Design Wall

Today is Leap Day! I hadn't thought about it much until I got a newsy email from a cousin. Its like getting a free day.  Maybe I should treat it like a snow day.   The way the wind is blowing it would be a snow day if we had any snow left. I didn't come up with much of a plan for the day so I will knit a little, sew a little, and read a little that almost sounds like the song from the Music Man.  I'll reminisce about the beautiful sunny day we enjoyed on Saturday.  Hubby went fishing and brought home 4 beautiful walleye.  I sat outside in shirt sleeves then took off my wool socks and changed into short sleeves and capris so I could soaked up some real vitamin D.  It felt so good to sit in the sun and enjoy the day without bugs and little wind.   I listened to the geese fly over,   I could hear them long before I could spot them.  I wondered how many miles the lead goose flies before they changed positions. Does the one on the right move ahead and the leader fall back on the left or does he go all the way to the  end of the V? Do the geese decide the order of the lead geese before taking off?  Do they argue about it? Does one of them keep track and make sure every goose gets a turn at breaking the wind?  Do they all know the way?  Then I saw my tulips are coming up.  Such foolish little plants don't they know we could still get lots of snow and cold on the prairie before it is time to bloom.
I'll try to come up with something memorable for Leap Day and hope you do too.

The fun blocks are done now for the red eye blocks.

I'm loving that quilt on your design wall - will be watching to see it progress. I have often wondered the same things as you about migrating geese - guess we'll never know the answers to all your questions, huh? LOL
