Another finish and a start
Today turned out to be really windy and cold (by my standards). It would have been a great hiking day but Chris was away on a fishing trip. We have a big 5 mile hike planned for tomorrow. Cool and windy would be perfect for that.
All that to say that I didn't kayak today. Instead I did a yoga routine from my yoga app and did lots of sewing. This is the 3rd veterans quilt top. In hindsight I wish I had pieced it by rows instead of blocks. I've got TONS of twisted seams. It's just the kind of quilt that pantographs are made for!
Next up is 2 rail fence quilt tops. These should go really fast!
I officially started the new baby blanket today. They always look like such disasters for the first few rows. Doing the swatch made me confident that this one will turn out really pretty. I'll keep going!
We had a good rainstorm last night with lots of lightening that gave us this rainbow at the end.
Great way to end the day yesterday!

Busy, busy! What yoga app do you use?

The goose track top looks wonderful. Now you know to piece it by rows instead of blocks. Who knew? It's too bad you didn't get to go for the kayak ride, but at least you are smart and had an alternate plan to get some exercise. Enjoy that hike tomorrow!

It looks like you are enjoying your time away. I am also interested in which yoga app you use. Yoga is a great way to get the kinks out.

I would also like to know which yoga app, and what device it’s for. I need to get more active than I am.

I used to go to yoga classes and loved them, until the teacher decided that my limitations with my wrists were to be ignored and tried to force me to do poses that were very painful, despite my telling her that pain wasn't what yoga should be about. Her classes were advertised as being 'gentle yoga' but by the time I quit they were anything but.
