I just pulled out an applique project I started in 2001. I only made two 18" blocks and then it got put away. I still like it but I don't think I'll ever finish it. I can incorporate the fabrics into my stash no problem but, what do I do with the two finished blocks and the 10 other 18" squares I have cut out?
I also read "Lining up my Stitches" blog by Juliann who is taking the time to be more thoughtful, quiet, and enjoy some simpler pleasures. I know I enjoy life more when I don't fill it to the brim with things to do. Just pick out a few good things and then enjoy the process. (Oh, and make sure I have a bakery item close by~)
I began going through my box of patterns from magazines and the internet to see if I still want to use them. AM I REALLY GOING TO MAKE ALL THESE and the 100's more?
Sorry about the blurry pictures.
I took them through the plastic sleeves and so the quality is diminished.
It is such a beautiful today that spending some time sitting in the sun and pondering will give me as much joy as I usually get by appliqueing new leaves on the latest block or making a sensational dessert. (Although dessert IS pretty important - ha!
