'Tis Friday... thank heavens!

The psychological power of a Friday to make me feel better is really un-explained....
I haven't felt great all week, but this morning when I woke up, I was smiling....I actually got some sleep.....so.........YAAAAAY! Friday!

I've been really busy with commissions and making a few new Halloween patterns.... so at least I did do something....apart from the crying. And then Harvey, Irma and its chum Jose showed up and I realized that even when I feel down and so misunderstood, NOTHING I go through is like those people who have lost everything, loved ones...... I feel like such a jerk.

My friend Joan lives in Houston and I have been so worried about her and her family. They're safe but now its the road to the city's recovery... wow! I was watching CNN and the devastation on the Caribbean is mind boggling. Our news channels here don't cover any of it - why'm I not surprised.....
My heart goes out to Florida now too.........

Today we're going to be discussing something else I've been working on....
I have to make a quilt for the Art with Fabric hop coming soon and the theme will be Mother Earth.... which I'm not sure what it even really means.... it sounds so Eastern Mystical philosophy....hmmmm...



anyhoo, I saw a quilt designed by Quilt Fusion and although raw edge applique, I really think it's soooo cute!and its about the earth - right.... (You should check out their website and you can score a free pattern each week)... This pattern was one I bought. Its called One World.

Im around half way but now I've decided that I will make another mini quilt for Art with Fabric hop and this one will just be for me.... because its so stinkin' cute!!


 Block 1 and 2


Block 3 and 4


I actually cant wait to do that Whale.... and the cute Polar bear.
