Think about this.....

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

I have a variety of sunflowers growing around the property. Here are a few hanging around in our eating area.

Simple. Sunflowers are just simple flowers. Like this bag. It's pretty simple. Yet, I really love how it turned out.

New Bag
This was yesterday morning's project. Yesterday afternoon I began a new series with Leah Day on how to make a whole cloth quilt. I had to preview the introduction and preparation series before I could actually do anything beyond.

Afterwards, while waiting for my whole cloth fabric to be washed and dried, I started cleaning out the guest room closet for the next DW load. Here's what I ended up getting sidetracked with.

Dog beds for the Eaton Co. Human Society
This is some poly fabric my dad picked up for me at his local bridge club yard sale. I used the batting strips that are too small to keep for anything for the stuffing and I'll drop those off later today when they open.

Moving along. I was able to unearth this quilt and backing pair. It's good to have clothes on DW again.

Christmas Cats
After getting all that done, I was able to actually work on my new whole cloth thing again. I think we're calling this hearts and feathers.

Hearts and Feathers
I know the pic isn't the greatest, but if you look carefully, you can make out where it is I might be going with this.

It's just going to be a small quilt (I don't want to tackle a large one to start in case I don't like this whole cloth thing). It's just a dip of the toes into the lake per se.

Today I have to bind a charity quilt I volunteered to bind from last Thursday's meeting. Nobody wanted to fess up to ownership, and Carol R. quilted it and asked for someone to bind and label it, so I volunteered. I'm not sure what the big deal is about binding. I actually find it very relaxing and enjoyable to finally "close the envelope", if you will.

After I finish that I'll long arm a bit, perhaps whole cloth some, and see what other kind of mischief I can get into in here.

  1. It's not a big deal to me either... I just felt that since I was doing the quilting for FREE, that the person who pieced it ( or someone else) could do the binding & label. I'm learning to 'draw the line' on what I will and won't do/have or don't have time for.
