I had fun today. First thing this morning, a haircut, or as I call it, a dip & clip! Four ladies whom I've met in classes at The Fabric Patch invited me to join them on their sew-in today. We used the classroom there. It was a lot of fun just sitting in a relaxed atmosphere sewing on our projects. Of course, I always manage to do more visiting than sewing, but it's good to be with other quilters, and nice ones at that!
I decided to start my string quilt that I got the pink, orange, yellow fabric for a couple of months ago. To start this was challenging: I had to overcome a few inhibitions - scrappy, random and brights - all in one day! LOL!
I managed to get four blocks done, and I can see that it'll be fun to make a few of these every weekend. It's bright! It's scrappy! It's random! I can do it!!
And it's always fun getting to visit with Jane. I bought a few more brights for my Freddy collection, and a couple of small cuts I'll need for the new "Pumpkin Hill" pattern by Anne Sutton of Bunny Hill Designs. I have all of the rest of the fabric needed for that one! :)
I'm smiling today and my heart is happy.
My gratitude today is the pure joy Daisy displayed when I got home. Yep, she knows I love her!
