Life has been giving me some health scraps lately, and as the quilter I am my solution is to make quilt blocks ;-)
Hand piecing is quiet and comforting and let the mind flow in a good way.
Even a troublesome body sort of goes away for the duration.
I also love the way a hand piecing project is so easy to move with me, both indoors and outdoors.
The weather forecast says that the lovely warm weather is leaving now, so it is good to have enjoyed it while it lasted. This year we got summer in April – I hope we get some summer in summer too.
I celebrated my birthday teaching last week, and I was given a wonderful surprise party!
What a treat – the very very best chocolate cake ever – and the birthday song to go with it.
Thank you ever so much you wonderful people – I am very touched :-)
My dear husband is taking me to the theatre and out for fine dining with some friends of ours on Wednesday – it is his birthday gift to me and my birthday gift to him too.
Good moments and happy memories lasts forever!
Time to pull out one of the many Ufos and move it forward.
I enjoyed sorting the pieces and re-starting this one. I know there are a lot of other projects which should have had priority, but this one is my choice for now.
When I started this quilt about 1 year back, I planned to work very organized, using my Log Cabin ruler, pre-cut and sub cut the strips and all that.
Well – my mind does not work like that, and it sort of takes away my creativity to pre-think everything. I am somewhat impressed with those who can work so organized (or maybe not) – on the other hand I accept myself for who I am and who I am not……
So, I went back to do scrappy my favourite way, scrappy, random in a planned way, as I work along.
It sure put the F back in Fun!
I wonder if more of my Ufos stalled for somewhat the same reason……...Have to look into that as I go along…..
15 blocks done – 20 to go :-)
