Guild challenge

Yellow and white is the color combination for March.  I used some yellow fabric that I sun printed.  I added the silver gear charms and white beads.  Silver is close enough to white in my opinion.  I really like gears but I am not really liking this piece.  It is okay.  Sometimes done has to be good enough.

Journal prompt #11

Next time you think of beautiful things, don't forget to count yourself.  Good quote!  Admittedly, it is a bit hard to read on the busy background.  Oh well.  I love the background!  I color copied one of my bead journals, also enlarged it.  Color copying is a great way to get two for one.
More and more I am learning to think of myself and my artwork as beautiful.  Adding beauty to this world is important to me.

Work in Progress Wednesday

The top photo is my crazy quilt block for February.  A bit late but finished.  I have a good start on my March block and should be able to get it finished by the end of the month.

The bottom photo is my block ready to be sent to The Canadian Sesquicentennial Quilt    I didn't plan for this block to be my bead journal for March but now it has to be.  I just don't have time to do another beaded piece in March.

Take a Stitch Tuesday

Sharon B shows us the pistil stitch this week.  This is a stitch that I am familiar with and use regularly.  I tried to be clever and use it in a new way.  I wasn't particularly successful.  I added some french knots to it.  Not terribly impressive.  Oh well, I was in a bit of a rush.

I heart Photography

It is pretty hard to take a bad photo in New Zealand.  Such a beautiful country!  Hubby says he would move there in a heartbeat.  As much as I loved the climate and the beauty there is no way I would move there.  I am a Canadian girl all the way.

Stitching almost everyday

This is my stitch a day project for February.  I am so pleased with it.  It makes me happy to look at it!  I have been stitching for March as well but I am a bit behind.  I don't have much on my calendar for the next couple of days so I am hoping to get caught up and post about it next week.  There are a number of projects that I am behind on doing.  I am trying to not let that bother me.

Journal prompts 9 and 10

Week #9 the quote is 'A good laugh and a long sleep are the two best cures anything.'  Laugh and sleep are definitely good!  Not sure if they are a cure for anything but it is possible!
Week #10 'There is a lot that is good in your life - don't take it for granted.  Don't get so focused on the struggles that you miss the gift of today.'  Since coming home from holiday my heart has been overflowing with gratitude.  I am so very blessed.  I do not take for granted all that is good in my life!  And there is an abundance of good!
