Winter Walking (2012!)

Shannon and I spent part of the afternoon Saturday walking along the Provo river, close to my first home in Utah.  It is winter, but it has sure been a mild one. 

The lower part of the trail parallels the river to where it dumps into Utah Lake.  Parts of it are surrounded by trees, in their spare winter glory.

We saw ducks along the entire walk, some mallards and some coots.

I absolutely loved the two pictures I got of reflections on the water.  

  And this tree stump, reflected in the water--

It really felt good to get out and walk- I haven't done it since the issues with my foot started.

And, I have no pictures yet, but I spent the better part of Saturday morning quilting!  I decided I needed to get my Grace quilt done, I'm tired of having it hanging over my head.  I got the free-flowing part done to my satisfaction, and started on the more structured part.  I'm using one of the designs in Charlotte Warr Anderson's second book of geometric quilting designs.  Because it is not densely quilted, it is coming along nicely.  I am really trying to get the muse jumpstarted again!!

Bev you have a wonderful eye for photos. They are lovely and very inspiring. One of the reflections looks like hand dyed fabric.
