One thing I noticed about blogging every day is that I took time to really look at things to see if anything was blogworthy (blogworthiness is in the eye of the beholder, obviously) and that the month of July was probably the slowest month so far this year! All the other months seemed to go by in a blur--making me stare openmouthed at the last date I posted and wondering where all the time went. So maybe blogging every day (or at least more often) is a good way to slow life down. The most amazing thing of all is that so many people seem to enjoy these random thoughts and pictures. My thanks to you all for hanging in (or is that hanging ON?).
At the hand-pieced Drunkard's Path class today, that prolific Judy E. from Auburn brought in both of her hand pieced bliss tops as well as her son's wedding quilt. Okay, can you believe this? The wedding isn't for two more weeks and she has the quilt done and bound! Lacks just the label! She makes so many of us (me included) look like a slacker!
But, I digress! First up is her bliss quilt done in Christmas fabrics. It is so rich and warm looking. (Please remember that, as always, the pictures are my fault, not the quilter's!)
On her non-Christmas bliss, Judy had used a stripe--remember I showed you a portion in another post? Well, she wanted the corners to maintain the pattern (they would normally be cut as half-square triangles), so she worked to get them just right by piecing them! They are wonderful!
Here's a pic of the whole quilt. Not a good representation of the colors--the detail shot is pretty true. She did both these quilts in the time most students did one! And did the wedding quilt as well! Fabulous job, Judy!
Well, I'd better not keep Richard waiting any longer--he's sitting at the computer hitting the refresh button hoping that this post will be extra special--we'll have to stay tuned to the comments to see if it met his expectations!
I know I've said this many times, but you each need to remember how special and unique you are. No one can be a better you than you are. It may look like someone has so much more than you do, but you don't necessarily know what burdens come with those perceived riches. I am trying every day to be thankful for the many blessings I receive--and there are many. I count each of you among those blessings.
Hugs to you all,
