"This & That" on a Rainy Day

And, these words of inspiration for your next project, from Owl's Nest Quilters in Grand Junction, CO:
Consider memorializing your loved one in a quilt. Create a t-shirt quilt, a crazy quilt, a patchwork quilt, a message quilt, or a portrait quilt to name just a few ideas. Quilting is both healing and telling. Quilt your message.
I planned a brisk walk before the rains arrived. There are so many snippets of inspiration-gathering as I stop to visit several horses and "Gabby" the donkey; see the patchwork of harvested vineyards (with rows & rows of vines; each block running in a different direction); rolling hills with a palm tree by a barn in the distance; and a favorite gnarly face in an old olive tree.
Yes, with a strong wind and dark skies, the rain arrived! Here's wishing you wonderful inspired-filled moments.
