First I have to say that I can’t believe that February is already Here…January flew by! Rumor has it, in case you haven’t heard… the Ground hog saw his shadow, so we are suppose to have 6 more weeks of winter… but today was beautiful! I had a couple different Dr appointments to go to today, so yesterday, I decided I would take the whole day instead of a half day off from work. Boy did I ever get Lucky… The sun has shined ALL DAY… My first Dr told me to enjoy my day when I was leaving… he calls a day like today a wellness day and he is a firm believer in them. He told me that after all the stress I put myself thru with my testing and the overtime..it is a well deserved day to relax and enjoy with nothing on the agenda… So…after my first appt, I took the pup and the camera down to one of our Waterfront parks. We checked out a new section they have been working on, it’s a tribute to the Chinese immigrants that helped build our town back in the 1800’s. The finished parts are just beautiful. Here are a few pictures that I took along the walking trails that are accessible.
There are several rocks that are engraved like this along the trails,
very neat idea and creates a welcoming walk.
I love how they used square rocks to set off this walking bridge
along the parks water edge. I bet there will be quite a
few wedding pictures taken here. It’s a perfect spot.
A really neat Chinese Structure is in the Center of the park…
I took a close up of the roofline.
There is some pretty neat details that have gone into the structure.
Then I was off to my second Dr appt…Low and behold I have been advised to get reading glasses…Wouldn’t ya know it.
Probably too much blog reading and sewing.
Oh well…I knew it was coming J I’ll look for some really super cute ones.
When I got home from all my appointments.. I could not resist finishing up a bit of sewing. J I had the Patriotic quilt almost finished so I decided to get it done.
I quilted it last night..so today was just binding and pictures.
I LOVE how the quilting turned out…you can really see it on the backside.
Tooting my horn when I say I am feeling better everyday about my free-motion quilting. I practiced on a sheet of paper first, then tackled the quilt on the sewing machine. Not perfect, but will work for this fun mini.
Will be a fun table centerpiece on my round dining room when July gets here 😉
Well that’s how my day went today… Before I head off to hide a bit in my sewing cave and see what I can find to work on for this weekend, I will share just a few more pictures from the day with you…I hope you all are having a wonderful week. Let me know what you’ve been up to 😉
Some very cute ducks were swimming along the water’s edge…along with
a Kayak-er enjoying the beautiful Day out on the water….
And my crazy pup Jasmine trying to see everything going on
from the top of the logs 😉 She is too funny!!
Till Next Time…..
