PL Calendar #5
A cheerful greeting brings people closer to one another
Interactions between people start with greeting one another.
Take the initiative and be the first to open your heart.
A quilt is made by piecing pieces together, each quilt is different. Even a quilt done using the same pattern, when done by another person, will end up looking very different. Choices in size, material, colours used, textiles selected, like people, no two are alike.
A smile, a friendly word, listening with an open heart, make today another special day. Share an invisible hug, smile and say hi!
Happiness is finding that the coloured hook and loop tape is on sale, buy 1 and get 2 free. I had not seen coloured hook and loop before, so I was for sure, having a few. Especially they were in the fall colours I was on the hunt for.
Took me awhile but I finally found the fat quarters, and when I did, I forgave the shop for hiding way in the back. They were all half price. I managed to find enough quarters in the colours I was wanting.
I’m even going to follow the “rules” and launder the pieces first before I start to cut them up and heat bond them. I am showing you the raw pieces, before I play with them. Hopefully I will eventually show you the end product. I have no idea what I will do with the tape, but the possibilities are endless.
I’ve also begun to work on the art/junk journals again .. fall is in the air, I always get a nudge from Mother Nature at this time of year, the vibrant colours she splashes all around us is enticing. Even the rows of golden rod and mellow yellows that dot the fields along the highways call out to me.
The unbelievable thrill of seeing the 1000 shades of orange/reds that wave from the hardwood trees that line the road, exhilarates.
My stash is slowly taking on the colour theme that I will work with. Yes I am excited at the pending creativity that is awake and churning to get going… anyone else out there feeling that zing that is floating around in the ethers of the bright fall days. Not to mention the crisp night breezes that lull us to sleep.
It has been a super great Thursday … hello Friday, I’m ready for you.
May the happiness of the season, float effortlessly your way. Appreciate and enjoy this season of harvest.
PL Principle # 3 I will live with a mind of appreciation towards others and things.
