I often feel depressed in December and January. This year has been particularly bad for me. I have to force myself to go out for a walk, ski or snowshoe every day, otherwise the depression gets worse. The toll has been taken on my sewing this month. I haven't done much. But in an effort to be cheerful, I'll share the things that have brightened my days over the last couple of weeks.
Mail in the form of a pay it forward from Deanna at Wedding Dress Blue. She sent me this pretty needle case - along with the Christmas card. Love them both, even though they arrived long after Christmas.
So I am willing to Pay it Forward to two people who leave me a message. I will commit to making you a nice gift within the next six months.
Next I received this gorgeous block for the Christmas Block Swap Australia. (I'm not sure why it is called that but it is...)
Linda sent me this one, along with this lovely pile of Christmasy fabric. Love the fabrics in the block Linda - they look very modern to me. Oh and all the other fabric too. You are so generous!
Sewing progress has been slow, but I have made this block for a round robin with Sue. We signed up to do an intuition quilt with Victoria from Bumble Beans. My block is done and in the mail to Sue for the next round, or side or whatever she decides to do.
And finally, I've added a few more blocks to my colours quilt...
I desperately need yellows. If anyone has any yellow strips (need 14 inches long or shorter and any width down to 3/4 inch) that they feel like sharing please let me know. I really only want your scraps...not your main meal. :)
