All day, we’ve had quick 5 min downpours and then sun; currently, the sun is shining...
I took a quick walk in between raindrops early this afternoon...and collected a an oak and a couple maple leaves. Do you remember collecting leaves when you were in elementary school? And then, rushing to the library to find a book to help you identify the leaves?
I spent the afternoon working on Shades of Trees: affixing rectangles (2.25 ” x .75”) to the background fabric; next up: stitching the little rectangles... Making this little quilted piece is very much like putting together a 1000+ pieces puzzle...and I’m not a puzzle person. I think the difference is I am creating the piece as I learn the technique/process and therefore, my attention is captive. Whatever, it’s fun...and relaxing.
And now, that the day is over, I’m going to kick off my shoes, read and relax!
