I was so very enticed by Gladiquilts job on the Stars & Sprigs quilt that I ordered the pattern, bought some great background fabric and got started. I have done a lot of appliqué but it's been years.
I'm doing a bright version and using a great red background!
I'm trying to take advantage of the last days of warm weather here in Central Oregon. The leaves have started to turn and the mornings are a brisk 32*! Last week I kayaked with my friend at a lake where we were able to see 3 mountains from the Cascade Range.
You're looking at the South Sister which is a huge peak. The snow hasn't even completely melted. My kayak is an inflatable one, which means I can fold it up and throw it into the back of the car. No need to kill myself putting it on the roof. No thanks. Has to be easy for me.
But let me tell you a couple of weeks ago, my dh and I went to go kayaking and we got all the way to the lake, and I unloaded the boats and pump when I realized I had forgotten one of the paddles. UGH.
I'm going again tomorrow as this week is gorgeous here in Bend! And I will be sure to bring my paddle. My husband says I should have a check-list but I'm not a check-list kind of girl. :-))
Hope everyone is having a great week and staying safe.
