Fabrics selected and loosely organized by color – ROYGBIV …
Patterns for each block printed on paper designed specially for foundation paper printing …
Morning Glory Studio – aka my sewing room – organized. Touching and putting things away was a great tactile experience that infused me with creative energy and the desire to actually spend time there – now that I have restored outer order. Gretchen Rubin is right: “outer order is indeed inner calm.”
I’m also gathering all sorts of ideas – fiction titles – for summer reading. Last week I received Stacy Abrams’ While Justice Sleeps and a friend surprised me by sending The Great Circle! That was a delightful treat.
Not much else to share. I’m still wearing my mask when I go out among the crowds or for a walk. Joining Kat and friends for Unraveled Wednesday.
#walk 20 in 21 … is the hashtag Gretchen Rubin created to encourage followers to walk 20 minutes daily. You can even download a tracker . Yesterday, I took a later than usual afternoon walk , about 5 PM. The weather was perfect – 67 degrees. My usual 25 minutes stretched to 52 min, I walked 1.36 miles round trip and was greeted by an abundance of lovely flowers.

#21 for 2021 … also created by Gretchen, replaces new year’s resolutions. In short, a “list of 21 concrete things one wants to accomplish by year’s end .” I’m still working on my list – it’s in a general state of revision and flux; the latter as new things – the dandelions – crop up in life. Currently, on my list are the two hashtags described above and
Make the Confetti Quilt and finish 3 other quilting projects
Finish 3 knitting projects
Finish clearing out the garage and basement storage area
Complete stash bashing craft and sewing projects and supplies
Get new eyeglasses (and eye doctor)
Right now, it’s time for me to finish this post and have a bite to eat. The clock moves on and as my mother was fond of sayin’, “time’s awastin’ kiddie.”
