Yesterday morning I had a meeting in town, followed by limited errands, and a cautious drive home with brake troubles. I took my camera with me, as I always do. I’m always on the lookout for “stuff” to take pictures of. Landscapes, elements of landscapes, trees, birds, nature. I’m not so much into buildings as I am looking for inspiration in nature.
Here are a few of the things I found yesterday as I left my meeting:
Hopefully I’ll be back to posting quilting pictures soon, but for now, it’s “paperwork season”….. what is paperwork season? Why, year-end of course, that dreaded time when winter is at it’s coldest and paperwork surrounds a person demanding attention. But soon, so very soon, I’ll be back to full-time quilting and creating. I promise!
Of course, I could post pictures of my birdhouse in progress, but as I’ve mentioned to a few people, I’m it’s having “structural” issues and I need to shore up the walls a bit. And of course I need to felt a few wool eggs (surgical gloves in place to protect the hands) which is a new technique to me. But a technique I look forward to learning.
And all these thoughts of birdhouses and nests, combined with the colder than usual January temps and above average snowfalls here, have spurred thoughts of a new quilt. Drawings done, colors planned, one step at a time; until the dreaded paperwork is completely finished and then it’s full steam ahead to quilting and creating. I promise!
