Memorable Quotes

Though we can never leave life without experiencing some measure of loss, grief, and pain, misery is optional--as is happiness.

Beverly Campbell

When I stand before God at the end of my life, I would hope that I would not have a single bit of talent left and could say, "I used everything you gave me."

Flying Geese

I am overrun with leftover fabric, donated fabric, scaps, etc.  I decided to do something about it.  I was inspired by Karen of Anna Lena Land.  She has a Facebook page called Quilt Block A Day.  This year she is doing Flying Geese.  She has a wonderful tutorial on her blog.  I got busy and every morning before work I make eight flying geese.  It takes about 10-15 minutes.  I've been using up scraps and small pieces of fabric.  At first I tried to color coordinate but then I just decided to go for it, pull fabric and start cutting.  I usually have all the squares cut and those that need to be ironed done either the night before or I have even cut enough for a whole week.  Then in the morning I can just sew.  I've found her instructions and measurements very accurate and easy to follow.

Being organized is not one of my strengths but......

Scary......I know where everything is!  I even keep the instructions and pictures of flying geese quilts that I like in the container.

I now have quite a few geese flying around my quilt room.  I'm not sure what I will do with them yet but Karen has been posting some wonderful ideas.

Have a great week. If you live in the Pacific Northwest try to stay dry or out of the snow.
