Late last night I did begin a new, little improv piece. I was planning to make a block for my scraps quilt, but I like this color scheme so much, I've decided to keep it by itself, so it doesn't get lost in that big quilt top.
I had some fun with the quilting, too! This is my very favorite part.
I have a bit more quilting to do and I think I'll finish this up as a new pillow cover for our family room.
Earlier this week I was away for a couple days at some appointments. I learned a lot from the doctors I saw, both of them were very helpful and extremely smart and kind woman. For the most part I am still waiting on more test results, but overall things went good. I can say that the more I learn about autoimmune disease, the more I realize just how terrible it is and can be. Please, if you know someone who suffers from an autoimmune disease, give them a big ol' hug the next time you see them. These sorts of issues can be a very lonely thing, that many people really don't understand. It's difficult sometimes to stay positive and motivated, but it's so important!! Knowing that people care, love you, and are praying for you makes all the difference! Feeling that support makes those bad days, much easier to get through.
Today, I'm going to let it go. I'm not having a very good day, but I'm going to keep having fun making my fox pillows, birthday crowns, and hopefully find (somewhere) a little time for working on my own projects, too.
I'm going to enjoy staring at and working with these beautiful fabrics I love so much!
I recently stashed the entire Washi fabric collection designed by Rashida Coleman Hale for Timeless Treasures. I love these fabrics!!
And, the Ruby Polka Dots Bundle by Bonnie and Camille. I'm a huge fan of the scalloped Sundae prints in this collection. I use it often and have reordered colors a few time, so I decided the dots were worth picking up, too.
I'm going to enjoy being joined by my favorite company/entertainment/helpers for a long weekend -- here's just two of them. My third is very busy these days constructing some mystery project out of all the broken and old remotes he's been collecting in his tool box?? LOL
I'm going to try to have at least one BIG finish soon! And, I really want to turn this forgotten applique project into something soon, as well! What would you like to see her become? I'd LOVE to hear your ideas!!
Oh, if only there were 48 hours in a day! Just imagine all the sewing that could be done!!
Happy March 1st, friends!! ♥ Maureen
