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