Making Progress.....

Note to self....."I don't have to take this day all at once but rather one step, one breath and one moment at a time.  I am only one person.  Things will get done when they get done."  -unknown
Good advice for starting out the gift of each new day.  I had big plans on Monday on what I would accomplish this week, and here it is Friday and there are many things that have not been crossed off my list. However, some unplanned goodness happened this past week.  I reconnected with a friend from my old neighborhood for lunch, and what a good thing that was.  It reminds me that I don't want to be so programed with my to do list that I let special little blessings pass me by......that is also a note to self.
I've added a couple of new blocks in the last two days.........I have plans!!!!:-)

This is another of Gaylyn's quilts which she shared with us last night.  A wonderful traditional quilt which will look lovely in her home.
I love her scrappy back......I almost always piece my backs on my quilts.  It makes them more interesting.

Miss Muffet's tuffet.....  Lorraine from my other quilt group took a class and made this adorable foot stool for her new sewing room.  You would have to take your shoes off for certain before using it.

Janelle Parker sent me this picture of these three marvelous autumn time wool cone type holders which she made.  Won't they look festive with a few leaves, bittersweet or other fall foliage in them.  Thank you so very much for sharing them with all of us Janelle.  I don't have any information about the pattern used......I'm certain she will be happy to share that information with us.
