Currents | September 2015.

the oak tree in our front yard yesterday afternoon
Noticing the leaves starting to change. bonus points for #nofilter bright blue skies!

Healing slowly. My elbow tolerates an hour or two of knitting and my hamstring can run a slow mile (hopefully it will be ready for power yoga before the end of the month).

Embracing balance. not letting any one passion or worry consume me.

Eating birthday party leftovers. still.

Reading Bone Black with my eyes and All the Light We Cannot See with  my ears. I enjoyed what ended up being a weeklong break, but wow am I loving getting back into books!

Listening to Sara's carefully curated Pandora station or Vivaldi's Four Seasons. Something about fall always draws me back to classical music.

Watching not much, but when I do, it's HGTV. My new-favorite show is Fixer Upper.

Enjoying all the comments and community I find here when I blog more regularly (thank you so much for reading and taking the time to comment!), but

Letting go of trying to post more often (until November when I fully expect to blog for 30 days in a row).

Looking forward to our shop KAL. It starts today. I still need to wind yarn and find size 4 straight needles.

Practicing 1/4" seam allowances and

Hoping I'll have a quilt top to share next week, but then

Needing a class - or a good book or on-line tutorial (recommendations welcome!) - to turn it into a quilt.

Remembering Charlie's newborn days. and nights!

How about you, what's current in your world?

  2. Bike rides, football, long walks and at some point-tackling the unpacked mess-the blue skies make it so easy to avoid!

  3. Our leaves are starting to turn, too, but it's still nice and warm, at least for now. Have a great weekend!

  4. We're enjoying a nice, warm-spell right now -- and our leaves are slow-to-turn this year (I don't mind). I loved All the Light We Cannot See. Enjoy your weekend!

  5. You are finding a nice variety of things to keep you busy. After a rainy week I am looking forward to a blue sky weekend. The upper elevations show much more color than the valley, but shades of gold are creeping into the trees around me. I'm also hoping someone will cancel in the currently full pilates class I'd like to take. *fingers crossed*

  6. Fixer Upper is one of my favorite shows too! I watch the reruns and then sometimes even watch them a second time! I wish they would come and do my house for me!!

  7. Sara's Four Seasons station sounds like the perfect thing to listen to while sewing 1/4" seam allowances. Looking forward to seeing your quilt top!

  8. **Just a clarification that my carefully curated Pandora station is not Vivaldi but the perfect combination of alternative 90's, Beyonce, Taylor Swift, and depressing moody music.

  9. It sounds like you have a lot of good things going on! I hope you post your quilt top. As far as finishing your quilt, I can't think of a particular book or tutorial, there are so many good resources out there that you can't go wrong. Can't wait to see your quilt top!

  10. Aha! I had a brief thought about NaBloPoMo, too!! I'll definitely be participating... I've a pretty good streak going.
