For a Good Cause

Here is the tote bag I made to hold spa items and a gift certificate.  It was all donated to MawPa Siberian Husky Rescue for it's annual fundraiser.  I am please that the person who won really loved the bag.

Made lots of progress on things this weekend.  Borders are on the purple block exchange top and I am very happy with it.  It won't be a large quilt.  Just enough to make for a fun quilting opportunity.  I am going to experiment with new quilting designs i have been inspired by on Pinterest.  I get a lot of inspiration there.

Pinterest was where I got the idea for this off center log cabin block.  The other blocks are from a panel I cut into blocks and i wanted something interesting to go around them.  i was going to mix it up with different blocks.  However, this block proved to be enough of a challenge that I decided to stick with it.  I just could not wrap my head around the order of the piecing!  and the graduating colors only added to the confusion.  But after several attempts and my trusty seam ripper, I think I finally nailed it.  i am going to like my coffee quilt.

Stuck for Inspiration

I have been very stuck for inspiration and motivation lately, so I have started art journaling.  Even there, I still stare at the blank page for a while.  so, I began with my little birdie.  She seems to be my muse lately.  Not knowing whether to stay in the comfort of her tree or fly away and be free.

We all must start our journey somewhere.  Might as well start at a new beginning.
