Had our meeting of Kansas Troubles at one of the local quilt shops today. It was inspiring and soul searching. By soul searching I find out more about myself and my likes and dislikes. Today's patterns are being streamlined to keep more people (young and old ) in the sewing loop , which is good in one respect. But I find I value more of the traditional ways and visual pleasures of quilting. Not that I am an expert at them by any means. However I do take pleasure in the effects of traditioal ways of doing things. An example would be I like hand applique , does not mean I am any good at it . But I appreciate it! I am also of a mind set the more one does of a thing the better you get. In hopes that theory is true in its heart , I am trying , even though sometimes it defintely is not perfect. So that being said here are two of the next JUST TAKES 2 blocks.
Feeling a little under the weather I did not get much else done , I even baked pizza for supper and took a nap. So much for today , will try harder tomorrow. Keep stitching on! martha
