Improvising on Red n White quilts.... Just takes 2

I'm loving this mystery quilt.... I'd like to know what to expect on the finished size..   I'm also ad-libbin'.... IMPROVISATION is what I'm feeling and drivin to do on several of the 9 inch and 6 inch blocks....   I am such a rule-breaker.... and I always want to break away and feel the freedom of creativity!

Lest I forget to become a kinder person....

A Quilter's Word for Today....

my lesson learned.......

"As a stone can't be recovered once it's thrown, neither can the words we speak. Handle your words with care as they have more power than anything else."

I am only ashamed.....

of the times I do something that is dishonest.  I have only two - three instances in my life in which I'm deeply sorry for something I said.   WHY.... because even though I felt it to be a truth or true feeling at that time in my hurt the soul of a friend and I am forever sorry for saying it.  TODAY -- As I strive for maturity.... I certainly watch my mouth and weigh my words... and would a thousand-times rather be silent than to cause a hurt with my words....  

Recently, there is one trouble-some instance whereas a precious-weekly-meeting of hearts/friendship has become silent....  I wonder if I said something or acted offensively.   I've not asked my friend why.  There is only silence.... a facebook friend hi... and then blank silence.   And no, I'm not a peace.   There was not enough depth for either of us to trust each other to talk.   My suspicions is that my lady-friend avoids me due to political statements and beliefs that I express too freely (and hopefully at the appropriate times)

Regarding my blog today.... a quilter girlfriend told me that someone looked at statements in this 2009-2012 BQUILTIN BLOG......   and I made a statement about his/her relative.  The person was indignant -- disagreeing with me.   My daughter is much more of a private individual, and reminds me that since GOOGLE and Facebook are such open, public-print venues -- that I should be careful!

My underlying thoughts and principles, motives and outlook on life are reflected as I write.   I have no malice directed at anyone.

A happy chat with a fellow quilter..

What a great way to start the day!!!    On my coffee am stop, a cute-short lady identified me as b-quiltin studio.... a quilter!   It was so nice to meet Mary from Enid .. we've been to other quilt events!

Down side.. is that this job is asking me to be on time 8am....  oh well, whatever is progressive severe discipline!     Lord, just let me retire happily within the next 3-4 years!    

BTW, the Lord happily called me back to Scripture Memory last night via Psalm 141!!!  PTL!
