A run to town was made for some supplies.
I don’t take running to town lightly as it is a 25 minute drive there, and another 25 minute drive back – but necessity prevailed and down the mountain we went.
I tend to watch where I am walking, being the klutz that I am.
I found a wadded up dollar bill in a puddle in my path!
There has to be a life lesson in this, don’t you think?
Something like “If you aren’t paying attention you might just step over money.” LOL! I know it is only a dollar. But my inner child smiled, picked it up, looked around for the person who may have lost it, and finding no one, put it in my pocket.
“Was coming to town worth a dollar?” I asked myself on the drive home. As the sun came out highlighting the beautiful dog woods and redbud trees that are blooming brilliantly in spring splendor, as I marveled at how the leaves have emerged on the trees seemingly overnight since I arrived on Thursday afternoon ---I answered my own question.
YES! Getting away from the machine, from the project, from the deadlines and seeing what is really going on in nature as spring makes its changes known is worth FAR MORE than that dollar. It’s priceless.
The deadlines can wait. Get out and enjoy spring!
And we did!
Doesn’t Sadie look pitiful standing there? I just wanted to set the leash down and get a happy picture of her, but when I tell her to STAY she thinks she is in trouble. Poor thing! So I did a quicky 20 second video clip instead!
Favorite block! Flamingos!
It’s been really fun making these little blocks with whatever fabric can be found. Strange yet fun combinations, everything better when mixed all together.
Some more favorites!
I got all of the remaining blocks made and sashed yesterday. I love the blue print with the dog and the stitchy words. Reminds me of Sadie! CUTE!
All present and accounted for except for the last block which is still under the presser foot of my machine. I am now in the process of cleaning up, and packing away. Headed home this morning!
I'm still working on how to set these and it will have to wait until I am back from Chicago and Wichita! It has time to percolate. I know there will be sashing of some kind, but just what remains to be seen!
Tomorrow morning’s flight BOARDS at 5:30am. Egad. Here we go again!
Quiltville Quote of the Day!
Vintage many trips around the world quilt found in North Carolina.
Being a giver by nature, and wanting everyone to be happy can sometimes create a conflict. To achieve balance there has to be times when we stop putting everyone else first. There is nothing left to give if our own vessel is empty.
Taking this extra couple of days up here has filled my vessel full.
Happy Saturday, everyone!
