blessed beyond measure
I am sewing...every single day.
My brain is sweating and my lower back is mad about my poor posture
but, I am sewing.
And I am loving it.
I am learning so much.
-following the quilt along instructions about fat quarters is a good idea (I did not follow)
-6.5 quilting squares are not made equal...go with the grip...pay the extra
-straight lines are not always straight
-my dog Titus likes to sit behind me on the chair while I sew (and rest his head on me)
-if you place your layout on the floor everyone has an opinion...including the dog
-math is good.
What I am learning the most about quilting is...
I got this.
I can do this.
This is a big project but I have time.
Live and learn.
Stitch rippers are so handy.
Color makes the world go round.
Working with your hands and using your creativity is life giving.
Sewing penny patches makes you think of love.
and even if in the end I don't like it or if it is not my best work,
I can proudly say,
"I did this! I did not give up! I am awesome"
and then I will watch Kid President.
In no particular order:
-a home in which folks gather to sing, play music, eat and simply be
-the time and ability to make things with my hands
-romps with Titus at the dog park
-carnitas tacos from the taco truck down the road
-breakfast dates with friends
-stripey tees, stocking stuffers, quilt making, roasted almonds,be thou my vision, trip planning, gold polka dots, grace and magnolia leaves.
WHAT ARE YOU GRATEFUL FOR THIS FRIDAY?
