Simply Gorgeous Day

Mother Nature has gifted us with a mild winter this year (the past few days especially), so I took the opportunity to head out of doors to see if I could  capture some better pictures of some of my quilts.  Nothing beats natural lighting, right? On our walk home, I couldn't resist looking at the sky and admiring the winter blue, with the bright slice of moon showing.

I love the contrast in colour that the winter months bring.  The palette of this season can seem stark at times, but then there's something so pure about it.  Softer, somehow.  Clear and clean.  Beautiful.

Back indoors, I'm slowly working away on a new piece of bright patchwork.  I had hopes of being nearly completed, but somehow this weekend I got caught up in other things first and today I'm thankful to have spent some time soaking up the beauty in a simply gorgeous day.

Wishing you a week of gorgeous days!  Happy sewing....
