These past few years
I have been doing a lot
of practicing on
not being afraid
and I find that there has been
a major shift
in how I define
checking in to ask
what do I get to do?
what will align with my purpose?
what do I really want in this moment?
what would be fun and create joy?
not taking "doing life" too seriously.
I have been teaching a fair amount of classes
and I feel so happy
Here's a peak at some recent student creativity...
Jan Mullen's fishez, leavez, and daisiez
Another "Lattice" from the book Colorific
Jan Mullen's Catz
This lady was crazy creative!
Once a week I have been finding joy
while working in Calico Creations quilt shop.
I have progressed from getting no fabric to
getting a ridiculous amount of fabric to
now where I get some fabric and
I bring my own fabric to play with
when business is slow.
Since the slow time
never lasts too long
I decided to just do some cutting
2 1/2 inch strips
and 6 inch squares.
Here's some of my favorites...
Then I saw this quilt by Freddy Moran
just off the long arm at Judy's
and now my 6" squares are being divided into 3" squares!
I have also been happily stripping!
and diamond style!
doesn't mean perfect
or without hardship
ahhh...what a relief!
I'll end with pure joy...
our new rescue,
