Things are picking up in the real estate biz, as they do here in WNY in the spring. Budgeting my time between all the things I am interested in for quilts and albums and real estate is something I keep working on. Getting up very early in the morning seems to work best for me to ensure I get my creative time. I do some handwork in the evening after we settle in, but I grow weary and my eyes start to close . . . and before I know it, I have drifted off to sleep and have missed the TV show that I was watching w/ my husband. Thank goodness for DVR. We tape most of our fav shows and then watch them when we have time!
If I really look into my stash, I can find some fabrics that look great together. . and, if I was not challenging myself to use up a lot of my stash in 2013, I might have skipped over them and ended up at the quilt shop purchasing yet MORE fabric! An article in the recent American Patchwork & Quilting magazine addressed putting unexpected combinations of stash fabrics together. That issue arrived in my mailbox just in time for me to put the info into action!
How to decide on borders for some of my quilts.
What I appreciate:
The gift of a new day.
A world at peace.
