life as it currently stands
See that pretty fabric? I picked it up at JoAnn's a couple weeks ago, and I plan on making a whole cloth quilt with it. The hexagon flowers will have hand quilting around the outside, and the center hexagon. Cute, right?
I learned about whole cloth quilts in the Handstitched class that I took this summer, and now I'm all excited to start this. I also have other fabric to make one of these, and plan on it being a Christmas gift for my 7-year-old sister.
But have I started the flannel hexagon quilt? Did I make any of the projects from my summer class? Has the fabric for Grace's quilt even come out of the bag?
No. Why? Because life is crazy full of wonderful work.
Over the course of the last, oh, six months, I've been working on some really lovely and often exciting things. Some you've already seen and some aren't quite ready to share yet.
For example, I can't show you anything right away, but I can tell you that I'm illustrating an eBook for children and families. What? I'm still amazed at this one. More details will follow as soon as we're bit farther along.
All of this to say, life has me feeling tired, blessed, too busy to do all I want to do, and happy to be working on things that I love. God is good.
Still, it makes me sad to see projects and supplies just sitting there when I want to make something with them! Maybe in between all of the crazy, I'll sneak in some small progress on these less important projects. Just for the joy of it. You wouldn't mind a few boring "here's the tiny bit that I've done since the last time I blogged about it" posts, would you?
I hope not.
