counting my blessing, thinking about my family and what I'd like to accomplish for the day. I like to enjoy a mug of coffee, and I savor the quiet and finding time to read. For many years I bounced out of bed to an alarm and set out on my nursing rounds. I rejoice in my present morning ritual.
I have finished the body of this new design, and now I am working on the border, which will be pieced. I have spent hours with needle and thread appliqueing these twelve inch blocks. Hand work is just the best!
A closer look. The idea for this quilt came from one of my antique quilt books.
This quilt is growing slowly. The base of the circle is created from twelve wedges sewn together by machine. Then the petals are appliqued in place. It has been really fun digging through my stash. There are several pieces of fabric which I've rediscovered.
I hope you are all finding time to sew and create. Please feel free to share what you are working on.
In today's rush we all think too much, seek too much, want too much and forget about the joy of just Being." -Eckhart Tolle
