Inspiring Quilters, Stitch by Stitch
I''m a newbee starting today and am glad to meet you all from a little town in Virginia. Today is a new day for me...a new beginning sounds repetitive, but often I find we need to repeat to ourselves the inspirational words to keep going like the little engine..."I think I can, I think I can, I think I can!"
Setting up this page takes more energy to the computer dumb and I'm exhausted by the simple process it is supposed to be. I would rather plan and construct a quilt.
Anyway, on to the point. Today is a beautiful Fall day full of promise and many projects on the list to be started and completed. Fall is my "New Year" and the state of mind that causes me to pause and reflect and plan for the next 12 months. I always feel re-energized and excited and anticicipate changes. It seems that the harvest theme for this season causes me to go into planning mode as well as finish mode (harvesting in a way).
With that in mind, I feel inclined to share a wonderful experience that I believe is providential to my new beginning. Sunday night I shed an old skin, so to speak, that was itching to be removed. With that gone, I had an open calendar and opportunities to explore. Well...Monday morning I went into a new quilting store and who walked up beside me but an old friend I haven't seen or crossed paths with in 15 years. It was just as though we saw each other last week...didn't miss a beat. Then Tuesday I went to Joann's Fabric store, and while trying to coordinate fabrics...I met a new friend. I can't wait to see what today brings!
And as a last note and view into my little world...My hens are crowing and cackling like they are having a party. It's been raining for a few days and you can imagine the bug harvest out there this morning! If I could speak hen I believe they would be singing praises and thanksgiving songs. They are a joyous flock indeed. And...someone left an egg on my back porch. I don't know why she does that but every few days she decides to bless me up close and personal. I guess she wants to stand out in the crowd?
