd not seen before.
My husband will soon be home for supper, a lentil and Swiss chard soup that is simmering on the stove.
