I finished the churn dash quilt and quilted it with fans. The blocks were exchange blocks and were all different - a great variety! I wanted to use a lot of the 1 3/4" HSTs that I had in a baggie and decided to add a cheddar border first. The HSTs were left overs from other projects but I still had to make more to have enough to go around. Then I added the yellow border. I really love it!
I might be able to get a better picture later, but this gives you an idea of what it looks like.
In the mornings I walk with 2 neighbors and I thought I would share some of the local scenery. We live almost in the middle of town, but there is a ravine that goes through the town just about a block from our house. On our walk, we pass a huge tree that once was a gathering place for native Americans. The tree must be over 100 years old. You can see my 2 walking buddies looking down into the ravine to see how high the water in the creek has gotten as we have had a lot of rain lately. I just love the tall fir trees!
|Are we in a forest? No! We're in the middle of McMinnville, OR.|
On our walk yesterday we saw lots of mushrooms that we haven't seen before.
|These mushrooms were very tiny.|
I hope you all are able to enjoy some of nature during this time. It is something that can give us joy and some perspective about life. And I also hope you will be able to gather with your families for Thanksgiving. We had a small gathering yesterday to celebrate our son's birthday, and since he will be out of town next week for Thanksgiving, we had our Thanksgiving dinner/celebration at the same time with our son, his daughter (and her husband) and son, who are all in their 20s. We had a wonderful visit with them.
