i've spent the day re-grouping, cutting squares for quilts and napkins as well as recovering from a houseful of company while being under the weather. things came together slowly this afternoon as i brought my studio back to it's working form, attempting to caress my mind and my vision back to it's blooming. last week i spent a day making pillows from vintage butterfly quilt squares....flour sack fabrics with hand stitching and appliques. i hope that by tomorrow the dullness passes and the vitality i count on, returns. there are orders waiting to be completed. and orders to be mailed. and strips of scraps to be sewn together. i believe i'm feeling the zeal begin it's boil.
i feel like quilts are alive. they reflect all the little joys that make life special. they emanate love and warmth. the quilts i make blend a grandmother's ideals with a fresh youthful flair. there is a nostalgia for seasons past combined with hopefulness for a bright full future. you can find me online at www.chasinglightningbugs.com
