My favorite tree

 The morning sky has been perfect for tree photos...  Harvest season always puts enough dust in the air to create a fabulous sky:

Block #20: He Has Made Me Glad

 This song was written by Leona Bruce Von Brethorst.  An interesting fun fact about her is that she was a quilt maker!

Block #18: Shall We Gather at the River

 When I was young, my father would sing this song when one of us had to go to the bathroom and we were in a place where we couldn't go right away.  He was such a tease!

He was an avid fly fisherman and making his own flies.  It seemed fitting to include one of his flies on this quilt to represent this song.

Yarn Bombing

 I know this is nothing new, but it seems like a good and fun way to get rid of old yarn.  This winter when the ground is covered in snow, my walking path thru the woods will be a colorful delight!

Block 17: Onward Christian Soldiers

 I'm in the home stretch finishing blocks for the Bible Study Quilt!  #17 is 'Onward Christian Soldiers'.  Jon told me that this is his favorite hymn.

 New month, new challenge.  This month we are exploring patterns and layers.  I am also challenging myself to look for new colour combinations to get out of my colour rut!

Day 1 - Green, yellow and red.  Inspiration for this colour combination is a little bird ornament.  I am stamping and stenciling on fabric with the notion that I may actually use the fabric later on. Certainly some stitch could help some of the pieces!

Day 2 - My 'blue jay" series!  This little guy comes to my bird feeder each morning and it seem fitting to use him for inspiration.  He wouldn't turn around to photograph his back side where the colours are much more virbrant.

Day 3:  Yarn as inspiration.  A stroll thru the local craft store helped me discover many colour palettes to play with during the next few days.  I am not a knitter, but after finding this yarn, I may have to begin!
