Canyon Quilters

It's a quiet Sunday morning and I'm enjoying the chirp of birds and view of the water from my window from where I am staying while in San Diego. Yesterday was a wild, fun day with a group of 20 members from Canyon Quilters. Nothing like the anticipation felt in the air as everyone pulls all their supplies out of their cars, wanders into the big empty room and scopes out the best seat.

That is how the morning started, and it just got better from there. They came with photos and sketches in hand of far away places and some much closer to home and by end of day these had been stitched into fabric landscapes.

Tops done, we will be couching, quilting & embellishing these today. So, in just a little while I'll be back to the rooms filled with old & new memories of Africa, Paris, Yosemite and local Palomar mountains..... wild, fun!

Hope your Sunday plans bring you peace & creative contentment.
