Both Friday and Saturday were sunny and warm. We enjoyed outings to Ray Lake and Pine Dunes.
Lower left: a beaver lodge. Lower right: a ladder. The trails at both preserves were 2.25 miles. The more I walk the easier it gets!
A front came through and today (Sunday) was overcast and much colder. After church we stayed home. We put out the Christmas decorations. The boys are back! (The biggest one never went away....) These are all German nutcrackers (and four smokers) acquired over many years.

The blue bin, home to fat quarters and chunks, was overflowing. It's been a long time since I made a mostly blue quilt. Bonnie Hunter's "My Blue Heaven" popped into mind. I looked up the pattern and got to cutting. And sewing. And trimming. Repeat. Count. And repeat some more.
(Bonnie's directions call for making the flying geese out of strips. I'm making four-at-a-time (see the lower right in the photo of two 3" squares layered on a 5-1/2" square). My method avoids cut-away corners that I either throw away or make into bonus triangles. I don't need any more bonus triangles!)
The date on the printout is 2007.
It's generating its own pile of scraps.
P.S. Bonnie was interviewed for the Save Our Stories project. The Textile Talks recording is on YouTube here
