BOLDLY, WITH COLOR!!


Monday, November 09, 2009



Isn't this just the MOST?! I found it on Jonathan Lockwood's page of ispirational quotes. It has inspried me to do the day BOLDLY, WITH COLORS!

I am making some great Christmas stockings for my deployed soldiers. I found the pattern on Eleanor Burns' TV show. I am making the stip stockings for the guys, and Crazy Quilt ones for the girls.

It's a lot of fun, and I need a break from the Ally Cat Quilts by Krackers today. Sometimes I just have to go in a different direction to find my spark toward life again. Making these quilts can be quite an emotional toll on me. I find that if I take a break once in a while, I am re-energized and better equipped to handle my emotions.

I will post photos of the stockings when I get them finished.

In the meantime, what better place to live BOLDLY, WITH COLOR, than a QUILT ROOM???

    I had to go look up Ally Cat Quilts by Krackers. I think I have one of those patterns in my stash. I'm going to have to go tear out the boxes. Need to get in that room and make it useable again anyway.

    Love the "horse of many bold colors".
That's a wonderful gift you are making for the troops and a terrific way of re-enerigizing yourself.
Eagerly awaiting the photos of the Christmas Stocks.
