Think about this.....

...the only thing scarier then reaching out to the unknown is settling for that with which we are comfortable.

Sunny Days

When I say sunny days it reminds me of Sesame Street, you know, because of the song. But it was sunny yesterday and today's starting out the same way. For some reason, it seems like I'm more productive when it's sunny out in the winter. Not so much in the summer (probably because I'm outside doing stuff instead of in here).

Here was the first thing I completed.

Craftsy 2012 BOM with added Scrap Squad Exchange Blocks
This quilt will not be for sale since some of the blocks included were made specifically for me during our Scrap Squad block exchange in 2013.

Next up (and the above took me most of the day) was going through Jen's box. I had already started thinking about what to do for her, but after reading her journal and instructions, basically came up empty. I started playing around with some of her suggestions and thought I had settled on something last night, but then while feeding the birds this morning, came up with something entirely different. I'll get started on that next week and hopefully be finished with her row prior to leaving on Friday.

While waiting for Jim to get home last night, I loaded this little charity piece up and watched a few Angela Walters videos to get some quilting inspiration.

Colorful Bargello
I wish this Bargello was bigger then it really appears, which is why I'll donate it as a lap quilt to the VA in the fall. I think I'll throw some meandering feathers randomly throughout to give me some practice on those and fill in with some open swirls or paisley's.

Jim has a short run today so he'll be home by lunch. I think we are still on a sandal/casual shoe mission (like last weekend) so I don't know how much studio time I'm actually going to get today, but we'll take what we can and run with it.
