1st of all I can't believe it's early October. Honestly this year has just been a complete blur, and continues to be that way. I am trying to make the most of it!
Best news on the Covid 19 front is that my mom's facility finally allowed in-person visits this week so I was able to see my mom from 6' away outside. She's healthy, which is a miracle. She's a bit more confused than before but still, for almost 93, she survived Covid 19 and is moving around. I'd say it's a win-win!
We went kayaking yesterday probably for the last time this year. Weather is going to change this weekend. We went to the second largest lake in Oregon called Waldo Lake. These lakes were all formed by volcanic eruptions so the depth of the lakes is amazing and the water is aqua blue! The air was perfectly still so the water was like glass. I have to show you the reflection of this rock formation!
My friend took this of me in my boat. It's a bit far away but you can get the idea. It's been a great year of kakaking and I'm sorry to have gone on and on about it. All I can say is if you ever have the chance to go out on a kayak, do it! There is something incredibly serene about sitting in a boat in the middle of a body of water with mountains around. It makes all of the rest of the world disappear for a short time!
I've been plugging away at my Stars and Sprigs quilt, still not convinced what my alternative block is going to look like. I've been doing the appliqué blocks and enjoying that!
I've made two more and have tried to be a little less chaotic in the fabric choices.
You'll see I haven't washed out the purple marker yet for the placement lines.
