And the Winner Is...

Posting has taken a bit of a backseat while my sweetie and I were driving from the horrible cold and snow of the upper midwest to Florida.  Today was the first day we sat on the beach.  To say it was wonderful to feel the breezes and sun on my skin is an understatement!

Also today is the day to announce who won the pincushion prize from the Grow Your Blog party!  And the winner is Threadpainter's Art.  Congratulations!


Imperfect Circles

Two weeks ago I posted about some squares to be stitched up for a stash busting project.  So far there are 25 of them with concentric circles of assorted fabrics. In the past I have spent a lot of time and energy making things look perfect and being frustrated. In that frame of mind it is hard to be satisfied with anything so I chose another way.  My work is still a bit tidy but the lines are a little wonky and the stitches uneven, but I like it.  It is easier to work this way and I smile a lot more.
