Snow shoeing and a wee bit of sewing

We are having spring like weather this weekend. It is amazing! We went snow shoeing this morning and wore only a single layer fleece top. The only slightly uncomfortable thing was that the snow and ice was melting and dripping onto us from the trees. Most of the trail is in the woods so we got a bit wet. a little screaming was heard when a clump of snow went down my inside my sweater!
I forgot the camera , but Gord took this photo for me with his cell phone. I might jsut have to try it in fiber.
After lunch, Gord went out to his 'driving range' while I came into my sewing room. This was my view. I had to suppress a few giggles.
While I had my machine switched back to straight sewing, I thought I'd put together the batik pillow shams that I'm making for my sister-in-law who I made the quilt for last year. It's a bit big so I will make a larger seam and probably top-stitch a bit of a flange. That should do it. Also, I have regular sized pillows. I should check what size she'd like first.
Have a great weekend! I hope your weather is as beautiful wherever   you live in the world!

I really like how that pillow turned out.

I love the lone leaf. There is an oak in my neighbor's yard with brown leaves too, amongst all of the white.
