In spite of the cold and rain we are warm inside.
Today I finally finished another quilt that I have been experimenting with for months.
I decided to use a range of fabric squares from Denise Schmidt and randomly blocked them with white sashing. The fun has been the hand quilting in bright coloured embroidery cottons.
Sometimes no plan is the best plan. And the best creations just evolve when you trust in your instincts.
Today it is grey…… from the cold grey of the asphalt across at the school, to the concrete buildings and the sullen sky. The silhouette of the trees, bare and leafless.
Our house is still full of the chaos of a morning when all 6 of us leave the house early. The fog of unmade beds, clothing strewn across the floors, toys and papers, an unwiped table and the remnant of breakfast.
We need colour and calm.
We need spring to come.
We need new life and a new day.
