Tuesday Chit Chat


My challenge with the Curiosity Experiment was in trying to decipher the question... What if I say yes?  For a couple of days I thought about saying yes to much may tip my world and maybe it is a reverse thought...I should really be establishing boundaries because saying yes to much is in fact saying no to myself???  Or...saying yes may open new adventures or creativity???  Ultimately, where I found my answer was in acceptance...saying yes to who I am...mind, body and soul has brought me a contentment about being alone with myself.  So...I am saying yes to myself, to some quiet time...to realizing my own company can sometimes be enough.

I don't think I ever shared this pillow I made for a dear friends birthday...I loved making it in colors that are so her.  I never worry about finding pillow inserts to fit since I usually make my own.  I have demonstrated the process on the Quilt Roadies video but it may be time to do it again!


I continue to plug away on my Sisters Outdoor Quilt Show deadlines!  I am making good headway on the  auction quilt...but, I realized that I also have a couple of personal stitch challenges to finish this month and next or I will be hearing all kinds of complaining from girlfriends!!  

Have a wonderful Tuesday...and keep in mind if you have nothing to do on Thursday and are going to be in Sisters...come visit me at the Stitchin' Post during Customer Appreciation Days where I will be demonstrating Sashiko!!!  Can't wait to see you!!

  6. Love the idea of doing something each day that makes you giggle. We all need to nurture our inner child!
    Thought of you today as I was working with my wool mat - like. you I'm not exactly enamored with the smell, but it sure does a great job so guess we'll just have to bear with the odor.
