I'm sure you've probably heard the news of the events here in Ottawa on Wednesday. It was a rough day to say the least. Our hearts are broken for Cpl. Nathan Cirillo and his family. So very sad! Many Ottawans, yours truly included, were in buildings on lockdown for most of the day. It was scary, but we're okay. I'm so proud of how our military, police and Parliament security reacted to and handled the situation. We're trying to get back to normal today, though with Cpl. Cirillo's sacrifice front and centre.
As always, quilting is my therapy for stressful situations so I was pretty happy to spend Wednesday evening sharing my quilts with the Arnprior District Quilter's Guild. What a great group!
I have also made good progress with my Layers of Leaves piece. Here are a few photos of some of the design choices I've been considering tonight.
1) Go dark at the bottom?
2) Try some green?
3) Green and dark grey?
4) Green and brown?
5) Finish with the same grey as the top?
6) Finish with a slightly darker grey than the top?
What do you think?
