I was all fired up with inspiration after having a date with Noah to Moneyball. Arrived home and got him in bed and then a burst of energy was upon me...and hours later a spring-cleaned quilting room and so ready for a new quilt to begin! And look who became my new pin cushion! After 4 years, I decided it was time to do the formal pin thing...Organization is not always my forte and so magnets from Noah's toybox have been my option up until now... And my new project you ask?...
A number of ideas swimming in my mind but with these holiday fabrics I am thinkin g a Hickory Dickory wonky clock from Quilt Mania for my nephews for Christmas and a second quilt with a wonky village....but you know how my mind works...may turn out completely different and that it is what is so fun for me...the creative process and the circuitous journey it takes me on!
Speaking of journeys, My Valor block for V is complete and in the mail flying to her home. Have you seen the other blocks posted on the 15 Minute Play blog, so beautiful and noble! I always love the collaborative quilts with V because I am encouraged to do a block that is enjoyable and rewarding.
And for all of you supportive friends who have brought giggles to my heart and soul as I wrote of the cooking adventures that Noah and are headed for while Sean is gone....Well, My little dude has been raised well by my dear husband. Our first night he created a shredded beef taco salad and last night, "Mom, how about some surf and turf. I see the steak you defrosted and then there are these shrimp we can add. And would you like a wedge or cabbage salad?".....and the topper of this is when he is taking a photo of each dish to send to Sean. Last night's response, "Nice presentation, Noah"....and the night before, "Thanks for taking care of your mom. You are the man of the house the next weeks and thanks!"
And now I will get a Kleenex.....Thank you friends and God for the support and fun along this journey of life.
