Sometimes I remind myself of the CBC radio show called Madly off In All Directions! I get an idea for something different for a change and I have to go with it. It's fun to just grab some fabrics and crazy piece them together, willy nilly, the scraps flying everywhere.
Maybe it had something to do with watching the Rose Bowl Parade.
I finished quilting the first one which is quite a bit larger than the next one although you can't tell from the pictures. The first one would be great on a small dresser or table. The second one is more mug mat size.
They're so cheery on a windy winter's day!
Just before lunch, at the warmest part of the day, we got out on the snowshoes for the first time.
I was so exhausted when we got home that my husband made me lunch and I curled up with my new afghan (made by my mother in law) to watch the parade.
I caught this little fellow near a feeder that someone had built into a tree. I always regret not carrying the telephoto lens.
It has been a perfect day, spending time in the outdoors with my husband and doing the things I love.
