I know I have been absent again for the last few weeks… but for the first time in a couple of months I have actually got to participate in Friday Night Sew In. It’s a good thing too because, as you’ll see I have sewing that needs to be done.
These are the two things I accomplished for FNSI. They are both swap blocks for the Canadians Quilt Bee that I am involved with. One is the November block (yes indeed I am late); the other is the December block.
Sewing machine block for Dominique.
Improv tree block for M-R.
What am I doing all the time that is keeping me so busy? Well for instance today was Christmas bird count day. My friend and I were sent out to walk down the tracks to Tin Cup Creek to try and see grouse or ptarmigan. We saw two ravens. Then we walked around downtown and saw two more ravens and two magpies. Lots of birds at my feeder though. We are almost at the December solstice. It is tomorrow (the 21st) at 23:03. Then the daylight starts to come back a few minutes a day. Dusk was starting to fall at 3:40 in the afternoon. Of course the grey skies didn’t help.
I hope you are having a wonderful “day before the winter solstice”.
