A large portion of SoCal has been burning up, and it's taken energy to watch the wall-to-wall coverage. One of the fires was in our general area, but the wind took it away from us so we didn't get even the smoke from it. Still, with the high winds that were relentless, and can be unpredictable, tensions have been high all week. Humidity drops into the single digits and all of this combined just grates on me.
For the last couple days, I've been feeling an inner nudge to get back to work on En Provence. I last worked on it on April 10th.
Well, this evening I received a message from an old friend in another state clear across the country, and she deeply explained some very sad and disturbing situations going on in her family, and it breaks my heart. It's the kind of situation that just drops you to your knees to plead with the Lord to bring change, peace, comfort and support on their behalf.
With this on my heart and mind, I felt the need to focus on something else while I could pray, and process the trials she's going through, and there was En Provence, waiting patiently.

On Monday, I'm planning to go with my friend Panda, to the nearest quilt shop to see if I can find a satisfactory black for the Bow Ties quilt borders. I might check Joann's, it's across from our Walmart and I need to do some shopping there too...should have done it today as I don't generally like to go there on the weekend.
