The More Productive I am.....

This is my mantra for the week:
The more productive I am, the luckier I will become.
OK, if you are wondering... what is up with the quote?   Well currently I am hooked into looking up a new mantra each week based on this posting: 
http://www.marcandangel.com/2011/01/17/52-monday-morning-stress-reduction-mantras/ 
I probably need more explanation,  like about the 'luckier' part,  but you know what??  It is a New Year, and I am just going to go with it.  I have saved this posting where I re-read it each week.   I just scan down the list and pick what looks good to me.... there are 52 of them!  What does amaze me is that whatever I choose always seems to fit!  Trusting my instincts.
Besides, I am 'jazzed up' about the whole notion of productivity and the 'practical', especially after this past weekend's workshop, and I like the word 'Practical',  perhaps because the word 'practice' is built right in! 
Practice is great!
On that note but before I go.... I wanted to post a few photos of inspirations/aspirations as a dear friend and sewing companion is planning a Quilting Retreat for this coming March (so excited) I think I have found my project to work on at the retreat.... 
Check it out!!
This pattern just 'speaks' to me; and it is saying "Sew me!"

I love this pattern, as it is 'scrappy' ( lots of different fabrics, in small pieces) which entails sharing of fabrics amongst sewing friends! That in itself will make this project special. This will probably be 'it'!

But I am looking at this pattern too! I just love this pattern, it is an 'American Jane' pattern (aka Sandy Klop design). I love all things 'American Jane' especially her fabric lines.  So vintagey! 
Happy sewing and productivity Everyone!!
