I got quite a bit done today. Did a little baking and then on to my studio where I spent a good bit of the day working on a scrappy project. I am doing the blocks with the small pieces first so it is slow going right now but it is coming together. I think this will be a charity quilt. It depends on how big it turns out to be. I am also taking part in a Virtual Quilt Retreat starting this Sunday. We have been given the instruction for fabric amounts and cutting so I have that done. I like that this event takes part over a few days because Sunday and Monday are both days when I am not home: Sunday church, Monday quilting. This quilt may also be given away.
I took Heidi for a walk through the bush late afternoon. Sometime, I get overtaken by feelings of depression. No cause. It just happens. When it does, I find the best remedy is being outside. A lot of the leaves in our maple bush are now on the ground so it was lovely walking through the colours and the crunching sound. I just wandered around, not going anywhere in particular. I took advantage of any opening in the brush but avoided the trail we had made through the property. I like to explore new or less travelled areas and today we went along the edge of the wetland. There was enough climbing over trees and up ridges that it was a good workout and I came back feeling happy and blessed.
Tomorrow, is the second Fiction Friday so don't forget to check in for another quilt related story.
