Smile, It's Monday!
As I was slogging through sewing triangles together for this quilt, fussing with pressing little seams open and dealing with the frustrations I feel with precision piecing, I took a little break and headed to Ellen's blog, growing gills. Ellen's is one of those blogs I head to first. She's not a quilter in the traditional sense. She quilts with words and pictures. She inspires me, and this morning she reminded me to look around and again count my blessings. There is beauty around me, I am blessed in so many ways. I abandoned my feelings of frustration and started again refreshed. I plan to have the top pieced by the end of the day.
When I'm finished I'm going to reward myself with some time to play with scraps from these pillows. I think they might turn into something for the kitchen.
So, what's putting a grin on your face today?
