Wednesday my husband and I went out to discover a new-to-us segment of the lakefront bike trail. It was so calm -- in great contrast to the upheaval in Washington, D.C. which we watched on the news, horrified.
(You can tell it's a different day by the color of my turtleneck. :) )
The sun was out on Saturday when we revisited Middlefork Savanna in Lake Forest. That's teasel on the left. It is so photogenic but it is actually an aggressive invasive species. (It was used to raise the nap of woolen cloth. Read more here.)

In the studio: a corner of the MQG mini quilt. I will mail it to my swap partner tomorrow. Midweek I'll show the entire quilt and share the story of the design.
I'm fiddling with ways to arrange the HSTs I made for last year's Rainbow Scrap Challenge. This month's RSC is pink.
But, oh, those batiks! They were so happy to be let out of their wire baskets. (Remember, for two months I was devoted to the Civil War repro project.) I had a few four-patches on hand. I had a few framed four-patch blocks on hand. And now I have many more. They are 5.5" unfinished and as you can see I'm considering setting them as nine-patches.
