Sigh. At the end of my yoga classes I teach, I always say, "The light within me humbly honours the light within each and every one of you." This is the translation of the Sanskrit word, Namaste. Would that everyone reach into themselves and choose Light rather than Darkness.
And that brings me to my gratitude topic for today: Yoga.

SO! Perfect segway into my third part of this post: I am going to commit to another month of Melissa's A Lovely Year of Finishes, and FINALLY! Yes! I can!! Make the yoga mat bag I have had in my head for about a year now. My old yoga mat bag's zipper gave up the ghost about 4 years ago now. . .
I'd thought about inserting a new zipper, or making a new bag, but then about a year ago I had the brainwave of what I want to create, using Leah Day's motifs --eek! that excites me: teal or maybe blue thread on black!! However, it got added to the UFO pile:
|Black Kona cotton with thread possibilities|
Hopefully it will come into being by the end of the month!
What was I working on today? A brand new quilt top! Angela Walters' Textures fabric I bought online this winter while we were in Florida. More on that another day!
And where is the hand-quilted runner that was my goal to finish for May? Cough. Same place as last week...
I did get Brady's Christmas Party! quilt washed and dried. It's so soft and cuddly.
