… t’was a morning filled with lots of color, beginning with another spectacular sunrise. I can never see too many and am grateful for absolutely every one…
… to add to my pleasure, my new Vera Bradley iPad case looked just stupendous with the yellow alstroemeria that are at least a week old… a flower bouquet I can never have too many and am grateful for absolutely every one that greets me in the morning…
… after MSQT, I deliberately took myself to my sewing studio and “quilted” my second convergence quilt piece. The quilting – if you are not a quilter – is called stitch-in-the ditch and follows the seam lines of the quilted pieces. My next steps are:
- bury the threads from the quilting;
- sew the binding strips together;
- machine stitch one edge to the front of the quilt perimeter;
- decide whether to hand or machine stitch the back side of the binding.
I’m aiming to have this piece in the finished column week’s end…
…on the reading front, I finished Gretchen Rubin’s Outer Order Inner Calm. This is a quick read – just 215 pages filled with all sorts of pithiness – and one I think/expect to read more than once, again, soon! I was amused when I read the suggestion, p.18: “Use technology to clear clutter. ” Gretchen asks: “Why hang on to possessions replaced by technology? and then states … “(Though it does seem like sacrilege not to own a physical copy of a dictionary.) I so agree!
Time for me to create some order at my workstation, take a walk and listen to Gretchen’s latest Happier podcast, bury some threads on the convergence quilt and tackle a few more items on my list. No time to procrastinate!
Joining Kat and friends here!

I am so excited to see your quilt come together! And, yes – there were glorious skies here this morning as well.
I so agree with you regarding the sunrise! There have been a couple of stellar ones this week! Happy you’re having such a productive week…and yes to the dictionary! (Mine is from my high school graduation in 1977…could be time for an update 🙂 )
Thanks Patty. I too am delighted with my productivity and “tired!”
It sounds like you are on a roll! 🙂 I’m looking forward to seeing your quilt next week. XO
Those bright yellow flowers sure bring some happiness to a room.
Indeed! And of course you know yellow is my favorite color!

Like you, I can never see too many sunrises or sunsets (or your photos of them), and I can never have too many fresh flowers around. I didn’t expect to read Gretchen’s new book, but picked up a copy this afternoon, and am looking forward to working my way through it.
Sounds like you had a very productive day. The yellow flowers are just your color. I will look forward to seeing your quilt as it is finished.
LOVE the colors on this quilt piece! I don’t follow Gretchen, I’ll check her out! ❤
oh… that quilt 🙂 and of course those Happy Alstroemeria!!
The colour of your ipad cover against the yellow flowers and your beautiful quilt is so uplifting – how spendid to have this greet you every morning. I hadn’t come across that type of stitiching, and my Mum would have been intrigued. Sounds like you need a very steady hand?
I like Gretchen Rubin . I read her happiness book. I think I”ve seen her give a TED talk. 🙂
