So I have begun working on some of the projects I wanted to do "just because". Because it sounded like fun, or because it's a UFO I want to finish, projects just for me!
liberated" project. It was begun in a class with Janet Root at Guild nearly TWO years ago! Not only did I stretch myself with the piecing of this project, but I have been using the quilting as practice and a way to stretch my abilities.
Of course, Leah is my inspiration! I don't know the names she gave these designs, but they were fun to do.
I have to rant for a minute about the increasing number of public places that feel the need to "freshen" the air by spraying chemicals into it that we are all forced to breathe. I have allergies and/or a chemical sensitivity to scents. I can't even walk into some public places, especially restrooms!!! Try holding your breath for the entire time it takes you to relieve yourself sometime and you may get a glimpse into why I am ranting. I cannot imagine why even people who are not sensitive to it would want to breathe dangerous chemicals!
I guess, then, that I will make this also my green tip of the week: THINK about the chemical pollutants you are putting into the air, the water and the garbage.
I am grateful for:
The nights I can sleep.
Being able to help a friend when she needed it.
Snuggling under quilts when the weather outside is frightful.
Letting my inner 6 year old out to play .
