A New Leaf
I'm turning over a new leaf starting today. Under the new leaf are many things I used to do which I didn't have time to do over the past six years. I used to sew, cook (gourmet style), read, travel, and had lots of other hobbies too. Many of my previous activities seemed to fall by the wayside. I was so busy installing and taking care of my gardens, remodeling my house, and taking care of my father-in-law who had dementia, I seemed to loose track of everything else.
Here's a lap quilt I found in the hall closet before we moved. It's 4.75 x 3.5 feet and made of flannel fabric which is nice to cozy up with. I started this quilt over five years ago and never finished it. I have it put together, but I haven't finished the edges. I'm sure I was attracted to the material because of the Autumn colors and the natural elements depicted like acorns and oak leaves, and of course, the raven.
Sometimes the underside of a leaf is just as nice as the topside. I plan on turning over lots of leaves in my travels and seeing what I can discover underneath. Stay tuned for more from the traveling potter. Thanks for visiting and please leave a comment and let me know what you're up to.
