Inside Out...and a quilt preview


I am participating in Free Spirit Knits e-course "Inside Out" (you can find info here). The e-course is amazing. I have really enjoyed the first week. I am not sitting in judgement of myself, which is nice for a change. There is a lot of creative play and I had forgotten how much I liked cutting words out of magazines. I know we all did it in junior high and high school. We would sit for hours, making posters for ourselves and for friends. It was fun then (with the rubber cement high) and is fun now (without the rubber cement). I will be continuing this weekend, moving into paints!!!!

I also wanted to preview a new project that am working on. I will be finishing this week, so completed project will make its debut sometime next week. Until then....


I know, really pretty. I love this fabric combination! The cool tones of the gray with the pop of pink and fuschia. Girly without being "my little pony". I love all of the fabric lines that are represented and will get you a list. I purchased from Poppy Seed Fabric and Fabric.com

Next post is the quilt I made for my husband, my own design and everything. The weather has been so terrible here that I couldn't get a decent picture. So today is a beautiful sunny (albeit snowy) day and My family will be outside holding that quilt up to the sun. (Have I mentioned that I really miss the other seasons of the year. I mean a mom can only make so much hot chocolate!!!!!)

There is another soul in this house who enjoys the sunshine.


Have a great day!!!

The colors are wonderful. Looking forward to seeing a picture of the finished quilt.

I really enjoyed playing with words too. I still have a pile that didn't make it into my journal. Wondering what to do with them.

Love those patterns and colors! Cutting up magazines never gets old to me! I like the mindless, meditative aspect of it, too. Happy day.
