Now that Lent has begun I'm going to move the Friday Five post to a quick Sunday post. :) The first photo in the line up was taken on Ash Wednesday down at the marina. I was on my way home from visiting with a friend. While I was sitting at the traffic light I looked up and saw the flag flying and realized it would be a good pic for the week 7 challenge -- the challenge can be found here.

After library on Thursday we noticed the extremely low tide and couldn't help but stop down by the bay and take a look at all the goodies left on the shore...
...feeling inspired by the bay, once back at home a search through my scrap bags yielded a little mermaid scrap and a quick log cabin was stitched up for her to live in.
Yesterday was the Project Linus Make A Blanket Day. Rosemary wasn't able to go so I picked up her cheerful and darling little froggy quilt on my way there and dropped it off for her.
It was great meeting my local Project Linus coordinator Marianne Britton and her predecessor Nancy Reeves. Two very sweet ladies who I look forward to seeing more often at the quarterly meetings. They showed me lots of other sweet blankets and quilts that were donated as well as give me some insight as to what to expect from the quarterly meetings. They loved Julie's pattern "The Happy Camper" and want to show it at the next meeting as another project idea for donations. The pattern is sew much fun to make and can be customized for girls or boys. The pattern can be purchased in Julie's Etsy shop KnitpickinChicken.
I've really been enjoying writing in my journal since Lent began. I've found it to be a great help in keeping track of my thoughts and especially helping me be more mindful and honest about what I've chosen to let go of during this lenten season. The book "Fire Within" has been just what I've needed to get my prayer life in order, I'm devouring it! I'm really looking forward to this time of renewal. May you all have a blessed week.
