Celebration of Love & Life
I deeply appreciate this Labor Day Weekend. Our town along with many others have been so bless with those giving up vacations, time from families and backyard picnics to help in the recovery from Irene. So many from across New York State, the Reserve, and many other States for En-Con to help in regaining power in some of the worst conditions. And the outpour of funds donated as well as many essential supplies, food and clothing. I personally express a huge THANK YOU!
I am super excited that one of my Wantobe's won this sewing machine over at Stash Manicure. Congratulations Christel! I am dancing and screaming along side you.
And I receive this wonderful kit of Aurifil threads. Yes, MSamm is kidding me about the amount of thread - I am a thread demon!! This will be new thread for me, so will have to do a little review.
A while back I showed playing in my 2" square barrel to make 9-patch blocks. It was a good day to start creating with them. Mirror blocks of light and dark settings with 'boxed' 9's.
I have gotten this far today. Two more rows of the light/dark 9's and then a row of the boxed 9's. Also, setting the corners with the boxed 9's. I just love how this is turning out.
1OO Quilts for Kids - see button on side - I will be delivering some to my LQS Tuesday - there will be a need in our community.
The Hands2Help quilts are headed to Romania
My poor Bella has been residing on top of the refrigerator thru this whole ordeal - I guess this is her 'flight of fright' - the highest place. If I let her out, she climbs high in the trees. I rather have her on the fridge.
Sometimes it's important to work for that pot of gold. But other times it's essential to take time off and to make sure that your most important decision in the day simply consists of choosing which color to slide down on the rainbow.
