Last night DH and I attended a concert called Joy at the Beach directed by Karen, a friend from my working days. The singing group was formed following Hurricane Ivan, which devastated the Pensacola Beach area, as a way of healing and a promise of rejuvenation. They have been presenting musical programs now for 7 years. It was a fun and refreshing program. And, based on the audience, Christmas is not just for children!
While in Pensacola we made our obligatory stop at Dunkin. As usual they had cool stuff for sale and we had to get this, a DD t-shirt. Now I admit that I don’t like Starbucks coffee (too bitter) but I found this really funny and so two of them came home with us.
Today I added something to our Christmas village scene. It is the quilt on the right, a feathered star quilt top I finished 2-3 years ago and still haven’t quilted it. I was very annoyed with the big blank blue wall and remembered that I had this “star” quilt that would just fit that space. What is funny is that Flight School, the quilt on the left, was first hung as a flimsy and then quilted after that Christmas. Maybe that bodes well for the Feathered Star.
Several times a day I walk in the woods with these two dogs.
Note that although we are all walking in the same woods, two of us are going in two different directions. Sometimes I feel like I am being pulled apart: did you know that doxies are VERY strong?
Sometimes they pull together, a lot like sled dogs (and I am the sled). We all get our exercise when we go for a walk in the woods.
But besides the exercise we are always running into beautiful things hiding out in our wonderful woods.
But lest you think that life is all travel, music, decorating, puppies, and wood walks, I have been sewing. Here you see the results of having ALL of Step 1 and Step 2 of Bonnie Hunter’s Easy Street Mystery DONE!! And it is only Wednesday. I even had time to draw the Teapot BOM for December and to pick out the fabric.
I will be on the road again tomorrow but will be back for the Step 3 unveiling on Friday.
