One more brag about the progress of my yard. I wish I could remember the name of this bush – it has long spindly branches with bright green leaves and yellow pom-pom blooms. Dora (my fiber artist bud) was thinning out this bush and gave me a few clumps of it. There’s always the fear it won’t be happy in my yard, but it's blooming really nice for a new transplant.
Now for the quilt dish. A few weeks ago my quilt bud Sue and I attended our Guild’s weekend workshop. I was excited to attend, I felt “one” with this workshop – this is right up my alley. Finally a Scrappy workshop! We were told how many colors to choose and given cutting directions prior to class.
Once there, the instructor would walk us through putting the first block together. Quickly I deflate because I’m not loving the colors I’ve picked out. Mine aren’t going together super cool like everyone else’s. All the other blocks (including Sue’s) have a pop of color. Ahh, mine aint poppin’. At the time I pulled my colors, I had no idea how the blocks would go together. What’s happening? Am I rusty at scrappy? Have I lost my mo-jo? This isn’t what I had in mind at all……
What made me think that orange could sit
right up next to that yellow?
Err, all the fabric is cut for 16 blocks. Not sure if I should finish the rest of the blocks or stop where I’m at. Decisions....decisions........
