I started 2014 with good intentions - blogging at least once a week. As you have probably noticed, that fell to the wayside! The lack of post is certainly not because I have nothing to blog about! The quilting front continues to be productive. I've started and finishing a few projects. Okay, starting more than I've finished, but nonetheless, my quietness is not for lack of materiel to write about.
If you want to know the truth, I'm in a quiet mood. When I'm in that "mood phase," I shut down! It's that overwhelming feeling I get every now and again about life in general. There is so much I want to do .... and so little time to accomplish it all. Perhaps I need to be more realistic about my life's "to do" list. ;o)
A couple of weeks ago, dd and I went shopping for a prom dress on St Hubert street in Montreal. That street is laden with history, it was the "street" to shop for the latest clothes and accessories during the 1950s - the fashion street. Today, it is more of a "formal wear street" (prom & wedding) than for anything else. Although I did see a shop that made custom bras and hats, something my mother would have bought as a working woman. I was surprised we didn't find anything. Many of the dresses were simple, nothing fancy about them ... all with an outrageous price tag! Oh well, perhaps I have not kept up with the times.
This one was reasonably prices and I think looked wonderful .... but she found it to "puffy!"
Afterwards we took a ride in the neighborhood of my youth! It was nostalgic! A wonderful mother and daughter bounding time!
On the quilting front, I have started a new wool and cotton project - Words to Live By designed by Primitive Gatherings.
Don't let the half square triangles intimidate you! It's a sinch using my "mass production" method.
I have prepped all of my blocks and managed to finish stitching the center block.
This way, I can alternate between sewing and stitching!
I decided not to write the words on the quilt! I like it wordless! It certainly fits my present mood! lol
Thank you for stopping by my little world in cyberspace! Cheers!
