Marvelous Inspiration

In all things of nature there is something of the marvelous.

Aristotle

Most of these past two weeks have been spent in my sewing room, as I am busy making fabric pouches to use as gift bags. I have managed to squeeze in real life stuff on some days, but I wanted to make today special.
The year is quickly coming to an end, and I am reflecting at what I have done. It is also time to start thinking about what I want to do. My friends and I took an opportunity to enjoy this beautiful, crisp winter day by going for a walk at the San Antonio Botanical Garden. It has been a while since I visited this peaceful place. The four of us were the only ones there early this morning. We enjoyed the sounds and sights. It was quite inspirational. Even in the winter, the Gardens are a sight to see. We were able to see many birds, including a Blue Heron, a Red Hawk, and many wrens. The cardinals were absolutely gorgeous. The colors, natural designs, and textures that surrounded us led to great discussions. Two of our non-quilting friends have decided to try making their first quilt. We plan to choose the same design or pattern, but use the color palette of our choice. This is one activity on my 2020 To-Do List. There are so many things I would like to try in 2020, so I will continue looking for inspiration to help me design a plan. I hope to hear from all of you and see what you are thinking of doing. In the meantime, I will post a few photos from today’s marvelous walk.

  1. What an inspiring walk, thank you for the description and photographs. Your enthusiasm is infectious!
    I too have been thinking about 2020, as well as the past year. Perhaps I will write a post about it later today

  2. What a wonderful thing to be able to have this place right near home to visit. We have temps in the 20’s and high winds today, so it was a welcome sight. I am also trying to figure out plans for 2020. I hope to be more adventurous and kinder, plus try some new art forms. Vague ideas that I must flesh out. Anyway, thank you for this spirit-lifting set of photos.

    1. Thank you for always for always presenting spirit-lifting, creative thoughts, art, and poetry. I too would like to explore new art forms, but don’t exactly know what to do. I also want to work on art forms that I have been dabbling with and not yet satisfied with the results. The beginning of a new year is always so exciting and promising.

  3. Those photos look wonderful! Making fabric pouches as gift bags is on my list of things to do someday, kudos to you for actually doing this! So you have inspired your non quilting friends to get quilting – very cool! Please warn them it can become an obsession 🙂
