I've always felt at home in the woods and have experienced a special kind of peacefulness there. (ok, ok so these days I'm more of a lodge kind of gal, but I still love to walk in the woods even if I don't sleep under the stars anymore.)

Here is the WIP part of my post. My pieced abstract landscape is coming along slowly. I am still fiddling with the arrangment of the blocks, and also working out what form the lower center of the quilt will take. I'm leaning towards more flowers. I'm also wondering if maybe I should make the quilt smaller, using just the upper portion with the tree blocks. Right now it doesn't flow the way I want it to. I guess that's why it's "work in progress".

The weekend is almost officially here, and I hope to get back to work on my current piece. On my lunch hour I ran up to the fabric store (yes, it is dangerously close) and picked up some more "sky blues" just to be sure of enough variety . I picked up a nice King Tut multi-colored blue thread as well.
It seems that even with the best of intentions I am too busy or too tired to get back into my work room at the end of a long day. A little time is better than none, though, and this morning I found myself wide awake at 3am. I decided to go to my room and work for a bit, and so I did, getting back to bed and to sleep for another couple of hours at 5 am. Waking up at 7am, I had the fastest shower in history and made it out the door to work by 7:35am. Maybe this will be my new pattern, after all, it's not like I'm sleeping.

I had a fine day with my family and went out for a delicious seafood dinner at the Fish Market. They have the very best wonderful fresh seafood, hot sourdough bread, and a New England clam chowder to die for. We had a nice little bottle of Pinot with our dinner and walked along the water afterwards. Lovely, lovely. I am a lucky woman.

This was the most touching gift. The pretty little sweater and booties were made by great grandma Clara as a gift for Barb when Amy was born. Here, Amy's mother Barb passes it on for Clara's great great grandchild to use. It is still lovely and soft and in wonderful condition. Barb also prepared a beautiful gift basket full of baby things. The basket itself was originally a gift from Amy's grandma Adelene. I'm sure they both were with us in spirit that day. I loved that Barb thought to do these very special things.
