Don’t you just love getting stuff in the mail??? I know I do. And this week, I received two great packages. First was a pack of scraps from Pink Chalk Fabrics. Debbie from A Quilter’s Table recommend to check them out for scrap packs, and I did. I was not disappointed when I received my pack from them!!! It was very reasonable and there was a lot of fabric in the pack and they are beautiful.
Today, I received a package from Debbie herself with 2 ziploc bags full of fabric scraps! I feel so blessed. What a generous package of scraps to work with on my #scrappytripalong quilt. Thank you Debbie for being so thoughtful.
Also, I feel like I have been having a creative block because I just can’t get together an idea of what I want to do quilting wise this year. Nothing seems appealing, except the scrappytripalong. I realized this morning–everything I had been working on the last quarter of 2012 was in rush mode. I was so busy from October on that I never had a chance to enjoy the process or time I spend quilting. Well…I decided this morning that even if it takes a year to do a scrappy quilt, or a month to quilt up my Mom’s quilt, I am just going to enjoy the time. So…I am going to get a bunch of projects cut and then start working on them. There are no deadlines to get things done (so far) and I want to slow down and enjoy something I started as a hobby, but then turned it into what I do with everything else…hurry hurry rush rush get it done so I can move on to the next thing.
On a side note, I did figure out how/what I am going to do with my granny squares. I have the project drawn out and know how many granny squares I need…like 420 or something crazy like that. Good thing it’s a project that I just do while I watch TV…once again no rush! I like that.
