Running Backwards...

It seems lately that I seem to be running in place or better yet running backwards.  Although it feels exhausting I am not complaining...this week, 2 different people I know have lost an adult child.  It is so hard to fathom the loss of a child and as one grieving parent told me...you just aren't supposed to out live your children.  So, I am again reminded to be grateful...to open my heart to those who are trying to move forward when their pain stops them in their tracks.

I am embracing my quilt world...with all it's UFOs, WIPs and PIGs.  I am an evolving quilter :)  I am giving up goals for goals sake and I am embracing the process.  I finished my Tula Pink quilt for the Sisters Outdoor Quilt Show.  After coming back from Empty Spools Seminar with some new found tips I decided to face my quilt rather than finish it with a traditional binding.  Facing a quilt really makes it lay flat.  I love the look!

You can click on the photo to take a look at the quilting done by Kim at QuiltWorks

With the schedule I have been keeping I am slacking on the blog front and realized that I haven't shared the last sewing room I got to visit!!!  The Juniperberries meeting was held at Nola's house which is a lovely log home in the forest.  What a wonderful place to display one's quilts!!!

Enjoy the slide show!
