Today is a day to give thanks. I have much in my life to be thankful for: family, friends, a job that allows me to not only do what I love but to also provide for my family. I have so many blessings in my life.
Right now one of my many blessings is the return of my creativity. I mentioned before that it’s been a rough year. The events of the year took a toll on me that I never expected. I have been working hard to pull myself back up and recently threw myself back into quilting. I showed you my Christmas tree quilt top last week. This week I want to give you a sneak peek of a new pattern I’m working on.
I love paper piecing. The precision of it, the intricate designs that come from it. I also love curves. Both of these things used to intimidate me so much, but not anymore. Not only have I conquered paper piecing, but I also helped my awesome middle school students to conquer it.
All of these blocks are now completed and are in the process of being turned into bags and pillows. One more blessing in my life, I get to share my passion and love for quilting with the next generation of quilters. These kids are so talented!
I hope everyone is having a happy and blessed Thanksgiving.
Very happy you finding your creativity again!! Love you!!!
You have some students with a great sense of color! I’m so glad life is easing up on you. I imagine finishing your coursework helped some, and it’s nice to see balance returning. =)
Your students are talented indeed, but credit also needs to go to their teacher for knowing how to teach that to them!! They are going to make gorgeous pillows and bags!!
