From the Quote Box

We are at our very best, and we are happiest, when we are fully engaged in work we enjoy on the journey toward the goal we’ve established for ourselves. It gives meaning to our time off and comfort to our sleep. It makes everything else in life so wonderful, so worthwhile. — Earl Nightingale

The Delivery Guy Cometh

what started out as a quick trip to the Missouri Star Quilt Company website for a Mother’s Day gift ended up with a box on my doorstep today. I’m such a sucker for color cards for threads and such… seriously. And of course once that was in my cart the rest was downhill. There was a matching 30th anniversary bag and then… well. Blues. You know. Because. Blues.

In another couple days there will be another package or two on my doorstep because I signed up for a three week watercolor class online. Looks like great fun and I’m counting on it to get me out of my tendency to work really small and pale. Can you believe it – me? working small and pale? That’s not what I do in fabric but it seems to be what I do in paint. So here it goes – big juicy watercolor with Fred Lisaius. This has a different kind of stash, no doubt about it, but there’s a familiar discussion about cotton fibers and sizing so…

Anyway that starts tomorrow and hopefully the packages will arrive on Wednesday. I do have paint and such to get started if I need to leap in tomorrow. Or I could just do a load of wash and iron all that fabric and… cut it up?
