Several days this week, my friend Deb has been coming to help me with piecing a new quilt. The project will have thousands of little, tiny pieces. We have both made a big mess with loads of scraps spread out all over several tables. We're watching Christmas movies, listening to Christmas music and otherwise having a great time while we work to make several hundred of these little cuties........
This will not be a quilt you can make quickly...and that is so OK with me. In the end, it will be worth it. We all have those projects that take their sweet 'ol time being made, and others that are done in a jiff. It's nice to have both. As I dig in my scrap bin, I'm finding fabrics that I haven't seen in years. They remind me of projects made long ago, or the store where I bought them, or the friends I was with at a particular quilt shop. So...this quilt is already full of memories....and while we're sewing, I'm making more!
Just another example of how I feed my soul with the stitches I sew.
Wishing you many happy stitches, too! Pam
