It appears I’m a total failure at Doing Nothing. I’ve been trying over the weekend, after another bit of unexpected work popped up last week. But Doing Nothing is going to require more effort on my part. I think it might help if I could remove all the color temptations around here. This bit of crochet quickly turned into this:And I couldn’t resist playing with the fat quarters Jennifer Paganelli sent me of her upcoming Jenny Eliza prints. Thank you Jennifer! (Jenny Eliza is her brand of fabrics available at Joann’s.) She asked me to do my thing, and maybe throw in some fussy cutting, or not. I obliged. You can see how easy it was.The whimsical print is just begging for fussy cutting. Here, I have isolated four of the designs in this 10″ block. I will keep adding some borders and details before deciding on its finished state. There will be a free pattern forthcoming. In the meantime, I have the rest of the prints to play with.And then…it was time to make the Color Therapy block for November. So I chose more Kaffe prints and started sewing. Royal Blue and Sky are the colors for the month. Without even looking at my Kaffe stash I knew I’d find the perfect prints. It makes me think of the beach–blue sky, deep water and a bit of sand.
This week is Thanksgiving here in the US. We’ll be getting together with family and eating too much food. It’s the first of the holiday festivities and a great chance to stop and think about all the good things in our lives. Just a few of the Good Things on my list:
- Time to create and make
- An outlet to share all of the creations
- A great group of readers who share my passion for color and creativity–you’re all wonderful and I’m so grateful for you!
- People who inspire me to keep creating and doing
- And of course, a friendly neighbor cat who has made Casa P her second home.I’ll try to do better at Doing Nothing this week. Maybe after all the eating and visiting on Thursday, I’ll be in the right frame of mind. What do you think the odds are of that happening?
