Throw Back to 2014: The Quake
We all have projects waiting in the wings...well my wings got a lot shaken in August when the 6.0 earthquake bounced me around a bit. I'd like to say it got me out of bed, but the truth is in my attempt to run (who knows where I think I was going?) that shaking pushed my right back in bed. Living only 6 miles from the epicenter of the quake, I was surprised and thankful, how little was damaged.
I guess living is such a beautiful place is the trade-off for the possibility of disaster. Even as I sit here typing, the house did a little creak, my heart jumped, but I wouldn't think it's time to leave. For a few days after the quake, I went into a state of heighten alertness, cautious and everything seemed to slow down. I drove over to Napa and saw the real damage a quake can cause. Again thankful that everyone I know is OK...........and asked myself "what are you waiting for?" There is so much you want and have to do.
I went into overdrive. All those projects, all that yarn (and fabric), all the time....must not go to waste. I finished the quilt top and took it to Broadway Quilts to have in quilted. Next I took a look in my stash to prioritize projects.
I pulled out cotton yarn I purchased at Blue Bird Yarns in Sausalito
about 4 years ago. This is a crocheted market bag.....just the prefect bag for my daughter's trips to the Farmer's Market.
