And just in the nick of time because a certain little someone is turning three soon. Opa is headed off to the post office as this is being typed....
Daniel loves John Deere tractors, so this seemed perfect for him. I found some fun fleece for the back. Fleece is the "easy way out" on a quilt, but it works for me, particulary on kid quilts which you know are going to take a beating.
It seems like a LONG time since Mother's Day weekend because we've been so busy. The family gave me a very pretty bleeding heart plant; I love them but haven't been very successful with them. Hopefully this one will be happy like the light pink tree azalea nearby that Carl gave me ages ago
Recently the mail brought this OPAM (see the sidebar) surprise. Peg contacted me a few weeks ago about being the January winner. Who knew? Isn't that a pretty bookmark? Now you know how behind I am on blog reading!
Before our weather returned to "normal" and things got crazy with choir rehearsals, we headed north, took the ferry from Mulkiteo to Whidbey Island, and crossed Deception Pass. It's called that because of its wicked currents. Currents, notwithstanding, it's a beautiful spot, especially on a sunny day.
Navigating this channel must be made interesting by the rocky cliffs as well.
During the past weekend, which was mostly consumed by our choir "Worship through Music" services and a memorial service for a choir member, we did squeeze in a walk around Green Lake, one of our favorite walking spots. It wasn't sunny but hadn't started to rain yet either.
Mama Redwing Blackbird was trying to tell us something. Maybe she had a nest close by? Or maybe she was saying, "Get back to work?"
BTW, we sang Ola Gjielo's Sunrise Mass twice yesterday, and it went great. Whew!
We have lived in the Pacific Northwest for 40 years and love it. Two of our three grown children live nearby, the other lives in the Chicago area. Handwork is one of my favorite things to do. Lately knitting has kept me busy, but I've done lots of quilting, too.
