Generous gift + setting Saturday's goals

These fabrics + the English paper piecing pattern came in the mail today from a good friend,
as a contribution to "occupational therapy" during this time of waiting.
I am not often caught speechless, but today I was ;-)

Some other good tidings was received as well,
and the sun has been shining,
so I have also been out on the veranda, with coffee and book, wiggling my toes in my sandals and enjoying the scent of the lilacs blooming, belated but still very appreciated !
It was like being embraced by nature - warm, soft and lovely.

The art of being happy is to make one's pleasures simple - Chinese proverb

This has been a good day, with rest and good moments !
Other than the usual Friday morning exercise and physiotherapist massage,
I have spent most of the day on the veranda, and have also done some machine quilting. Not much, but even 30 minutes is more than nothing :-)

Plans for tomorrow:

More quilting on DD2's quilt. It will get more quilting than I originally planned - typical, right ? ;-)
Some work on the Starboat blocks - maybe 2 blocks ?
I want to play with the red fabrics and NI blocks too :-)
