Enjoy the Season

I rcvd a GREAT package of fabrics in my SERIOUS STASH SWAP I ran on 15 minutes from TONI.  She included in her package these little 9 patch bits and pieces, and before I could put the fabrics away, inspiration struck!  

They are 3.5" 9 patches,and I thought, I must be bale to make something with them!

I had just read a thought for the day saying to take time to reflect during the Holidays, and not get so wrapped up in all the hustle and bustle with being TO BUSY.  So I took a few minutes this morning to play...  It started with 15 minutes... then it grew into another 15 minutes, and another....

Then I started thinking about playing with my Aurifil threads... But I didn't think she was quite ready for that.. So I ironed some of the hand dyed fabrics from the past weekend, and thought... 

Hmmm... what if I.....

Possibilities!  Use up what I have!

and then, 

What if I dug out the flowers Michele gave me....

 And if I dug out the Beads...

and then....


I'm definitely enjoying the moment...

....To be Continued.
