Still away from studio


We stayed in this lovely cabin in Packwood, WA over the weekend.  Packwood is at the base of the Mt. Rainier area.  We were able to go exploring a bit before we headed home on Monday.


This is a small waterfall on Summit Creek near the Summit Creek campground.  There was a bit of snow on the ground in places, but it was mostly just overcast and breezy.


I loved all the moss covered rocks along the creek.  Of course, I saw quilt colors everywhere.  Look at these greens, blues, purples, and grays.  I think I will add purple to my string quilt and I will have a quilt to remind me of this fun weekend.

I will be away from the studio until Monday.  I am working on hand work whenever I get a chance, like when Bella is napping.  I will be on a ferry for two hours tomorrow, and I will take projects along for the ride.  I miss time in the studio, but I occasionally have to take time out for the rest of my life.  I am just grateful I have such a wonderful life that allows me to spend time with Bella and time to quilt.

Until next week, joyful quilting everyone.

Oh, what lovely clear photos. Glad you are having a nice time out. Getting away from the studio sometimes frees the mind to design differently and we need a break from our machines.
