Oak Grove

I still haven't settled my mind on a new direction for quilting, but last week while I was cleaning I came across this dormant project.

A new oak tree grew today!  These are 18" blocks, so approximately 25" on point.

Each block takes hours of mindful sewing.  It will be a long while before I have the entire forest done.

We've lived in this house for eight years today!  We so enjoy this house, and love living in Big Bear --  it's been14 years up here in the mountains already, counting the cabin before this. 

The time will come when we want to move closer to the grandkids, and to more than just basic medical services, but for now this is where our hearts live.
The time goes so fast ...
