Thursday Snippets

Pictures of solitude speak volumes, don’t you think? When the picture shows someone alone, I often wonder what they are pondering, what has brought them to that place. This picture was taken awhile ago, but it is one of my favorites. Not because of the quality of the shot, but because I wonder what stories the chair could tell.


As much as I enjoy the solitude of a quiet day at home, the weekend it was too nice to stay indoors so we took a drive and ended up at this charming little covered bridge.

There was a little quilt shopping  involved in the road trip, of course. I indulged myself and picked up a few things. I’m looking forward to giving these a try.

Time for a new phone. All my pictures come out fuzzy. Might have something to do with dropping it too many times. 🙂

As if to offset the beautiful weekend, Monday morning brought overcast gray skies and rain. My son was unexpectedly given the day off, so we took advantage of the rainy day and decided to connect with one another over breakfast. It was a nice way to begin the day.


Despite the rain, the temps continue to be above average for this time of year.Soon I will be seeing these bright pops of color on my deck and around my yard.


For now, I am happy to see open water and the brown ground that will soon give way to lush green and bright sunshine. Some of the trees are even beginning to bud!

This makes me think of the saying “can’t see the forest for the trees”. It also has me thinking quilt patterns.

Happy Thursday!

  1. Solitude is when I innovate best. It’s when I am in my element. I love covered bridges too and can’t wait to see what you do with texturing. Your trips and visits sound pieceful!

  2. Thanks for sharing! You must have been in Zumbrota! Our kids loved their “jail park” when they were younger. Even though I don’t sew I still enjoy their fabric store. I was there not too long ago with my sister and loved all the colorful choices. Maybe someday I’ll get creative!

    1. You are correct, Annette! It was a beautiful day. All in Stitches is one of my favorite shops!

    1. Thank you. I’ve seen some quilts with trees and like the look, so I might give it a try.
