I want to show you a couple of photos from my trail walk yesterday. Every time I wonder if I should carry the camera, I find some new beautiful detail or a view and a color that catches my eye.
Yesterday, while taking this photo of birch trees (I wonder how many of them I have?), I noticed an exquisite little bird's nest.
Of course I couldn't resist photographing more chickadees even though I told myself I don't need them!
Some of you might remember the last birch piece I was working on with all the machine quilting. Well, I had really gotten into free motioning some maple leaves as an accent, but before I knew it I had covered up too much of the birches. I really wasn't happy with it but didn't want to waste it so for the last few weeks, I've been meticulously picking it out, an activity I could only do by day.
I got it all out and carefully redid a bit of red here and there. I'm happy now. Thanks Wendy for affirming what I knew was best! I've started adding a bit of hand embroidered leaves to it. I think that's just about it.
Also, I have a giveaway going on this week sponsored by Sew Sisters quilt shop. You'll find details in yesterdays post.
