One – the quilt top in the picture above is finished! It was a bit of a beast, mostly because it was a foundation pieced project which is a new to me technique and it took me awhile to get the hang of it. But I finished on Wednesday afternoon and have only three small pieces of the background fabric left.
Two – I got to have coffee with three of my local quilting friends. The weather was lovely so we were able to sit outside. After two hours, we needed to stop because our throats were getting sore from so much talking.
Three – I am reading two books that have really captured my heart. Both are fiction. I read one in the morning and the other in the evening and I am trying not to rush – they are that good. (Trying not to rush because they are good, not because I want to save them for bingo squares but . . .)
On the downside, I just cannot seem to write a May One Word post. I have started and stopped many times this week but nothing was clicking. I loved Carolyn’s packet and have been thinking about rituals that feed and rituals that drain. For now, I am going to set that post aside. Maybe once I let go of the “deadline”, the ideas will begin to flow. Hello to grace, goodbye to pressure.
