Today, I slept in a bit, made eggs for breakfast and then went for a trail walk in a different place than usual.
The riotous colours have faded to more neutral and soft greys and holds. It’s quiet and soothing.
After my walk, I headed out to visit the in laws. My mother in law gifted me with one of her quilts. She was reluctant in the past to give me one, believing that I could make one better than her. (I know your reading this!) I don’t believe this and besides quilts are more about making something handcrafted with live, given with love and really appreciated.
I will cherish sleeping under this quilt.
When I returned home, I headed to the studio for a bit where I hooped up 2 layers of green tulle and commenced to free motion stitch the base for some tree 🌲 moss.
A couple more layers are required.
In the evenings while tv watching, I’m making socks. The grey ones are done with Merino wool for my daughter and grandson, Ollie.
I started a third pair which I’ve nearly finished made with a Christmas wool edition.
For my outdoor activity yesterday, I picked more of our apples - most of which my husband already picked - and picked some kale, a wee bit of Swiss chard and final bits of lettuce.
We are lucky to have a cold room where we were able to keep apples through the spring last year. After looking on line, I wrapped every apple in newspaper and packed into Rubbermaid boxes. It worked well.
