A journey (or a quilt) of a thousand miles (stitches)...

I am getting ready to begin. I think I finally chose the pattern and sorted my jelly roll strips so that I can begin tomorrow. It is after 10 so not really the best time to get started. I was home all day today and spent the day catching up with myself. Unfortunately, the sewing was at the bottom of the list. It was a rather gray day but I didn't mind at all. I even kept the windows open all day and while it wasn't cool it wasn't too hot either.

I am finding myself with a mystery on my hands. As those of you who have been reading for awhile know, I did sort and store my stash a few weeks ago. I was sure I had a container for all my sunflower fabric but now I can't find it. You know it is probably right in front of me. I stood in the closet staring at the labels and just can't find it. I have a friend who felt that once she told someone that she was searching for something that something would be found so... since I just told all of you, maybe I will find it. I want to put my new fabric away so it is in the right place. I am trying to stay organized!

Time to get ready for tomorrow. Iron my clothes, etc. and then tomorrow I will take that single step (cutting and then stitching) to make my next quilt.


  1. I love, love, love the feeling I get when I'm starting a new project- all the possibilities are in front of me! Can't wait to follow your progress.

  2. Yes, being organized helps the creativity so much. When I begin something I love to be able to just go pull fabric. That makes me happy.
