When New Years day rolled in, I was busy cutting, sewing and putting together the Orca Bay quilt by Bonnie Hunter. With Christmas and all the holiday happenings, I was behind on that mystery quilt. So I was making good progress when a turn of events halted all my progress and it has been sitting in my sewing room ever since.
The first week in January was a tragic one for someone I know and their family. Suddenly, when saying how sorry I was just did not sound like enough and almost seemed empty in some way to me. Nor the fact when offering to help in any way I could (and mean it) but at the same time know your help won't be asked for, it certainly left me with a funny feeling.
This is what is on my design wall today, almost ready to stitch together and add the borders. I searched through my saved images of quilts I liked, and found this one. I remember when I saved the picture, I did so so I could find the pattern, but alas, no pattern was found so I did what I usually do, just look at the photo and figure it out.
Does that ever happen to you? Start something then get derailed and a new project opens up and the old one gets shoved to the side?? Or is that just what happens to me?? Have a great Monday...I am off to get this one off the design wall and start sewing!!
Today, I am linking in with Design Wall Monday with Judy....there are really a lot of great quilts there which offers a lot of inspiration!
