More from Asilomar Trip

Everyday my friend, Wendy and I left the park grounds, and each day we would stop and take a picture of this beautiful "butterflied" moose. There was a stained glass window in the house with butterflies, too, so I think the moose must be pretty special for them. Isn't it just wonderful?





And this is the sunset over the ocean about 7PM. The first picture was taken at 7:05 PM, the second was within about 5 more minutes, just as the sun started to sink below the horizon. In all the years I've been going to Asilomar, this is the first time I've ever gotten a clear night with no rain or clouds!




This is the project I finally landed on, and started on Thursday morning before I left on Friday. Making these blocks is really addictive, and far easier than I ever imagined. I can hardly wait to make more.



This will probably be the last post for a while, as Mother is declining rapidly now. I will be spending the next days at her bedside. Stay stitching, though, while I am away.

P.S. Absolutely no rush on this, but when you have time, would you share with us how you make those neat circle blocks?

Those last days are precious, treasure them. Even without words you get to say everything you need to. We'll be waiting for you when you return.

I love this set of photos. The colors on the moose and the quilt are beautiful, and the sunset wonderful.
I wish you and your mother peace in this time together.

Your circle quilt really looks complicated - all those curves! Love your vacation photos - that is one very interesting moose there. And, take care of yourself too during this time, I am sorry about your Mom - sometimes there is peace in just sitting there and being close.

Hugs,

Evelyn
