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:
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!!|
