I love holidays

I love having time to play. Since the start of Christmas break I have made two quilts and I plan to start another. I just need to pick fabrics and to start cutting. I also am making a collection of fabric bowls for my sewing room and I hope to have photos tomorrow.

I also finished this cute little pin cushion. I bought a kit for it almost a year ago. I really love doing the wool appliqué and embroidery. I have more wool so I will need to come up with something on my own. I have an idea... I would like to make a case for my embroidery
scissors. So many things to do and make.... Oh happy days...

starting new page

I have been going through many of my half started art journals and I have been painting over the bits I hated or never finished...
It feels good, like a fresh start.

Stitch one...

one of new favorite things... Quilting on my sewing machine. I learned to quilt from my grandmothers when I was young. It did not occur to me until very recently that I love quilting! I even taught a friend to quilt a few years back. I started a baby quilt for a friend last weekend and I am obsessed... buying fabrics, building a stash, finding books and blogs... I spent almost no time with my poor neglected camera...

I have an idea...

Friday, September 11, 2009


It is kind of my new philosophy...

Want to do something? Leap!!
just do it...

Want to change your life? Leap!!!
do not be afraid.

False starts are ok... they are much better than standing still.

So LEAP... that is what I practice.
Follow inspiration and see where it leads.
Celebrate divine inspiration!

Friday favorites

My world has been a little crazier than usual so blogging has fallen to the wayside...
I have been feeling inspired for many reasons that I will elaborate on in the near future. For today, I will just share a few of my favorite flickr shots from this morning.

Have a happy weekend!
