Perfection! …and some poses that start with the letter P

This morning I decided to finally sew the borders onto a quilt top that I made a few years ago. (Yes, yes, I’m a very s.l.o.w. sewer. You knew that, right?)

the sun was so bright, the picture is a bit washed out!

Anyway, as I was ironing the top, I got to thinking that maybe it was a bit clownish looking with all the bright colours. I mean…I like bright colours. I like them a lot! But maybe the person who I want to give this quilt to won’t like them so much.

the tulips opened this morning!

But then I remembered how much she loves spring.

And then I remembered the pictures I  included in yesterday`s blog post.
And hey!
The colours are exactly the same!
Exactly!

Dilemma solved, I spent the afternoon on my hands and knees basting top, backing and batting together.

This one will be hand quilted as it is for a Very Important Person who is long overdue for some quilty love from me. ♥ It’s a nice lap size…perfect for snuggling up with a cup of cocoa and a good book.

PAnd now for your yoga pose of the day.

Oh my gosh, there are a lot of poses that begin with the letter P. Which one to choose???

 

 

PeacockThere’s the Peacock pose…there’s no way I can do this, but what a fabulous name it has! I love peacocks. Except they sure don’t sound as pretty as they look.

I would give my eye teeth to be able to do this. Doing arm balances some day is my goal. Maybe not this particular one, though…

plowposeAnd then there’s the Plow…I used to do this but I never liked it. Now that I’m older, I’m too afraid of taking risks with my neck.

So here’s a yoga tip from me:There are NO YOGA POLICE telling you that you have to do something that you don’t feel secure trying. Like standing on your head. Or doing the plow. Listen to your gut and work with your own personal abilities.

plankHow about Plank? This is one I can do. In fact, I do it in every single yoga practice! I love plank! I can’t hold it for very long, but I love how it makes me feel strong. It’s great for getting strong all over. Arms, back, legs, and especially the middle. I don’t know about you, but I can use all the help I can get in the middle…
