Today has been more of an unstitching day, than a stitching one. I had some tension issues while working on a quilt on Friday. So, a whole section had to come out. Most of the afternoon today was spent doing that. The only bonus about tension issues is that it makes taking the stitching out easier. (sigh) But it's done, and the quilt is reloaded and ready to go again for tomorrow's work time. I have done a little hand stitching, just to relax after all that ripping. It's still My Tweets, and the block doesn't look any different than the last time, but all the stitching is done, except for a section of the dark blue wing. Next time you see this block it will have some leaves, and maybe the flowers added to it. As I was quietly sitting and working on this bird, I happened to look up and outside the window beside me. I was struck by the beauty out in the yard in the late afternoon. The skies had cleared from the snow we got earlier today, to blue with fluffy white clouds. Not a bright blue, but a pale winter blue. The greys of the branches of the bare trees, and the greens of the pine trees, laden with fresh snow on their branches provided a perfect contrast against the background of snow and sky. It reminded me that even winter can be beautiful. If I hadn't had the motivation of working on this block today, I would have missed the beauty.
