Bringing the 100 Day Project to a Close

 The 100 Day Project has been in full swing since the end of February 2022.  Here are the posts from day #61 - day #100.

#61/100 "Faith is the bird that feels the light and sings when dawn is still dark." Tagore

#62/100 "The butterfly counts not months but moments and has time enough." Tagore














the ocean can calm itself, 

so can you, 

we are both salt water mixed with air." Nayyirah Waheed










#64/100 "You just have to settle for nothing less than 

being fully alive--to show up, be who you are, and share your gifts." 

                                                                 Gabriella Roth

#67/100 Watercolor and words to inspire

"A walk in the woods is good for the soul." Heather Stibbufsen

#68/100 After a long hike on this day, Thich Nhat Hanh has the most beautiful words.

"Walk as if you are kissing the Earth with your feet."

#69/100 Some loops on the bird body getting some stitching

#70/100 "Happiness is contagious." Marie Forleo  And getting outside brings on the happiness.

#71/100 Tara, my artist cat is waiting for me to get back to stitching.  My friend, Kim said "Tara's waiting for the bird."





#72/100 detail of the leaf stitching

#73/100 "my mother was my first country; the first place i ever lived."  Nayyirah Waheed

I've been thinking about my Mom often in this May spring time.  It was her favorite season, her birthday, May 6 and Mother's Day all wrapped in a beautiful bundle for her.

#74/100 A bit of mindfulness reminder from Tich Nhat Hanh, 

"The best way to take care of the future is to take care of the present moment."

#75/100 Oh the flowers are blooming on the quilt; just like what is happening with spring in Minnesota.









#76/100 Feet, eggs and nest stitching happening


#77/100 "No matter what people tell you, WORDS and IDEAS can change the world." Robin Williams





















#96/100 Two Friends


"Behold Wonder."  Richard Bach


"Make each day your masterpiece."  John Wooden


"Joy is your birthright." Leslie Santos



"Hold out your hands to feel the luxury of sunbeams."  Helen Keller

During the 100 day project I stitched, painted, found poems that I loved, wrote poetry that I put on my own fiber art, used #hashtags more then I ever have and played in new ways with color and words.  It was a fun challenge.  I found some other artists who were also doing this challenge and that was fun too. The project concluded on June 16, 2022.  I posted almost every day consecutively--sometimes I'd miss a day, sometimes I'd post twice in a day.  I was quite excited to do this challenge.

If you're curious about the other art works that I posted earlier check them out here:

More Updates on Mankato Ave, Winona


Following signs is very important in this time of extensive construction.


This  huge pile of soil is on the side of the road on Mankato Avenue.  This is just South of Target.

Some of the sidewalks are closed with a little vocal machine to help a vision impaired person know not to proceed. Hmmm, I wonder where that person would go.

This section of Mankato is two lanes--one in each direction.

Lot of heavy equipment moving soil and rock.

These lanes of Mankato are heading South near the hospital toward Highway 61.

The intersection of Mankato and Highway 61 has some interesting ways to get through.  Temporary signal lights help the traffic flow but there are delays.

Taking deep breaths; avoiding the early morning, noon and 4-5pm times are helpful in avoiding great delay.

Farmer Running for Senate from Southeast Minnesota


Dan Wilson is running for Senate in the 2022 election.  

Two young supporters created a sign in support, "Farmer for Senate."


"As a beginning farmer I’ve seen the difficulty of land access that prevents bright, innovative young people from getting into the business; I have seen older, experienced farmers driven to the wall by unfair prices and corporate consolidation. If you elect me I will work to put more money in Soil and Water Conservation Districts and to invest and explore innovative new ideas like a fair trade milk and beef program and payroll cost share for farmers."


Dan's cows

It's official, Dan Wilson for Senator with a group of loyal supporters.
