Bright & Random Happiness


I pulled out those blocks I showed the other day and determined that I need to find more of the whirly gig fabrics before I can do much with more blocks of that pattern. After a morning of communing with the vacuum cleaner and dusting, I decided to revel in the sunshine and open windows. Our temps today are nearly 60 and even though I know that it will most likely be 20 next week, I'm so perky today. Well, maybe it's the temps and maybe it's the new treadmill or a combo of both. Just standing at the window in the sun was fabulous.
So, I am putting another random round on the blocks and making them a bit larger. I had the presence of mind to throw the matching fabrics into the baggie before I tossed it into the pile so there are plenty of pieces to make up another couple of rounds of these blocks. I wish I'd had the same presence of mind for the Whirly gig blocks. I think I need to dig in the closet of shame for those fabrics and that may require a cocktail and an exorcist. After the softness of the baby quilt colors and some other things lately-this riot of color feels so...happy! Off to enjoy the probably all too brief taste of spring. Hope you have something fun to do today. If not....find something. Escape from home for an hour or two(hello??? Diane & Erika????)
More tomorrow.

It's easy to get locked in a pattern of staying inside during the winter months - even in my neck of the woods. Still on the days when the sun shines bright you just have to enjoy it to the limits. I think you have the right idea . . . . oh and I love those sunny fabrics your working with too *s8

Hey!! I'm in beautiful San Francisco. It is so good to get away and see my other kids.

Dee, Dahling? You commune with your vacuum cleaner?? NOW, I know what my problem's been. I've been fighting instead of communing! So far, I've wound my 3' long hair around her beater bar so tightly she choked to her almost death and cut her cord in half in two places by a case of hit and run that caused heat stroke and de-cordation! I'm taking my hour break today and just ohhmmming with her on the living room floor! And if hubby comes home and surprises us in the act, I'll just claim mid-life crisis and the need for a spring-like break!

It's always nice to have a change, isn't it! Color-wise, I mean. Low temps...not so much. We're at -7* this morning. Youch.

Happy Valentine's Day, Dee! Hugs-a-plenty to you!

I think it is probably a mix of the sunshiny weather and the exercise.
