There is a serious mistake in this block. I elected to leave it and continue on ... the marbled fabric is precious to me and I am working with small amounts of it as well as the others - no room for waste on this one!
Quilters who plan and chart and predetermine their design and fabric choices are my heroes. I am always in awe of that kind of meticulous productivity. Although having tried it, over and over, this is a system that does not work for me. I get busy - either it happens, or it doesn't. I cross my fingers and pray to the fiber Gods to make my yardage follow me to the finish!
This morning's effort is my pet, so far. I should be out planting the lettuce and onion sets, but this little charmer has me glued to the sewing area.
Truthfully, I have no concept of where this project is headed. What I do know is that it soothes me and quiets the desire to hop in the car and head for the shore. As I work, I think ocean thoughts. I let the sounds and images of my favorite landscape guide me. I read somewhere recently that if one listed one's three greatest desires, and none of the three conflicted with the others, one could be assured a happy life.
Think about it.
Mysotis - everywhere I look - not one area where it was originally planted. Forget-me-not ...
