A Week Off

Lovely to sleep in with my dog this morning,  contemplating my week off from work.  Making plans in  my head for a variety of ways to go on our Cutting Edge Quilt Group's Challenge of "Montana de Oro."  Hoping to make headway on some of those ideas this week, if nothing else eliminating the ones that won't work for me.

Morning Glory and Super Moon Spotting

Nice to have a three day weekend. Not nice to have 3 migraines so far this weekend. Not sure what's causing them, Maybe it's stress and anxiety over the election, consuming too much Trader Joe's Tiramisu, change of seasons, who knows? Just taking it easy this weekend, can't do much else.

Emptied out all my old dyes from the little fridge in the barn. Getting ready to stir up some new ones to do some dying over Thanksgiving break.

Beautiful  Morning Glory blooming n the back yard, planted who knows when, has been a lovely surprise to enjoy.

A historic super moon is to arrive Monday night. 
It will be the closest full moon to the earth since 1948. 
Here's a picture of it taken Friday night from my backyard.  Looking forward to checking that  out.

Quilting Shibori-Stitched Resist Piece

I've been working on hand quilting a shibori-stitched resist piece made quite awhile ago.
  Getting close to finishing it.

I'm using pearl cotton using a big stitch and some French knots here and there.
