so many in a day. Too many, and yet often, not enough. The Hours was an interesting movie about women, and hours do shape the foundation of each day. I think of that movie often, and what "the hours" hold for me and for each of us. Circumstance of life gave me an unpleasant hour the other evening via the comments section. The hours since then have brought a cup filled to overflowing with reassurance from all of you, my dear friends *VBS*A bright moment in an otherwise gloomy day was in my mailbox a few days ago. The sender even remembered that I don't always walk out to get my mail each day, and prompted me to do so *VBS* A new friend, but a very dear one,lives on the shores of Michigan(so to speak). I had linked over to meet Granny Lyn after she left me such a nice comment. She was offering to trade seeds with other bloggers, and I was thrilled to swap seeds with her. It's not that we can't afford seeds to plant, it that's it fun to have something from a friend, to share the sisterhood. These lovely fabrics were in the package along with the packet of seeds! I was just astonished! Granny Lyn you are a sweetheart, you brighten my day, I love the fabric and can't wait to make a wall or table quilt with them *VBS*And I can't wait to have Granny Lyn's marigolds blooming at my house this summer *VBS*
Even more amazing, I have this bundle of tone on tone colors from that DD#1 who tucked them into the flannel she brought for burp cloths for the new baby *VBS* They seem to work perfectly together...don't you just love the lemonade fabric????
And thanks to Julie Q, who challenged me to show my oldest UFO...LOL. I've decided to sew these Paths to Piece(it has other names)in sets of 2 and add them to the Orphan Train quilt I am piecing right now.
.Clare, who heads up the Quilts 4 Leukaemia, challenged me to use pieces from my scrap cutting and make a 12 blocks red and white quilt to be given to a leukaemia patient...I took the challenge *VBS*...I LOVE CHALLENGES! This is the 8.5" block that I will be making for my challenge. I didn't notice til I uploaded the picture, I've got one of the 4 patches sewn in reversed....gotta fix that!
Moving It Forward
