Week in Review 2020 – 12/11

Transition is today’s theme. Life is full of transitions. It won’t be long now, December 20th to be precise, when the northern hemisphere marks the Winter Solstice and the southern hemisphere honors the Summer Solstice. We live a short walk from the Atlantic Ocean. One of the treats is catching the ocean changing over from high to low tide or vice versa. It is a moment of stillness. Other times the stillness are only captured in a photograph, such as the two featured in this post. Stillness is precisely what I am experiencing with Cautiously Optimistic.

Actually, even in stillness there is movement. For example, I spent the week:

  1. Removing all the paper used in paper piecing from the back of Cautiously Optimistic;
  2. Organizing all the left over strips and precut pieces in preparation for intuitively piecing the back side of the quilt; and
  3. Playing around with potential simple (right who am I fooling?) ways to easily combine whatever pieced sections I create.

The good news, next week the tide will turn. I should have something to show for my effort.

I am linking up with Nina Marie’s Off the Wall Fridays.
