Since my only goal for the year is to enjoy - no monthly end wrap ups and no solid monthly goals. I know what I have to get done and I am not stressing myself as I have the whole year to do it in no particular order.
Things have been a bit off around here - really. No, my Mom is as well as expected. BUT - we have a big flock of blue birds (we don't see those until May), a couple of skunk were out in the yard one evening, and one of our hunky-chunky woodchucks was out under the feeders the other day. Now, Mother Nature has been cruel to us. Not a lot of snow, but ice and super cold. So I don't understand the unusual early 'harbingers' of Spring. But the thought of Spring makes me long for color.
I try to make a quilt using the Pantone color of the year. I've already played with my greens - dark, medium, light, and brights (Meadow's Mountains and new Bear quilt). And RSC17 is using Sea Green this month. I think I will sit on the greens for a while.
Kona's color of the year is Flamingo Pink. I don't work with pink unless I really have to.
And then Benjamin Moore thru a curve ball at me - Shadow. Although I am doing the Solstice QAL using grays and yellows - so there is my gray play.
The next Bag Lady has some greenery color and some flamingo pink and some gray - does that count? Do you check the colors for the year?
Do you have a collection of 'want to' hanging on your wall? (I have a bulletin board like this too) I need color!
And a very blurry image - just so you can see how I played with the camp and brown scraps - I had to add a little color with the corner stones. This needs a border - yeah, border. But it is so brown and the quilt I passed on to my long armer is scrappy browns - I need color.
So I will go thru my tub and find a project to finish - that has color!! OR - start something new and use color!!
