I've also been busy sorting through my stash, trying to pick out fabrics for the Bumble Beans WaveRunner quilt along (button on my sidebar), and for Don't Look Now's quilt along - a beautiful and Kellie promises! easy to do pattern called Joseph's Coat. Isn't it lovely?

For the WaveRunner I'm thinking I'm going to tone it down a bit from my last two quilts - they were very bright - and go for more muted tones, with a little bit of punch thrown in by way of the orange.
For Kellie's quilt along (which starts Nov 1) I'm also working out of my stash, and am thinking of going red and white. I think I've got enough variety in my reds to make it interesting, although I may have to seach for a few more.
colours appear more orange than in real life
I've also spent an awful lot of time cruising in the blogosphere! I just don't know where the time goes! I just pop in for a few minutes to see what everyone has been up to, and before you know it, HOURS have gone by! It's cutting into my sewing time! Will I stop? Not on your life, but I do have to start setting time limits for each sitting, I think.
support myself through sewing and creative endeavours
- travel to Australia and New Zealand (I promised myself when I moved west that I would not move back east until I had visited down under!)
- rid myself of clutter
- be positive and supportive of family and friends (and myself!)
- not wish for more than I need
- have faith in my own abilities
