It is time again for a Tuesday filled with…….
Last week, I wanted to make a pincushion and had the “brilliant” idea to use up some orphan blocks that I had sitting around.
I pulled out the box innocently called…….
But when I opened it, I realized that it was really ……
….a PANDORA’s Box!!!
There are fabrics and blocks in here that range back to the early 1990’s when I was very young in my quilting career.
There are 1.25 inch strips that were used to hook a rug for my Daughter, Autumn color blocks that were left over from a jacket that I made to wear to my first Houston Quilt Show in 1990, ties that I took from my Dad’s closet when he passed away in 1999, and SO many other memories.
Now, I need to use all of this as inspiration to move forward to making new, fun quilts for our Guild’s Charity Bee. There are several ladies in the group who are amazingly talented at turning nothing into something and maybe, with some practice, I can join them!!!
Moral of this story……don’t open that box….. it may be scarier that you thought!!!
