Simply pleasures are the best. In a time rife with bad news, I find myself holding tight to things that bring me delight. Earlier this week we were offered tickets to today’s Red Sox game. This isn’t just any game, it is the opening game at their home stadium and an afternoon game to boot. My excitement was compounded when I checked the weather report. It will be sunny and 68 °F /20 °C. Amazing! Now if the Sox win, even better. 🙂
In preparation for spending the day in Boston, I pushed hard to accomplish 5 days of work in 4 days this week. Usually that results in my making and compounding mistakes. Not this week. Oh joy! I accomplished what I hoped to get done. Then as an added bonus when I moved onto the next step in Bat Sh*t Crazy, a step I was uncertain about, all went smoothly. My optimism abounds.
I took a moment to sew together the pink blocks I made last week for the Rainbow Scrap Challenge. Then, I attached the pinks to the reds. Oh happy days, I officially have a completed column.
I am linking up with:
- Nina Marie’s Off the Wall Fridays
- 2022 Rainbow Scrap Challenge (RSC)
- Thank Goodness It’s Finished Friday (TGIFF)
I love your 4 red crazy patched blocks!!!
Thank you, Nancy. I’m pleasantly surprised by them. The red fabric is drawn from 30+ years of stash building. I thought I would never use them, but they are perfect to create the chaos of the sky.
Such an interesting sky!
What can I say, Angela? A chaotic red sky sprung to my imagination instantly and I knew had to play at the thought in fabric.
a day in Boston… I remember many visits to Boston and enjoyed them all
It was our first day back in Boston since January or February 2020. The gift of the Red Sox tickets was just the nudge we needed to get back in the world. We are members of the MFA, so spent parked there and spent our morning viewing the Turner exhibit. Then off to a pre-game lunch. The Red Sox haven’t hit their stride. It was a torture of a game. However, Mo Vaughn returned to for the honorary pitch to kick off the game. His 9 year old son threw out the pitch for him. Quite the character and a strong arm. He threw from the mound to home plate.
Boston is a great place to visit whether you are a native like me, or a tourist. There is always something to explore.
Those red blocks are so much fun! Bonus that the next steps seem to be going well, too 🙂
Thank you, Leanne. It took some time to develop system and rhythm for the crazy pieced blocks, but now that I am churning them out I’m pleased. Good to know they work for you.The townhouses are going to be a breeze to paper piece – at least the early ones. The overlap and varying sizes will add the usual challenge I inevitably foist on myself.
